The Saturday sesh #8

Week eight has whizzed passed and I’m on serious countdown until half term. However, as always I’m counting my blessings and enjoying the triumphant feeling that the weekend gives a working Mummy.

As always we have read all of your posts from last week, commented and picked our featured bloggers. However, we have decided to add a new rule – you can’t be a featured blogger if you don’t share the badge on your post or site. This is simply good linky etiquette and as always our Teacher brains are sticklers for rules. Click here to see who Hayley has picked or keep reading to see who mine is.

This week it was a no brainer for me – Karen at returning to the love of learning really captured my heart with a topical issue, attendance at school. I have to say I am responsible for whole school attendance at work, I fill out the nasty fine forms and know that attendance and attainment go hand in hand. I also in true hypocrictal style will be filling out a form for my son who has started reception as our school holiday terms don’t match (due to working / living in different counties). What I adored about Karen’s piece which is often missing from media attention is her personal anxiety over the issue. To me it explored what a good Mum and role model she is versus’s the huge financial sacrifice of holidays in term time. Where do you sit on this issue? Personally I feel like the tourism industry has been avoiding this for too long and rather than attacking education we should probably be demanding tour operators to scrap peek / off peek prices that in some cases are absurd. Anyway, Karens post is worth a ponder.
