Bradley was back at school this week just in time for his exams which he remarked were very easy. As for myself we have been holding a reading competition with the primary children. Each day they take a book home from the library and the next day we split into mixed year groups, the children then read some of their chosen book and then tell us about the story and answer questions. Then on Thursday the reading was put on hold as we held our annual sports day. I had been asked to record all the scores along with Aisha. The first event was a group relay event with each year running a short distance around the roads outside the school. We then had a 50mtr and 100mtr race before going back into the school to continue with other events. We had events such as lime and spoon, matching words and pictures, potato and bucket race, sorting colours, threading beads, filling water bottles, one legged race and tug of war including a teacher tug of war game. As usual as we neared the end there were some heated debates and questioning over the scores however the overall winners were the yellow house. As last year it was a very enjoyable day with good team spirit from all involved. On Friday I had to take Abigail and Bradley into school with me as they had been given the day off after completing a week of exams. On arrival I was told that Aja the office accountant had died yesterday, apparently she suffered with arthritis. The morning was spent writing a short poem from the children to be placed in the local paper. Aja was a Muslim so the burial was to take place at 2 o’clock that day so the teachers were waiting for the children to be picked up so they could go and pay their respects at the family compound.
