Good morning!
It was another gloriously warm day yesterday although it started with just a touch of frost on the cars.  The children certainly enjoyed the sunshine.

The day wasn't as long as I feared.  Staff meeting was very short so I had time to get home, have my meal and then get back into school again for the evening meeting.  That was also quite short, making the whole day much easier than I had expected.

The week is dragging its heels rather though.  The SATs tests disrupt the normal timetable considerably and I am surprised the children are coping as well as they are.  Just today to get through and then they will be over.  Friday is a marking day, Monday and Tuesday will be the level 3 maths and reading tests and then it's just the post mortems.  I'm glad I won't have to go through it all again.  Actually, nor will anyone else as SATs tests are stopping after this year but there will be more (and harder) tests in their place, even for the little year 2s.

So, today is the short writing and then there is a nice practical maths lesson on 3d shapes and their nets followed by more papier mache in the afternoon.  I have a feeling there's a meeting after school but I need to check that.

Sadly, the weather is forecast to turn very bad around lunchtime and stay that way for the rest of the day.  It's a right pain because there's supposed to be an 'Inflatable Day' after school but if it rains it won't happen.  These sessions are lovely.  Families come and set up picnics in the middle of the field while the children play on the inflatables.

Whatever the weather, I hope we all have a good day!  Now I am kitchen and freezer bound to sort things out for the day after which I will look over my planning for today and sort out the food planning for next week.  Even at this time of the day it's all go!


  1. good luck with the weather Joy the forecast looks terrible.

  2. It does, doesn't it. Sunny now but the skies aren't clear. Fingers crossed.

  3. Meetings, and yet more meetings - the bane of teaching. If only they could be done away with [smile]. At least you know there aren't many more to sit thro'. Jx

  4. Indeed I do and also it was cancelled. Oh, the joy!
