Oh half term, you are a sight for sore eyes.
I woke up on Saturday morning to Nerys dancing on the landing, singing about it being the start of the holidays, which sort of tells you all you need to know about how the children are feeling about the break!
They have coped so well with this latest spell of home learning, just getting on with things (for the most part) and joining in their live lessons each day with smiles on their faces.
We broke up the last week of term with a very chilly walk in Singleton park last Wednesday. Not that you would know that it was particularly cold given the fact that Nerys abandoned her coat half way round the park.
I think all the running and then climbing all over these tree stumps and giant logs really warmed her up, while my fingers were slowly freezing as I stood around taking photos!
Worth it though, when I get pictures like this of the children together.
Now we’ve got a whole week ahead of us with no school work to tackle, other than a bit of Welsh homework for Rhys, and we are all so ready for it.
I’m not entirely sure what we’re going to do all week, considering the facts that Steve and I both still need to work and we can’t actually take the children anywhere when we do have time! The main thing for me is to let the children have a chance to relax, to switch off a bit. So it’ll most likely be walks to the beach and trips to the park when the weather plays ball, a bit of baking, some fun with card games and board games, and still more screen time than I would like!
Have you got any plans for half term, or ideas for fun things to do with the children at home?
