A Bit of a Stomp…………….Maybe Not!!!

jby0063lWell I’ve finally thawed out – I think it was about 3 this morning before the fluffy socks came off. Still I won’t be getting that cold again, I’ve got thermal socks and gloves for the next time I head out on the bike -I might even put them on when we play hockey next week. Thankfully it was indoor PE today, though I’ve got to say the dodgy heating in the hall meant it could have been a balaclava moment. In fact never mind the temperature I could have done with the balaclava to drown out the noise. Doing a stomp with year 2 seemed like such a good idea at the time…….

Actually, it’s been loads of fun. I got the idea from another school who were appearing at the ‘Royal Albert Hall’ for the Schools Prom at the same time as us (ahem) Yep I can’t sing for toffee but my claim to fame is singing live there- thankfully there was another 200 in the choir to drown me out  – I’ve appeared at Sheffield Arena as well and I was once in Hello Dolly…… Sorry I’m waffling – back to the stomp. So this school used things like bike wheels, pans, broom handles and their hands and feet to make music – it was amazing. So with part of this terms creative curriculum being about rhythm and beat I thought I’d give it a go. 

To anybody stood outside the school hall it probably sounds like an awful row but in reality – with the help of we will rock you – we are stomping. We may not have the bike tyres and broom handles but we’ve got home-made shakers, coffee tins and plastic bin lids and after only 3 weeks they are getting the hang of it. Not such a bad idea after all. The Methodist School Stomp – coming to a stage near you soon………………….

Stomping through to Saturday

Big weekend ahead

Bring it on

Purple Napkins and Proud Parents……………

So firstly apologies for another short blog but with the end of term and Prom in sight I’m rushed off my feet, and the  lack of time wasn’t helped by my hunt for purple napkins – sorted now- I hope. Anyway come Friday I have six weeks of freedom to look forward to. Well as much freedom as having a twelve-year-old who loves outdoor activities allows- not much!!

Still I’m extremely proud of my twelve-year-old son having come home with a glowing school report last week today he came home with an envelope full of certificates. But amongst the ones for effort, achievement and attainment(!!) was one for ‘Outstanding Respect’ throughout the school year.Proud parents – not half!

School Prom Tomorrow

Posh frock and tiara at the ready

Bring it on
