It did look pretty yesterday though. It started at lunchtime and drifted about lightly until just before afternoon play. Then it started properly - huge big flake-bundles, some as big as pin pong balls, and lots of them. If it had been a degree colder it would have settled thickly but it wasn't so it didn't! By five o'clock-ish it had more or less stopped. The children were a bit manic and several of us pulled the blinds down after a while (meanies!).
I felt very silly yesterday. After rushing around getting all my resources ready for the investigatory science lesson for my observation, I was told it wasn't yesterday, it was today! Doh!!! Never mind, at least all is in readiness and I won't have to scrabble around today when I get to school!
I did have to rather hurriedly prepare for a lesson I hadn't planned to deliver until later, but, thanks to Google and the various resources one can find through it, I managed to get pictures and information enough to meet the learning objective and it went OK really. There wasn't time to finish but that's not a problem, we can make time today.
As for today - it's doubtful whether the children will get their outdoor PE this morning, given that the playgrounds will either be icy or puddly and I refuse to have thirty pairs of plimsolls (most probably unnamed) drying around my classroom for the rest of the day. Recipe for disaster!! So I can more the afternoon phonic session to the morning and that gives me more time for the science lesson - I was concerned that there was too much planned for the time available.
And when I get home there will be a lovely beef and vegetables in beer casserole waiting for me. It went into the slow cooker last night and will gently simmer away all day today. I might add some pulses too, to bulk it out, or some lentils to thicken and flavour the sauce. Good, heart-warming flavoursome comfort food, lots of it and healthy too. Can't be bad, can it?
Remember the photo of the flowering bush I posted yesterday? It wasn't looking quite so chirpy yesterday!
