Miss Haddakin taking him off his mother just after he started as he was crying and did not want to leave her . . . Miss Haddakin took him in . . he went crackers and started screaming for his mother and pulled the sleeve out of Miss Haddakin’s cardigan!!
Doing maths with Miss Ware . . . he would be 6ish. She told them you could count 123456789 etc but then you could also count in two’s . . . 2 4 6 8 etc as well. She asked the kids to write down as many 2’s as they could. Nobody in the class could do it but John wrote down 2 4 6 8 10 12 etc . . . and had about up to 100 on when she came round . . . the other kids had nothing!!
