Father’s Friday 2016

After another superb day in school, I wanted to summarise in a blog post  just what fun we had on Father’s Friday. As in previous years, dads, grandads and significant male members of the family were invited into school for as little or as much as they wanted to take part in and enjoy a day of learning. Once again, we were thrilled to see people turn up in such huge numbers, which made the day so special.

Beginning with our weekly celebration assembly, many dads had decided to come in for an early start and then stay on. With so much to celebrate, the day was off to a good start and then everyone filtered back to class for the beginning of lessons. From phonics to rounders, music and singing to reading and arithmetic tests, our dads took part in everything with a smile and a wonderful attitude and atmosphere, immersing themselves in everything that the day had to offer. Even at playtime and lunchtime, it was a joy to walk the grounds and to see everyone playing together on the field.

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the time in their busy schedules to be able to come to school and join us today; we loved having you and it was a pleasure to work with you for the day.

Here are some photos of our day and we managed to catch up with some dads for their reaction to Father’s Friday too. Have a great weekend everyone!

Father’s Friday

What a brilliant day we have had in school today! So many dads and special people in the children’s lives have given up some or even all of their day to spend time with us in school. Everyone took a full part and became fully immersed in the learning, fun and excitement that took place and the school was buzzing from the beginning of assembly this morning to the end of school as I wandered around the playground. Thank you to all those who came and made our day, it was great to see you and watch you learn, play and have fun. Here are some snapshots of this year’s Father’s Friday, the children telling us what they liked about today in their own words and Thistle class’ composition of the Hungry Caterpillar, conducted by dads! Enjoy…

Father’s Friday

Today we welcomed our dads and significant men in the children’s lives into school for the day and what a day we have had! Football on the field, phonics and writing in the classroom, singing in assembly – the dads took part in everything and seemed to have a really good time. It was so good to see so many people here – the hall was packed for celebration assembly and the classrooms have been buzzing all day. On such a beautiful, sunny day, this was definitely a day to remember. Here are a few photos for the mums who weren’t here…
