I have a pile of english marking to do today, phonics, handwriting, and all the work they did this morning for their english unit work on fairy tales and narrative writing.
They were really on task today because I cracked the whip a bit as we need to finish school slightly early so we can get Pollyanna a new pair of sneakers, which we did successfully, she went from a size 11 to a size 13. I can't believe how fast she is growing! It was then off to drama lessons which the kids really enjoyed today, thankfully .... Ben didn't enjoy the last couple of lessons and I was worrying about how he would get through the rest of the term. This has been a good education in actually finding something that Ben hasn't liked participating in!
