The day has finally arrived when the work has begun on rebuilding our leaky administration block. I am amazed how quickly a building can be torn apart. Impeccable timing with school beginning this week but hey…it is being done and we are every appreciative of that. Plenty of scope for teaching opportunities as I am sure many of the children will be curious to see what is happening and will watch with interest. No doubt teachers will make the most of this opportunity to feed in new vocabulary and elicit some great descriptive passages from and with the children. Taking these teachable moments has always been one of the joys of teaching but had become a bit of a guilty pleasure for some teachers as the pressure to accelerate progress has been applied more and more.
