Blog Number 39: cramming them all in before the End of the year!

Working in a school has its advantages. There are many hidden talents and plenty of great opportunities to learn new things –

Visit the Hindu Temple in Neasden

It was an honour to be welcomed into this beautiful and sacred building on a visit with our Y4 class.

The Temple is a sight to behold and the story of how each individual piece was carefully transported from far off places around the world and assembled together like a complex version of a jigsaw is incredible. This trip to North West London is well worth making.

Go on a cake decorating course

I can now make mince pies courtesy of our school chef, Joe, who was trained at the Ritz. We have hidden talents at our school. It’s not quite a ‘cake decorating course’ but it’s close enough – well I had to stick the stars on top!

Learn a magic trick

Little did I know that my colleague Margaret is a budding ‘Paula Daniels’. She taught me a trick with a piece of string, which I performed for the rest of the staff on our Christmas night out. Apart from the string becoming entangled in my braces, it was worthy of a standing ovation. Where the view that teachers are nerdy individuals who don’t know how to enjoy themselves came from I’ll never know!
