It's difficult to know where to start this blog but last August I had a call asking me if I would like to do some work for Christchurch Juniors. As I had worked in school before I immediately said yes. It didn't need thinking about. Christchurch is in my bones, my second family if you like (yes I know it sounds corny) so I was excited to start in Year 4 in September. As always with a new class it takes time to get used to each others ways but with mutual respect on all our sides we have come together very nicely indeed.
Fast forward to Easter 2020 and Mrs Stroudly is due to return to work and will now do so. Sadly for me, this means I must now leave Christchurch until such a time when I am needed again, so tomorrow is my last day. When I finish my turn tomorrow everything that belongs to the school will be returned and I don't know when I will be back, but be assured should I be asked, I will be back.
I have enjoyed teaching my Year 4s, they are the only class who have truly made me cry (20.3.20) by their kind thoughts and deeds. They are a credit to yourselves and the amazing staff that make up Christchurch. I will miss them dearly but I will be leaving them in the more than capable hands of Mrs Stroudly and Miss Pearce who, together with continue to oversea their education. Be that online at present or when the day comes when they can return to school.
Take care of yourselves as much as you take care of the children, remember that it will pass and if you can't bear to look into the future, just focus on the now.
My love to everyone.
