The start of a sparkling new term 

My guess is that come Monday morning we will all utter exactly the same words… 

Good holiday?

Yes thanks 

Just went far too quickly!

I didn’t do half as much as I’d hoped

The weather wasn’t too bad was it

Could do with another two weeks off 

Only 7weeks till half term, yeah and one of those weeks is a 4 day week due to May bank Holiday… You will then walk away and probably High 5 the air! 

This term I’m approaching things a little differently. 

I can see time slipping through my fingers like sand in an egg timer

  
How can we already be 2/3 of the way through the year already? We only have 1 term to continue to make a difference in the lives of these little munchkins. These little peeps who came into our lives only a few months ago as a crazy box of escaping frogs, now are able to problem solve, share, solve conflicts, investigate why things occur, visit the bathroom independently, change for PE in less than half an hour (only a reception practitioner will truly understand the achievement of this!)

Yet as we walk into school on Monday will be thinking only 7weeks to go! 

So there we have it my friends here is my pledge to you, to look at the next 7 weeks as an opportunity to continue to grab the opportunities wih two hands! 

Go hunting for bugs with a magnifying glass,

  
 lie on your backs and make pictures out of whispy White clouds, 

  
walk through long grass that tickles your legs, collect wild flowed and make daisy chains! 

  
Enjoy every second with this little lot! 🌼🌼

  1. You are totally right…I was thinking all of those things and could hear myself saying them as I read your post. It does NOT seem possible that already I am getting ready to welcome “NEW” little ones into my classroom on starter visits, and that soon enough it will be September and we will be starting all over again.
    I wont bother to be saying “only seven weeks to go”…

  2. A lot of people count down days and weeks. In my old job a year ago this was how I coped day to day. Now I see things in a different light and don’t feel the need to count down the time. Live each moment and reflect on each day.
