<p>Hi, I am new on this site.</p>
<p>I am a French mother and I am moving to England (in the surroundings of Windsor) in June.</p>
<p>My son, Luc, who is 7 years old, will be attending an English state school.</p>
<p>I have not chosen/found the school yet.</p>
<p>He knows a few words of English and will have to manage at school...</p>
<p>I am trying to do my best to prepare him for this huge change and would like to</p>
<p>know how English pupils behave in an English classroom (as I have heard it is</p>
<p>so much different in the French system..).</p>
<p>He will be in year 3.</p>
<p>Could you tell me how the children call their "teacher" (by her name, Madam or Maitresse) ? Do they have to put</p>
<p>their fingers up to be allowed to speak? Are they allowed to go to the "loo"</p>
<p>during classes? How many activities are they allowed to choose after school?</p>
<p>Is it compulsory to choose an activity or can they leave school at 3:30?</p>
<p>Do all schools propose football as an activity?</p>
<p>That kind of questions which may seem stupid but would help me answer</p>
<p>all the questions of my little boy and make him feel less anxious...</p>
<p>Thanks<span style="display:none;"> </span></p>
