I also heard the nicest thing ever: When Mstr A came downstairs at one point to ask if he could play with his gameboy, and I said no, he had to play non-electronic games today so all his friends could join in, they had come to play with him, L piped up and said "I came to play with you Mstr A because you're my best friend"!
Wow, not only a friend, but a best friend! And a really nice boy at that!
The school has just been OFSTED'd, and received a pretty good report, especially since they have a far higher than average number of pupils from "disadvantaged" backgrounds and pupils with various "problems" there. I was very impressed with the three kids who came round today - all nice, well behaved and "normal" children - in that they behaved in the way, and were interested in the things that I expected 6 year old boys to be. In fact, they were far better/easier than the friends he used to invite from his old school, which had a higher than average number of children from white middle class nuclear families, and as a faith school is being held up as best practise by the Gov't.
All in all, a very sucessful day.
