Just a quick post today.
School has finished, always a sad occasion with the 10 year olds leaving and this year, two of our teachers as well. I've worked with both of them in different classes. They were both Newly Qualified Teachers when we (school) got them and with a few years of patience and the help of the other teaching assistants we got them whipped into shape. We had a farewell meal last night which was a very raucous affair.
In September we have two new NQTs and the process starts again!
We had a fabulous sports day with a picnic lunch and the trips have all proved to be enjoyable.
I've also been making more clock cosies! The teacher leaving from reception asked for a clock cosy for her new classroom so I was only too happy to oblige. I popped it on the clock in the classroom and the reception children said they liked it better than the old one and too be fair the colours were much more vibrant. So, I had to make another cosy!
Here they are.
Master Clicky has been doing experience all week at a local company engineering company and enjoying it immensely. He's been machining metal into different shaped pieces of metal, checking out the 3D printers (they're amazing Mum!) looking at the lasers and drinking lots of coffee.
We are off to France tomorrow at 2.30am to carry out some more of a long list of work on our little house. I really should be packing now, so I'll say bye for now and see you soon. Fingers crossed we don't get another thunder storm like last night's when were driving!
