Dear Bear … (End of term)

How is it the end of term already?

This year has flown by. This time last year we were saying goodbye to your amazing pre-school teachers ready to spend summer together before  you started on your Reception class adventure.

You have graduated from Reception and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and you are now ready for some serious but fun learning, in your next class.

Your Reception Class adventure is now over the next school chapter will be opening after the summer holiday’s. 6 whole weeks of not dashing about and chilling out.

Mummy will be working two day’s a week over the holiday’s but luckily you can come with me, but we will be going out  doing some things with the little baby I look after.

The day’s I am not working we will be having lazy mornings, and fun day’s out which will be a bit more suitable for you and your sister.

I bet you these  6 weeks will go so fast, we will be finding things to do with Dinosaurs as that is what you are learning about next term, we will also be finding some fun things to do with Space, the weather and Woodlands as that is what you will be doing in Year One.

Your year one teacher’s seem amazing you have one teacher Two day’s a week who has been teaching over 10 years and the other three day’s a newly qualified teacher, who used to be a teaching assistant. You will also having a Teaching Assistant too!

I can’t put into words how proud I am of you, you are such a caring,loving, polite and handsome young man. Your teachers say you are a pleasure to have in the classroom and you are helpful and caring too.

I am so excited for your Year one adventure, I hope it is as magical as your Reception adventure was.

Lot’s of Love

Mummy

We LOVE Books!

Who doesn’t love a good book?

I love the fact Bear and Bell are becoming right little book worms! Do you think we have too many book’s?

I love reading too, I can read two-three book’s a month. I read anything from Romance to Crime. Anything has started to take my fancy.

Bear and Bell could ope itn a book shop with the amount of books they have.

We are now starting to get into Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the BFG are my all time Favorites, and I remember watching the films when I was younger. Once I got older the books became even better!

I am so pleased my love of reading has rubbed of on Bell and Bear. I think it’s because I 90% of the time have something to read in my hand bag whether it’s a magazine or a book there is always something to read in the bag.

I prefer a book to a Kindle as much as I think the Kindle is a fab idea and so handy if you are travelling a lot, for me a good book with pages, a small glass of wine, some chocolate and a quite space is always a winner for me over a night out.

Now back to Bell and Bear!

We are currently reading some old school classic’s. By old school classic’s these are books I also read when I was younger.

We have set up a little corner in the living room especially for reading, it is in a little crany we have no idea what to do with!

After meeting with Bear’s new year 1 teacher and getting some leaflets its 100% important to read daily and for 10-15 minutes with your child, We already do this but for a bit longer!

To have space for children to write and practice writing and role play for writing.

Speak about everything and anything! I am currently reading our loud what I am writing.

So we Love reading do you? What is your favorite book?

Why we love living in Kent….

Why we love living in Kent…..

We are 35/40 minutes away from central London, and have direct train to Charing cross, London bridge and Waterloo.

We have the country side right on our doorstep, little villages and of course a small town center which seems to be getting better and better each year I am here.

We have two big supermarkets within 2-10 minutes drive and another on about 30 minutes either way from where we are.

We have hardly any buses, they come every 30-60 minutes.. sometimes I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

We have some lovely schools, where 60% of the schools still only have max 30 children, my son’s class has currently 27 children.

We have a few private schools ! (If only my budget would stretch!!)

We have a few grammar schools too!

More importantly we have a lovely village we live in and my Daughter will be going to a pre-school where my cousin went 18 years ago and the same ladies are there!
