It is done!!!!

Beth was responsible for opening the assembly and the children went on to compare their time at Panshanger with what they might be in the future. Beth took the role of Coral's mum. Coral was the only child in the nursery who refused to go home!! It was very emotional as I had expected, its the end of an era. The sketches were funny and not sad so that really helped everyone. Once we got back to the class room the flood gates opened and all the children were in tears and a fair few of us were as well. In the end Tom and I decided that we needed to go and we offered Beth a medicinal McDonalds by way of a bribe. That did the trick and we made our exit.
I just wish our holidays were starting this week. When we got home from school our postman had just been and had left us a package containing our holiday folder and tickets, so we have that to look forward to. Two weeks today!!!!

WOW, what a great way to celebrate past memories before actually saying goodbyes.

Aaaaahhhhhhh, the Class 6 leaving assembly can be tough. We were a little tearful at our school watching the children go . . . and that was the staff!
