School – Word of the Week

This week my word is School.

The half term is over and the kids are back at school. They went back ok, I think they do actually look forward to going back and seeing their friends. They don’t give me too much hassle anyway. I don’t like having to rush around in the morning, but it’s nice to get a little peace and quiet in the daytime. I do look forward to them coming home though.

Then just two days back and we have problems with Star. I have already written about this in detail in my previous post so I won’t repeat myself here. Things are still not good but she is still going in so hopefully she feels confident that things will improve.

Yesterday my younger kids school was on the local news because their dinner lady was chosen to cook with the chef Glyn Purnell in his restaurant. Two of the Little Man’s classmates were interviewed for the news item.

Finally, today we are invited to a special Diwali Assembly by the Little Man’s class. I’ve already had an earful of their Diwali song. It’s always nice to be invited into school for occasions like this. As my children grow up I see these days fading away.

    It's definitely all about school for you this week then. I like going in for things, too, and I am sure when Little Man starts in Reception next year I'll feel like I'm there all the time! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    We are still on half term here our school has extended it to allow for family holidays but Daisy is raring to get back. I'm sorry to hear Star is having a tough time.

    Oh no! So sorry that things haven't improved for Star….At least she is still going in. That is a good sign.
    I hope the assembly went well….I do love things like that at school!

    Oh so true. There are less chances to join in with school events as they get older. I'm savouring the last year and a bit of my youngest being at primary. I bet the assembly was fun. Hope it all settles down for Star. #wotw

    A break from routine is good, but sometimes it's nice to get back to it. Hope today went well and that things settle oown.

    I think it's great that they are learning about different cultures. Celebrating Diwali in school is certainly a new thing to my knowledge.#WotW
