Hooray for Wednesday!

Today was the LAST day of school and I now have the (almost) 6 weeks of the summer holidays to look forward to! I have a few minutes before my Dad is picking me up to take me out to the riverboat shuffle (our annual end of school trip up and down part of the River Thames) and thought I would link up quickly for Wordless Wednesday - Thank You Christina at Sugar and Spice!

I have this picture today:

(You can see I snapped it as part of the scavenger hunt - someone in costume)

A magician was booked to perform for the children who had 100% attendance over the WHOLE school year. Attendance figures are really important at our school and we have various things in place to try to encourage good attendance. Last year there was a circus skills workshop (I wowed everyone with my plate spinning skills!).

Looking ahead to next year - do you have any tips on what more we can do to encourage good attendance at school throughout the year. Do you do anything to promote this at your school?

I'm off to cruise down the Thames now!

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. I don't have any suggestions since I haven't started actually teaching yet ;) But I love that your school had a magician come! That sounds like so much fun for the kiddos!
