This is the last week of school for me & my class are getting ready to move onto 'big school', the majority are just transferring to P.1 within the same school but a couple are moving on to completely different schools.
In the last few weeks, it is a bittersweet time for me as their teacher, they are at their most settled, we are all totally comfortable with each other & their play is at a great level. Each day as I sit & observe them interacting with each other & using every inch of the playground, it is a little sad to think that they are almost ready to move on & become another teacher's class.
This week we had a couple of parties for those who are 5 in the summer & have 3 more in the last week. We went on a trip to Sperrinview to their wonderful sensory garden & many of the parents joined us. They enjoyed seeing where their children had played all year & it was lovely to see the children & parents & grandparents spread all over this amazing space.
We have our final trip of the year to An Creagán on Wednesday & then Graduation on Friday & that's another school year over. I can't believe this is my 13th end of year celebrations at Windmill.

Thanks again to all those who took the time to link up an outdoor post in the last OPP, the one I am featuring this time is from Kids in the Garden - they had a fab afternoon where their street was closed off to traffic & the familes came out to play & socialise together. This was part of a project called The Big Lunch organised by The Eden project. I just love this pictures of the car free street covered with chalk drawings.
