More holiday facts!
We still have some classes in the UK on their half term break but last week I discovered that there are lots of different names & times for holidays at this time of the year.
- In NY the schools have a week off in February to link with ‘President’s Day’ & it is called ‘Winter Break’
- Holidays around in the US around Christmas are known as ‘Christmas Break’ even though it is not necessarily regarded as a Christian holiday
- ‘Spring Break’ comes around Easter.
- In Ireland, schools could choose to have a week off now or have a couple of days then save them for the better weather. This is also known as ‘mid-term break’ & apparently, Seamus Heaney wrote a moving poem with that title.
Thank you, those teachers who got in touch!

This week we have a strange group invading the wood!
Things to consider:
- Where have they come from?
- Why are they here?
- What mood are they in?
The form will close at 23.45 UK time on 24th February
