Where did the holidays go?

The first day back in September is such a special day for teachers and children alike –Β it is a day when we can look back to the freedom of the holidays and look forward to a brilliant year ahead: I was greeted with ‘Happy New Year’ by a member of staff this morning, and I know what they meant.

I had a fabulous holiday in Norfolk with my boys; the weather was great and we were on the beach every day, almost up to sunset. We also went camping…when it rained all night, and I went to London with Stella to see a play in the Globe Theatre.

What did you get up to? What was the best part of the holidays for you…holidays can never be as much fun as school, but they give us some happy memories – please share them.

  16. I went to Greece for 2 weeks. There were about 50 of us altogether, for my cousin’s wedding. The wedding was on the beach. I was a bridesmaid. The day after we got home it was my birthday and I got a new bike. Then last weekend my big sister got married and I was a bridesmaid again. I really liked it. I had a great summer. The only bad part was when I sprained my ankle and could not walk on it for a week.

  17. Hi Mr Brian

    I went to my Nanan’s caravan over the holidays. On the day that my mummy came we went a funfair and it was really exciting because there were rides called cliffhanger and sizzler. I went on both and it was really scary but fun at the same time.
