Is the rule to invite all boys or girls in a class for a birthday party in primary school or can you invite only a few? My son is turning 6 and I am a little worried if some kids will feel left out if I only invite 3-5 of his friends. He goes to a school in Lewes.

You're so right, Penelope. After all, we're all very nicely middle class here and we should try to be kind to the tiny working class minority. Do you people know what you sound like?

Wait a sodding minute how has this got to do with class in any way? Wow there is a spate of vicious trolls out at the moment . I have lives in lewes for many years and have never experienced this so called class devide brought up on this forum at the moment. Someone ( or a handful of people at the very most) have an agenda here.

Tilly if it is a genuine post, 3-5 is fine or the whole class, just don't leave a few children out as that would be mean .

I don't mind good trolling, but most of the stuff on here is just really obvious and not particularly clever.
Re: the question, Mrs P is right: either invite a few friends or the whole class. To invite most of the class but leave a few out would go down like a lead balloon and be unkind to the kids who were excluded, but just sticking to three to five friends is fine. And unless you're a glutton for punishment, keep it to two hours. In my experience, a two hour kids' party feels more like six.

Mrs P the class divide has been to great to notice, and it has not got easier.Nowadays however every begger sitting on the bridge has a nice smart phone, handy for keeping in touch with their broker in the lulls between soliciting contributions to the latest trustfund, its the trend of Shabby chic, personally I cannot abide the dirt on my Aquascum And thats a Fact

I'm with Earl on this. Whole class or a few. i remember a friend telling me that her son was the only child in the class not invited to a party and it was heartbreaking. My kids are grown now so no more kiddies parties. An entertainer, some supportive friends and a bottle of wine makes the time go a little faster.

If you are reading this Webbo, do you think you could add a question mark icon alongside the thumbs up/thumbs down icons that we can click? There are so many irrelevant, bizarre or pointless posts on this forum nowadays that I think it would now be helpful to be able to click on a question mark to denote "I have no idea what you're on about".
I'm not referring to the original birthday party question here, I'm talking about some of the replies on this and many other posts/threads.

You need to invite the whole class at that age.
Why would you not??

Because it's ecpensive to have 25 children. But I will invite 4-5, thanks for the interest!

I'd invite max 6. And my top tip is start at 3pm, have a tightly controlled plan that includes games and going outside, then provide said kids with a solid meal like bangers and mash followed by birthday cake. Don't do 'party food' or loads of sweets - it hypes them up, and you need them to stay calm and sane, otherwise tears before bedtime. 2 hours is fine. We always had lucky dpi pressies for the kids when they went home - much easier than party bags - usually something like a book or felt tips or small toy , which kids loved. You could also do the going home pressies as a treasure hunt, making sure they all find one. Hope it goes well for you - try and enjoy it !
