A word from Mrs Murphy
One thing is for sure, the children are our hope for the future so it is of course all the more encouraging and heart-warming to read their insightful words. In the absence of being able to stage our annual exhibition, please do enjoy the compilation of our projects below.
We enjoyed a very interesting presentation from Dr Kathy Weston at one of last year’s HPPPA Holistic Parent Talks – she advises on all manner of issues around parenting. Having recently read an interesting article on the importance of sleep, I would thoroughly recommend signing up to her weekly blog. Her wise words are definitely worth a read, or alternatively you can listen to her interviewing a wide range of experts in various field in her podcasts – an optometrist, an educational psychologist and an occupational therapist to name but a few.
This half term really does have to take the record as the fastest yet, I wish you all a very safe and restful half term break, recharging the batteries ready for the second half of term and all that this will bring as we romp towards December!
Have a wonderful break.
