Courtney suggested that I should write a blog about what we have been doing in the summer holidays – what a good idea! My summer holiday has been quiet. I have come into school every week to sign papers and to see how the building work has been going on – and I am very excited about the start of the new term. Stella and I have been playing lots of tennis every day – and she has been in a few tournaments. This summer she has won 13 games and only lost 5 so I am well-pleased. Eve has read lots of books and been hanging out with her friends. We have also had lots of sleepovers – rather, the girls have. I went to Straford upon Avon for the weekend with the girls and Tracy and we watched a play – it was fab. Next summer, all the Y6 are visiting Stratford to see the house where Shakespeare lived as a child and we will all see a play! So what have you all been doing? Some people have sent in photos – remember that everyone who sends in a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org will be entered in the draw for one of five £20 Meadowhall vouchers.
