First day of term interview
Last year, when I took Little Miss E to buy her school shoes for reception, she was given a book from Clarks to fill in to celebrate her start at school. I remember thinking at the time how nice it would be to ask similar questions at the beginning of every academic year – for her to express her views on how she’s feeling and to see how she changes from year to year. And so, I came up with this first day of term interview to be completed every September.
Part of me thought it was a bit daft, but I mentioned it to a few of my mummy friends and they loved the idea and told me to share it here. So, here you go! You can see it below, but it’s also attached as a downloadable PDF here – Cardiff Mummy Says First Day of Term Interview – so you can easily print it out for your little ones to complete (with your help, if needed!). Or feel free to use the idea to create your own back to school interview with questions that are better suited to your child. I hope you like it!
Do let me know if you use this idea – I always really appreciate any comments in the comments section below, on the Cardiff Mummy Says Facebook page or you can tweet me on @cardiffmummy

What a lovely idea. Children will love at things like this when they are older x
Ah I love this idea, lovely to keep and look back on with your children in years to come x
This is such a great idea! My girls start nursery next week so I’ll be doing something similar x
Great idea. It’s such an emotional day – great way to create a lasting memory.
This is a great idea! A good one for the scrapbook 🙂 x
I flipping love this idea! Getting information out of my boy about his school life is impossible but specific questions are such a good idea. I have just printed out! 🙂
That is so sweet! Can you imagine how lovely it will be, to read back, when she is at college/uni age? xx
Aw, I hope so. I’m a bit of a softie for memory keepsakes, so I hope my children appreciate them all too! x
Thank you very much for sharing this xxx
Great idea! It would be lovely to look back on in years to come! x
This is such a lovely idea, and one I’m going to try to remember to do with Santi when he’s old enough 🙂
This is such a lovely idea, it would be nice to keep it with a photo of them on their first day of school. I love things like this to look back on, I’m making a scrapbook for Aria and this is the type of thing that I would include in it, not just yet obviously but when she is older!
What a great idea! I am so pinching this idea when the girls stsrt school. x
What a brilliant idea for kids, mine are too young but I have shared this with my sister who will love it!
What a great idea, would have been lovely to have this to use over the years when my daughter was little x
