Hi! We have recently arrived in Australia from Dubai. My son was attending a UK curriculum school in Dubai and was in Year 4 (he had completed one term of year 4). In his class he was one of the younger students and was definitely struggling to keep up at times (he has dyslexia). It's my understanding that strictly speaking UK Year 4 is equivalent of halfway through Australian Year 3? (i.e. six months difference). To cut a long story short, my son has now been put in year 4, he is by far the youngest in the class (June baby) and several kids are a full year older than him. Given that he was already struggling with UK Year four, do you think he should be in Australian Year 4? It's only day two of the school year in QLD and if there is a mistake I want to change it ASAP. I would love to know your experience transitioning to an Australian School! Thanks
