Sam had another parent-teacher conference yesterday. As always the teachers are really pleased with how he’s doing. He needs to put himself forwards a little more, and have a go at an answer even if he’s not sure of it. This all sounds familiar from the equivalent meetings for Lauren a couple of years ago. Claire cried when she heard about this, but that was as much to do with being ill (enough that she couldn’t go) as it was pride for her little boy!
