November Round-Up

Monthly Round-Up for November November feels like it has passed in the blink of an eye! It has, if possible, been even busier than October. We have been viewing houses, making offers, and having our hopes both raised and dashed. In school, we have had parent-teacher evenings and been preparing for one of my favourite…

October Round-Up

Monthly Round-Up for October October has been an absolute whirlwind, so much so that I nearly named this post ‘September’ Round-Up. Where has this month gone?! We’ve had a busy half-term at school, with my class producing their own anthology of re-imagined fairytales which I am showing off to everyone * proud teacher* In personal…

February Round-Up
