laconn - yeah that's what I worry about - especially stuff like, what you do with them on the first day - do you have to throw them striaght into the curriculum etc. I'm starting in a reception class, so it will all be new to them too. I'm lucky as I'm spending a week with the current reception teacher (who's leaving) and I shall be in my class from 2nd June. It's really nervewracking when you kind of go in blind - not knowing what you are doing!!!!
