Advent day 6
This was a lovely idea for an activity, and earlier on we had clear, cold skies and the promise of a good night's twinkle viewing. But then it clouded over and started to drizzle so that put paid to that. But all was not lost - earlier on I did some stargazing of a different kind as Tall Small stood up in front of the whole of Key Stage 2 to talk about her pet hamster. Each week, one of the children in Years 5 and 6 talks for 10 minutes on a subject of their choice, to help them practice their presentation skills, but usually it's only in front of their class. She did brilliantly - I was proud of her, her teacher was proud of her and more importantly, she was very proud of herself. Hurrah! Confidence boosted, we hope!
