My Word of the Week
This week my word is Survived.
First, we are all alive and almost completely well so we survived last weeks illness, yay! Thanks for all the kind thoughts and get well wishes.
On Monday the girls went back to school after a whole week off sick. It’s not very often they have a whole week off but this bug was a serious one.
Tuesday was Enrichment Day at school and this means the whole school routine is interrupted for a day of activities based on a theme.
Star had been told that her year were doing ‘the Hunger Games’ and Boo’s year were going on a trip to Conkers. The theme for enrichment day was Survival!
They didn’t really enjoy their days and both game home in a grumpy mood. (I know Star had spent all day in the SEND classrooms.) I think Boo didn’t enjoy her trip because she was still not feeling 100% well.
They both survived though, and school continued all week.
The Little Man survived an eye test. Ok, I know that’s not much of a task but he’s been having problems for a while now and wouldn’t tell us why. The teacher suggested that the reason he wasn’t completing all the work at school may have something to do with his eyesight. So we got him tested and he now has glasses.
His work at school hasn’t improved though. He’s such a naughty boy, not listening or doing as he is told. He complains of being bored all the time and won’t even try to get on with the other children. We will get to the bottom of why he is behaving this way, but in the meantime he has a little break. He has survived another term at school and now has two weeks for half term instead of one. The reason for this is because they are moving to a brand new school building.
Now it’s your turn, what have you been up to this week?
