I spent the first part of this morning taking the maggots to school, and attending a "Six Weeks In" session for Maggot 2's reception class parents. And much fun it was too. A few "games" to break the ice, and give us parents some of the key messages about partnership. The presenter was an amazing woman, who I just happened to be married to. She does this as part of her job, but for another district, so as a Parent Governor she gives her time for free to run a similar session for the Reception year. What a woman.
We then went to see our maggots in their native classroom habitat, and that was fine until we had to leave, when Maggot 2 had one of his world-famous paddies, and had to be gently restrained so we could beat a hasty retreat. Having been the restrainer on more than one occasion, I know it does not last long, and in fact his teacher, the fabulous Mrs G, has just rung and all is well with the little one.
