September brought with it
a new term and a new school year.
For those of you who don't know
me well, I am a Teaching assistant in
a primary school.
I love my job.
I've had many in the past,
usually 2 at the same time so
I could feed the horses I used to own!
But none have been as perfect as this one.
Yes it has it's tough moments,
VERY tough moments!
Working with children who have
major behaviour problems can
be trying at the best of times but
I'm part of a fantastic team and we
seem to have it down to a fine art
and provide our pupils with
a safe and creative learning enviroment!
What I am hoping to get round to here is my
...and hopefully linking my
love for Dahl to my last post
Are you still with me ?
(Bear with me...)
Well I have a small,
run-down, old shed.
For which, I asked in my last post,
ideas on how to paint it.
Now Roald had a shed too...
His writing shed.
I would LOVE this!
Although it's doubtful I could create
fantastic creations like Roald in my shed,
one can dream.
He also had another kind of shed...
Beautiful isn't it?!
This really is in the garden where he lived,
and became the inspiration for him
'Danny Champion of the World'
I shall have to make do with
keeping the gardening tools and camping gear
...and use his wonderful imagination
to inspire my class with displays
thank you for all your ideas
on how to paint it...
...if I get time to paint it that is!
I think a shade of yellow may be in order,
like Roald's door.
With a bit of a Dahl theme going on
hopefully I will be able to inspire my own
children to be creative writers,
or just to be my very own little
'Champions of the world.'
