My son started reception in September. He won't be five until August. He knows about 20 sounds, will write his name and was starting to write before Christmas. He now says he hates writing and feels under pressure at school, in his own words "I have to write 3 sentences and I don't even know all my sounds yet", I've spoken to his teacher who feels he needs to be stretched. I'm concerned he's feeling a failure when he's only just started. We've been given a list of 100 words for him to learn, he probably knows about four of them. What are the expectations of young reception children?
