Today my Mouse completed his last day in year 3, and my Moomin completed her last day in Year 1.
It’s been a crazy school year, the children spent January to April at home, and we had a few isolation periods too where they were home due to members of their bubble testing positive for covid. This has had an effect on the children (more so CJ than Moo due to his additional needs) learning wise, but they have both worked so hard.
We now have 6 weeks where the children are at home for their summer holidays. We have a few trips away planned, it’s Dan and Moo’s birthday (35 and 6) and I’m sure we will spend a lot of time in the garden (hopefully in the pool), going to the local parks, and in the back street with the kids next door and their bikes. The children next door are the same age as CJ (in the same class at school) and one year younger than Moo, and they get on great. We will also go visit my best girl and her mum (my sister from another set of parents) at the seaside.
Throw some ideas at me for good things to keep kids (8 and nearly 6) busy. I told them we may be able to make slime (but not bring it into the house), and we may go swimming to the new pool in Pontefract.
I hope all those with kids have a good 6 weeks – I might not have any hair by the time they go back to school – wish me luck!
