Spotty but Smiley – Fri 13th Nov 2015

By | November 13, 2015

It’s been Children In Need day today and D’s school has participated with a “Get Spotty” non-uniform day.

Normally D finds these themed days at school quite challenging, not only does everyone look different to usual – whether it be World Book Day, Be a Superhero or anything else – but also there is a lot of excitement around.  Justifiable excitement but it’s all very out of routine for her.

One year we walked into school to find the Head dressed as a ghostbuster and the deputy as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, wonderful costumes but quite confusing for a girl who had no idea of the characters.

Today, however, the theme was “Get Spotty” and she coped really well.  She enjoyed wearing her spotty tshirt under a half spotty sleeveless dress, with leggings and a spotty headband.  All very familiar clothes to her and it helped that everyone else looked more or less the same – apart from their spotty/dotty clothes.  No masks or people running around pretending to be Spider-Man, it all looked okay.

As a consequence, she’s had a good day, a great end to a calm week, which has been very welcome after the week or so before.

T’s school had a non-uniform day too and he enjoys those with no peskily tight ties to wear.

Costumes can be quite scary…It sounds like the spots worked well!
hehehe! My girl has a choice of a clip on tie or one that goes around her neck. She chose the clip on one….She felt strangled by the other one. x

Thanks, it has been hard in previous years for D to see all the strange costumes around, she happily joined in. Clip on ties do seem better, I certainly wouldn’t want to wear one 5 days a week x
