I feel like I have been a bit MIA lately. First I would like to say welcome to my newest followers I hope you enjoy coming on my blogging journey with me. Life has been busy lately I have had to start looking for a new job as my contract ends this year at my current school, I have to tell you that I am terribly sad to leave this school. As well as that I am in the middle of writing reports like many others around the country.
a day near and dear to my heart as many of you may know my husband is in the military and has had to deploy overseas on more than one occasion. This year I feel an even closer link to this special day because earlier in the year I had the opportunity to find my Great Grandfathers World War 1 grave in Villers Brettenoux in France. It was a very moving experience to realise that to date I have been the only family member that has ever visited his grave and most likely the only family member who will get that opportunity. I also visited the battle ground where he was received the wounds that later proved fatal.

Tomorrow my class will be viewing these photos and talking about why we have Remembrance Day, we make poppies and collate them into a class wreath for display. My students also will do some writing about why we remember our fallen soldiers. I also like to take in some photos of my husband for them to view, I think it is important for them to know that we still have soldiers on the front line and serving today.
