Day 266 of 365: It's All Downhill From Here
Double meaning on today's post because we're in the final 4-week stretch of school remaining until our 6-week summer holiday AND my 365 blog now has less than100 days remaining, which means I have kept it up for nearly a full YEAR!
Year's 5 and 6 had the chance to do some team-building this afternoon. PC Paul and PC Bobby came to Kingsthorne with some fun equipment and we met in the quad after lunch to try different team-building activities.
The kids had loads of fun and I have to admit it was a nice change from being in the classroom sitting in a chair. I'd like to continue this a couple of times a week for the remaining weeks just to keep their motivation up. They really are a great group of kids and will certainly keep a special place with me as my first class whilst teaching in the UK.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
