This week I did Year 1 supply in two different schools. The second [yesterday] was covering a teacher unexpectedly absent, with no work prepared. The class had visited the local Sikh Gurdwara in Thursday afternoon, so it was suggested that I might like to spend the morning talking about the trip and getting them to produce a ‘recount’ [that means ‘write a report’ in normal English] It was clear that they were not too sure about what they had seen, but they did know there were ‘5Ks’ [read about it here]
So in the lunch hour, I made a ‘cube-net’, which the Teaching Assistant copied during afternoon registration – and then we all made little 5K cubes [ design, technology, art, craft,maths and RE! They just don’t pay me enough]
The children worked really hard and produced a tower of cubes
That is the 5K of this week
The 50K came on Thursday – driving home from school, my little old blue Matiz [December 2002] actually clocked up 50,000 miles.
I was passing the church at the time – so I stopped and photographed the milometer in front of me, and the new KMFC noticeboard alongside me. [spot our little QR code in the corner]
It seemed quite pleasing to be in this spot as the car reached this stage in its life. I hope it has plenty more miles in it yet. And the 500K?
I was really tired coming home from school so I stopped at a Polish shop, and bought a huge doughnut for 49p.
That has to be about 500 calories – glazed with sugar icing, and candied orange peel, filled with a glossy rich custard… I cut it in half and shared it with Bob. I did so enjoy it with my after-school cuppa.
