How is the interview?
The interview usually held by the head teacher, primary school, primary school teacher, psychologist and speech therapist. At a language school may also attend the foreign language teacher.
The interview lasts about 15-20 minutes and takes place in the presence of a parent. “Presence” as a rule, is that the first parent signs a piece of paper that agrees to an interview, then submits the documents and write a report with a request to take the child to school, and the rest of the time sitting at the other end of the class, watching as his child cope with questions and assignments.
Important! First schools to accept children living in nearby houses. If you are not “assigned” to the school, in the statement you have to write: “please enroll my child for the vacant place.” This means that in the end, you may be denied due to lack of availability.
What questions can ask in interview? Any of the above list of required knowledge.
The child will be asked to call his name/surname, address, name of parents, their occupation. Ask how old he is, how much will a year from now, and what was two years ago. Ask him to read a few sentences to tell a poem and be sure to offer to make a story on the picture.
You can ask about animals (for example, what is the difference between wild from home), what time of the year, what do the doctor or the postman…
Then check math skills (will be asked to calculate how to arrange the numbers in ascending/descending order or to solve the puzzle). Can even hold a graphic dictation.
Will certainly ask the question: “why are you going to school?”.

He should not be afraid to ask again if something is not understood or not heard. And best of all, of course, at home to lose such a situation, and at night to tell the baby a story about how the bear/hare/Fox went to record in a forest school and what came of it.What documents are required before enrolling in first grade?

Like a lot of effort in preparation for the school, parents spend to teach their treasure to write, to count and to read. But, as life shows, for successful adaptation is not the main thing. It doesn’t matter if your child can TAKE those requirements that directly, from the earliest days, the school shall serve him (to sit in class, listen to teachers, to perform the job) if he knows how to control his behavior and to SUBORDINATE its established rules. This is the main criterion of the child’s readiness for school
