Today was the first day back at school after the October holidays, and Tadpole was very excited about seeing his nursery school chums again after a two-week break. I, on the other hand, was excited for a different reason – I was heading through to work with the Primary 1 for the first time as a volunteer classroom assistant.
Of course, the first day of a new term, everything took longer than usual as the kids were settling back into their daily routines and remembering the rules, but it was a lot of fun. I only had a limited amount of time, as I had to leave at 11.15am, which is when Tadpole gets out of nursery, but I got involved with the children drawing pictures of what they had done during the holidays and copying what the teacher wrote in their books.
It was a lovely morning and I’m looking forward to going back on Wednesday morning, because we’ll be doing drama – hurrah!
