3... 2... 1... Go! We've had an excellent afternoon in year five today. Our classroom was abuzz with sticking Sellotape, careful cutting and gloopy glueing.

What a year! The children who have attended my Fantasy Football Club have astounded me this year. Their commitment to coming each and every week has been a joy to witness.

Summer Sun Easter eggs always look so appealing in the shops – bright, colourful and stuffed with chocolate. Having said that, I certainly think (as a household) we’ve consumed more than enough to see us through to next year now! Throughout the Easter break we’ve been incredibly busy. Day trips to faraway places, visiting [...]
