We made it. The summer holidays are finally here.
Well, technically the last day of term is today but the school made it an inset day. I’m so pleased that they did, because going in for just one day at the start of the week would’ve felt so pointless!
Last week was a busy one for the children.
They’ve both been working really hard with all the rest of the school getting ready for a concert that took place on Thursday night.
It was the first time I’d seen the whole school perform together, and it had to be held in the Brangwyn Hall to fit everyone in.
Nerys’ class sang a rousing rendition of ‘Don’t stop me now’ and Rhys sang and signed ‘A thousand years’ with his year group. Each year group did a different song and the whole school sang together a few times. There were also performances from a dance group, the taiko drum club, the orchestra and the school choir.
It was an absolutely amazing evening and all the children were fantastic. They all sang their hearts out and I just felt so emotional watching them. I did well though, and didn’t actually cry at all!
After all the work and energy that went into the concert the children were quite tired by the end of the week, so we had a really lazy weekend. The furthest we went was to swimming lessons then the little park on the way home.
The children have never really gone on the see-saw together for some unknown reason, so it was really nice to see them playing well on it at the weekend.
They’re quite nicely balanced in terms of weight these days so I think it was really fun for them.
We’ve not got too much planned for this week; I’m sort of easing into the holidays with a trip to the local library to sign up for the summer reading challenge and maybe a trip to town or the museum later in the week.
Have your summer holidays started? Are you raring to go or are you taking things slowly this week?
