I do feel like I have been a part time employee this week because I have been on so many courses but I have been working – I have not started the half -term holiday early! I did miss the ‘Open Afternoon’ and I do not like being out of school when parents are visiting but I had to attend the training that I was on so it was unavoidable. I did have had lots of positive feedback about the afternoon though.
I was at the ‘Sharing Assembly’ on Monday which I always enjoy but I have to say that I was particularly impressed this time with how well the children presented themselves. It is a nerve – wracking experience for a small child to stand up and speak in front of a whole room of people and the children did themselves proud. I look forward to the next assembly just before Easter.
I also managed to attend the two ‘Valentine Discos’ which were enjoyed by everyone who attended. It is good to have a fun activity just before a holiday and it is good for the children to socialise together out of the classroom. I would like to thank all the members of the PTA for organising the event and I would also like to thank all of my teachers for helping to run the discos. A special mention should go to our resident DJ Mr. Spring who had to come back from the course with me and put together his ‘set’. As always he did a brilliant job for us. Calvin Harris should be looking over his shoulder.
We have next week off and I do find it amazing that half term holiday is here already –but then we have only had a 5 week half-term. I am sure we will all still enjoy the week. I always feel very optimistic after this break because all the days are getting longer and we actually start going home in daylight which is always uplifting. I hope you all have a relaxing break and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 20th February.
