After a week filled with computers, graphs, forms and a class to teach I was so ready for the weekend!
I don’t mind working hard but as you read in my previous blog, some hard work is just not for me. Anyway … I survived and yes, we did have some fun things this week too.
This week was the start of our annual National Week of Children’s Books. It’s not a week but ten days but a week sounds better, I guess. This year’s theme is “Ready, steady … go!!” – sports in children’s books and now we have our school full of all kinds of sporty things. Even our principal was dressed in a sports outfit to officially open the event in our auditorium. It was hilarious!
One of the assignments for our oldest groups is to give a talk about your favorite sport. They were groaning! They have one week to prepare, it only needs to take about five minutes but it sounded like I asked them to write a book about it. As our kids are dealing with learning difficulties I understand it is hard for them but some things are inevitable. LOL!
On Thursday however we had a really fun day as all kids got a lesson in Capoeira, a Brazilian mix between martial arts, acrobatics and dance. They loved it!!
This video is of the teacher, Simon, who gave this lesson at our school.
Today I went for a tour on my bike to take some photos again. It’s been far too long since I did that. The weather was wonderful and I loved being out again.
So, enjoy the start of the Dutch Fall with me …
