A very busy week indeed, culminating in a memorable day.
The school has been full with Parents and friends busily preparing the Hall for our Christmas Fayre tomorrow (11am - 3pm). It looks great and they have all worked so hard.
The school also has an Open Morning for prospective Reception children and their Parents from 10-12 so a slight overlap but the more the merrier.
I have spent part of the day helping Mrs North's ridiculously talented mother transfer the children's work and trench display from the Hall to the old Infant area, opposite the Year 1 classrooms. It looks wonderful and make sure you have a look during Open Morning next week.
I then had to smuggle in a new addition which will appear in January....guaranteed to have most of the children either drooling or squealing when they see it.....but you'll all have to wait.
I have finally had some joy trying to book authors/illustrators to visit the school. We have Paul Geraghty confirmed as joining us on Monday 11th January for the day.....he's worth a google and you will get an idea of the fun we are all going to have when he turns up.
I am also delighted to say that my two week stint of opening the school ends tomorrow morning. Our wonderful premises manager Willfredo is back from his two weeks of training and I am ever so glad!
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see many of you at the School Fayre tomorrow.
