Farewell to all our leavers!

A sad day for many at Merrydays Montessori. We said goodbye to 27 children who are starting at their new schools in September and Mrs Judith Burge who retired after 19 years of teaching Montessori. We wish each and everyone of them good luck and shall miss them all!

“For all your patience, day by day,
For every tear you’ve wiped away.
For little hands you gently hold,
and all the stories you have told.

For your consoling, tender heart,
and all the wisdom you impart.
For silly songs and quiet times,
For peaceful naps and nursery rhymes.

For teaching children how to share,
For being kind and being fair.
For every shoe that you have tied,
and thoughtful words that install pride.

For all the sweet things that you do,
To help the children all year through.
For being there in place of me,
I’m so grateful and will always be.

A thank you from Rebecca Mead for Mrs Burge and all the other teachers.”

 

Sports Day was Great Fun!‏

“Today was Sports Day! There were lots of activities: the sack race, throwing a bean bag into a hoop, throwing a bean bag into a box, best action, transferring water into a bucket and running with a sand bag. There were 6 teams: circles, Ben was their team captain, Amanda was the leader of the stars, squares of which I was team captain, ovals, George and Ethan were their captains, Daisy and Inika were the octagon team captains and Shubham and Alexander were captains of the pentagons.

In the second round, the Dads, Mums and teachers had a running race and a tug of war which was hilarious. After,  we all had a picnic which was yummy.
Ben’s team came first, but Mrs Everley said we were all winners. We all got a medal for participating. Smiling face with smiling eyes
