What a hectic half term it has been:
I have been teaching (and the actual teaching as all my teacher friends will know is only about half of what needs to be done in a class ) every day which is the most I have worked for over a decade. In many ways it has been fantastic to have the freedom to plan and teach in the way I want and we have had a really fun time. The class has been fairly small and I have loved trying out new ideas and seeing the children respond so well to my ideas. I have had the most amazing and inspirational view from my classroom
I have watched spring arrive through the glass wall.
Everyone has been amazing and so helpful, Mr Oldpolicehouse has been even more lovely and supportive than usual.
Amidst all this the children have all been doing and achieving so many wonderful things. Grade 3 piano was passed very well by lovely older girl, although we are all looking forward to hearing some different tunes.
Middle boy played in his first football match,
he is very proud of his medal. He is also going to put the tooth fairy out of business, loosing teeth almost daily at the moment. He was also a super reader in the Easter Mass. Oldest boy was part of the football team at his school who played well and won the County Cup. He also chose his options (how old do we feel?) and was so lovely and kind to his Italian exchange partner that he has made us very proud of the wonderful person he is becoming.
Middle girl had a birthday and impressed her mummy by wonderful keyboard playing at school. She is always such a sweet girl and so kind and thoughtful to the family. Ruby has somehow turned into a lively and adventurous almost toddler. Her latest trick is to climb onto chairs or tables and get stuck, where has that chilled out babe gone? She will keep a cute headband in her hair which is great news for those who like to accessorize her wardrobe! Little boy is still full of energy ......
