It was quite a day, but in a very good way!
The rain cleared up well before morning play. It came back just after the end of afternoon play. It stopped by the time the children came out of school. The children had their first outdoor PE lesson for months.
Can't ask for more than that.
As for the lesson observation, obviously I can't say a lot or give details but sometimes, for no perceptible reason, the planning and lesson delivery just flow seamlessly through. The children get the objective, the learning outcomes are overwhelmingly positive and it's just all most satisfying all round. Today was such a day and I could not be happier with the final grading or more embarassed by the glowing feedback.
As someone used to say, 'Oooooh, I could crush a grape'. However, as that's far too energetic at the end of a busy day, I am celebrating with some results of the grape crushing of others. Very nice too!
And tomorrow is SEN day!
