By all accounts he loved school and had a great time.
…but my boy has been known to think outside the box, and THIS is what he made within 5 minutes of being in his new classroom….
I asked him what he had built.
“It’s a prison Mum. See here are the bars, here are the walls, here are the smoke stacks and here is a big candle on the top.”
(the candle bit is probably because we live near a petrol refinery and refer to the elevated flare as “the big candle” but aside from that, references to prison aren’t exactly commonplace in our house ).
I just wonder if my strange, curious 5 year-old boy has come up with his own metaphor for school within 5 minutes of starting???
(and no – none of us have likened school to a “prison”, not do we talk much about prisons).
