Another Brick in the Wall
Wednesday was a big day for Tiddler - she was awarded a brick at the school assembly "for brilliant phonics work". They have an interesting rewards system - if you do really well at something, and it can be for something as minor as paying attention if you don't usually, you may be in line for a rectangle of paper with your name and the reason on it. This gets pasted up on the wall as you enter the main school building, for all to see. Arranged in a brick-wall pattern, of course, hence the name. She was very very giddy about this, and we were so pleased for her!
The phonics is letter sounds, incidentally. She knows more than they are currently teaching, and can give examples of words starting with the letters that they were amazed at! "Not the usual words we get"! We've got all the sheets pinned up on the doors, not that she seems to need them in order to identify the sounds.
In other news, I've finally got around to starting to get my head around php classes, and might even get the rewrite of Viewdata Viewer done. Not bad since I promised it nearly a year ago... I need that in order to do the database work for the Viewdata Website that is in turn needed in order to progress that to a much more interactive system.
