    Young Writers Award and Publication

    When we returned from our holiday Ethan had a letter waiting for him. This isn’t something unusual in our house as the children do tend to get more letters than us. Normally they are appointments or reports that need to be kept in a safe place. Ethan has more paperwork that I dare to count. This letter was different though it contained a certificate. A certificate for a talent for writing. Ethan had written an original piece of creative writing and it was selected for publication in a young writers anthology. Now I must admit my first response to this was that is was sent to the wrong Ethan. There…

    Star of the Week Verbal Requests

    On Friday Ethan was very excited when he came home from school. This was because he had brought a friend home with him. His friend being the class bear. Bringing the class bear home can only mean one thing. Ethan was awarded a Star of the Week. Ethan was awarded the Star of the Week for making lots of verbal requests. This was a great achievement for him as he is quite unsettled at the moment. When Ethan is unsettled or unsure of anything he will stop using the few words he does have. This can be quite frustrating for us but it’s something we are used to. It is…

    The In The Night Garden Ride

    As you know Ethan is a thrill seeker, he loves going on rides whenever he gets the chance to. The weird thing is he has never noticed the coin operated rides at our local supermarket. We have walked past them so many times and he has never gestured to them. Today was the day that my seven-year old boy finally showed an interest in the In The Night Garden ride. We visited the supermarket tonight after school to pick up some bits. As we walked in Ethan gestured to the coin operated rides. We didn’t really respond to this and continued to make our way into the store. As we…

    Legoland Windsor LEGO City Driving School Support

    Whenever we visit Legoland Windsor Ethan points out the Lego City Driving School. I try to distract him and we quickly walk past it. With age Ethan is slowly working out that pushing the pedals will make the cars drive. In 2015 we were able to put Ethan in a car in the driving school for L-Drivers and the staff helped him drive around. He was too old for this attraction but his height made it possible for him to ride. With the Lego City Driving School there are lots of things for us to consider for Ethan. Firstly it is a bigger track for the cars which includes traffic…

    A Week Of Certificates

    This past week has brought with it an influx of certificates from the children, all unexpected and as always a lovely surprise. Star of the Week Ethan brought home a Star of the Week award from school. I do love it when he gets these as I see them as a sign that he is making great progress. This certificate was even more special as it was for ‘fantastic maths work and great communication’. We have always felt that Ethan loves his numbers and we have seen a great improvement in his communication since he has started school, it was lovely to see this recognized. The Swimming Award It was…
