It’s an exhausting time – admin and maps and worry about traffic and weather especially - but each visit brings something memorable or different.
Here are my Spring 2015 visits.
My first visit was to Oatlands Infants School. Traditional stories work well with Reception & Key Stage 1 children, and this time I had fun sharing a favourite telling tale, The Great Chappati Chase and showing them the story now exits in a book form, with beautifully coloured illustrations. (See above!)
However, alongside my sessions, I got a chance to see the chicks just hatching out of their shells – some damp, some fluffy - as well as the happy smile of a newly appointed Lollipop Man and a staff room of teachers learning a dance! (As they’ll have done their dance for Red Nose Day by now, I can put that in this blog.)
Moreover, each class was learning their poem to share it at the afternoon’s assembly. It was an inspiring rush of time. Additionally, as I sped away, I’d been given a crust of the kind cook’s most delicious bread!
So hooray for World Book Day, and everyone involved with all the organisation and administration during these times of cuts. Thank you all!
Besides, this week I’ve just finished and submitted a very small project - and this weekend it’s Easter – so I’m looking forward to some happy family times, some good egg hunting and some good reading!
Hope you have a Happy Easter too!
