Word Of The Week – Events

This week has been full of school events. Thankfully my friend sent me a message on Sunday night listing what we needed for the different days. It has been a mix of school uniform, non-uniform and PE kits.


Monday was Little E’s sports day. This meant wearing her PE kit to school. It was also needed for Wednesday which is her normal PE day and for today as they are doing a sponsored run. Just like many other schools, parents could not attend sports day. I must admit as much as I would love to watch Little E take part. There was mum guilt in the morning when she said she wished I could watch. I was happy not to have to be outside for any length of time battling my hayfever.

There were no events on Tuesday meaning it was a normal school uniform day. Apart from Ethan’s normal after-school club that was a pretty easy day for us to remember.

On Thursday Little E had a school trip. She has been very lucky as this was the second school trip for them this term. This week they had an invitation to visit a local garden. As Little E loves all things gardens and growing she was in her element. She was able to go into school in non-uniform and we had to remember to give Little E a packed lunch.

Ethan is also having his own fair share of events as we come to the end of the school year. This week hasn’t been as manic for him as it has for Little E. Things are paced out more at his school. Ethan did have his class photos taken this week and today they are celebrating Rainbow day. A non-uniform day and the chance to dress up in colourful clothes. I’m sure there will be more events and the school winds down for the summer break. Let’s just hope the weeks aren’t quite so busy at this one.

  1. It does sound like a busy week at school. I do love this time of year where there is a lot going on but it is hard to rememeber everything.
    My girl has her sports day next week, it was rained off last week and I am gutted we can’t go and watch. I thought my days of watching sports days had gone when she left primary school but her secondary school used to let the parents watch until Covid happened.

  2. aww I’m glad your little ones got to take part in some school events, even if you were not allowed to attend, at least you know the schools are trying to make the final weeks fun. The kid’s deserve it. My Little Man has had his fun week cancelled next week thanks to Covid isolations, but he will be doing a fun run on Friday and they will have a party the week after (in his bubble) My daughter is off self-isolating until next Friday. The week after she does have a camping trip planned so I hope that goes ahead.

  3. I hope Little E enjoyed her week. There always seems to be at least one week when school packs all the fun and day trips in. We had ours a couple of weeks ago. It was fun, but tricky to keep track of the what they need when. Especially as it changes. I hope she enjoyed the garden centre. I think Ethan’s rainbow day sounds fun. #wotw

  4. Rainbow Day sounds so cool! That being said, I really hope Ethan’s last weeks of school won’t be as hectic as Little E’s. I do feel you on the Mom guilt about not being able to attend Little E’s sports day, but it’s okay. #WotW

  5. Trying to keep track of what children need to wear for school particularly with events going on is hard work sometimes! We had sports day last week too. It is shame that parents haven’t been able to watch although I can imagine it isn’t a fun experience with hayfever to deal with. Glad Little E got to enjoy another school trip and hope Ethan enjoyed Rainbow Day. #WotW
