Week #9 (19)

A busy time of year

Here in the UK this is a busy time for ‘celebrations’. First, we have Halloween (borrowed from our American friends), then we have Bonfire Night which celebrates the failed attempt to blow up Parliament by Guy Fawkes & finally we remember our fallen soldiers with Remembrance Sunday.

I’d love to know if you share any of these events or how they differ from ours. Let’s share some traditions!

Team 100

As you may know, there is a group of volunteers across the world who visit your posts & leave a supportive comment. They work very hard & need more people to join the team. If you have any parents or colleagues who may like to join, do ask them to comp[lete this short form HERE They do not have to be ‘educationalists’ just someone who enjoys reading great writing!

Showcase

A quick reminder to check the latest showcase on the tab ‘Special Showcase’ at the top of this page.
