We have had some big anxiety attacks and tough times recently so it’s nice to have a stress free post.
“Dad I shared a desk with a ladybird today. He watched a bit of history with me.”
It’s always good to get close to nature. Especially when you are at school.
“I wish all school days could be this good”
The school has a system that everyday a pupil is taken out of classes and assigned to school reception. Basically for the day they deliver messages, photocopy stuff and do admin tasks. It’s supposed to broaden their horizons. Today was our son’s turn. It certainly broadened his.
“Basically every so often I would deliver a message to a teacher. It was funny when the receptionist asked me to deliver a message to a teacher and the teacher was stood at reception. I delivered it without moving. Then I had to deliver a message about a kid who couldn’t come in today as he had come down with flu – he said he was doing this yesterday as he hated French.”
“Greta would be very annoyed with me. Every time I used the photocopier I kept getting the paper upside down. Wasted so many sheets. I did get a great copy of my hand”
You can’t believe how relieved I was when he said hand….
So what happened when you had no work to do.
“I went to see the teachers and they just sent me back to reception. Finally one teacher told me to go to the library and get a book to read. Ha ha he doesn’t know I’m dyslexic. So I improvised”
Did it involve your iPad and games.
“Not entirely. Yes I played some very educational games like Space Invaders and Sonic. But I also watched a historical thing about how bad the British Empire was and how the navy went after Pirates.”
So you watched Pirates of the Caribbean.
“Yes. What a top day.”
