End of term fun

Rosie broke up for Easter today. (Charlie had an inset day, so he broke up yesterday and was pretty smug to have the day off when Rosie had to go into school. He's going to be a bit less smug when he realises that she's got an inset day at the END of the hols, so he's going back to school a day before her!)
She's had a busy time at school lately - lots of dressing up days and fun things to do. 
We had her parents' evening this week too - she's doing brilliantly across the board and we're so proud of her. Her teacher says she's well ahead of where she should be in maths, reading, writing... everything really! She also said she's astonishingly mature and perceptive for a five-year-old. Apparently she behaves really well and is a big help in the classroom. Pretty much a perfect report really. Couldn't ask for more from our little Rosie-girl. 
She's been very excited because they've had eggs in their classroom in an incubator, and they've hatched over the past couple of weeks, so now they've got lots of cheeping chicks in a box to fuss over.  Rose is quite the animal fan - she's still dotty about her hamster, Sunny. The school sent home the pic of her holding one of the chicks in class. I love it when we get pics from school - they use an app too, called SeeSaw, which means they can ping us photos during the school day so we can see what they're up to!
They ran an Easter colouring competition this week, and Rosie made a fab job of her picture. She was over the moon today when the headmistress announced in assembly that her picture was one of the winners. She was so excited - I think she fancies entering a few more competitions now!
They had a little Easter bonnet parade at the end of the day today, so they all marched around the playground in their hats. I love how pleased she is when she spots me at school events - I helped out at the Mother's Day shop at school last month, and she was tickled pink to have HER mum there during the school day. :-)
More to the point, I was pretty chuffed that I was able to recycle the same Easter bonnet she had for both years at Playschool! I'd kept it stashed carefully at the back of her wardrobe so I didn't have to faff around making a new one. It only just fitted, but she was quite happy to have it balanced a bit precariously on top of her plaits!
So that's what Rosie's been up to - we've got a few fun things planned for the Easter hols, so watch this space...
