do you feel like your child has settled in since starting in September?
Im not convinced my T has. He has had two bad bouts of illness, 1 was really bad virus that knocked him for six and the other just recently chicken pox before they went back to school after Christmas. I feel like just as he started to settle something has happened and this week he has really changed again (personality) being rude and tearful then saying sorry. Do you think I need to ask his teacher or just wait it out and see if its tiredness, back to routine etc etc.

Oh poor T. If you are concerned I'd definitely speak to his teacher and see how he is at school. It could just be tiredness / pushing boundaries at home but he's fine in school so I'd speak to the school and see.

The thing is, you know what he's like Belle, he really is a lovely kid and so when you see changes that are out of character you start to worry about things at school. He did say the other day they were being horrible about his spotty face but he just shrugged it off and said that's not very nice is it mummy! There are two boys that he really likes in his class but they for some reason aren't very friendly to him but then change their tune on certain days! I dislike them personally

This is what I worry about every day and it will just get worse as it gets closer to L starting school. The fact T has settled and made friends gave me a confidence boost cos the boys are so similar

L will be fine making friends, so is T but sometimes others who they see as their friends aren't always nice back :(

Definitely check with the school. But it may just be getting back into the routine of it all again. My daughter (who is in Year 2 so older) has gone from being nice to horrid and back again. On Tuesday she was really rude to me when I picked her up so I told her off and then I had tears and a tantrum. When she finally calmed down again she was really back to her old self. I think it was tiredness and getting slightly carried away.
But either way, its good to talk to the teacher and find out how they are at school. They may have noticed a change as well, or they can then watch out for any problems either in the classroom or the playground. Sometimes with the younger ones it might be the realisation that they are back at school again and do have to go every day again.

I would speak to his teacher if you have any concers, I'm sure they'll be able to put your mind to rest.
I feel like J has come on loads, he didn't really settle into nursery so I was worried but at his parents evening his teacher was really positive and said he has loads of friends etc. I think it helps that his cousin is in his class as well so he always has someone to play with and most of the kids in his class were in his nursery class.
He does have the odd morning/night where he cries and says something has happened that's upset him which is heartbreaking and he cried a couple of nights before going back after the Christmas holidays but is fine again now.
He has come on loads with reading and his books are getting more complex and the teacher has nothing but praise for him
With regards to his behaviour, he is no bother at school and generally no bother at home but does have his moments but nothing major.

Yeah maybe I will just have a little chat tonight or tomorrow night. He is generally fine but I've noticed a change since Monday and wondering if it is just tiredness or if there is a problem. He does like school but I know he would still much prefer to be at home with me and his little brother. It's been a long week so far for all of us as I think we are just very out of sync..
