#MySundayPhoto - The School Play

Like I'm sure so many people this week has been all about school plays. Aly's play was set around the birth of the new baby King. 'Let's go see the new baby King' That was Aly's line in the play...one of only a few Year 1's who had a line as her class performed with the Year 2s and they had the lines while the Year 1a had the dancing parts. This photo was taken after her performance which she carried out very well and we were very proud of her


Please come and link up a photo with or without words.

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas

#MySundayPhoto - Captain

This week's #MySundayPhoto is from last Sunday where we have started talking Aly to football and she has been enjoying it lots. She is growing in confidence and it's fresh air and gets her some exercise. Last week was the last one before the New Year and at the end they roped the parents in to play a match against the children which all the children enjoyed trying to beat their parents.

At the end of the training each week they give the captain's armband to one player from the under 7s and one player over 7 who is the player of the day and for the first time Aly was awarded the under 7s. She was so excited and I was very very proud of her as you can see she puts in the effort.

Here she is with the armband.


I hope everyone is getting in the Christmas spirit. Please come and link up a photo with or without words.

Aly's First Football Training

Aly loves everything, well pretty much everything...she’s not a fan of insects, sweets, fizzy drinks and Mia being upset. Ok it’s quite a random list but generally if it’s good for her she likes it fruit, vegetables and fresh air are all good in her books.

Part of this is her also enjoying sports from riding her bike to swimming but this past weekend she started a new sport...football.

This of course has pleased me no end. She seemed to be the one who suggested it and she went along with one of her friends and Mummy went along too. I shall be going next weekend to see if I need to inform the National coaches that we have a new star on our hands.

This was her first time going but she joined in with everything and came back saying she loved it and really really enjoyed it. When she was home she found her Christmas list to Santa and added football tops, football shoes and football shorts to it. All this is ok unless she asked for a Man Utd shirt.

She told me all about it and said she almost scored a goal, so she’s looking forward to next week even if her legs did ache a little on Monday morning.

#SocialPix - 24th October

It's almost the weekend...anything fun planned? This week's photo is of a sticker that Aly got on her last day of term.

#SocialPix will be running from Thursday evening until Sunday evening, every weekend to give people the chance to share their favourite image(s) of the week from their Social Media channels and blogs. And that’s images – it doesn’t have to be a photo…

Simply pop to the #SocialPix linky over here on OneDad3Girls to add the url of your favourite image. The images you link up do not have to be your own, simply an image that you have seen , shared or loved in the past week (it doesn’t matter how long ago the image itself was taken)


#MagicMoments - The First School Year

It's happened, it's finally happened...the end of Aly's first year at Primary School. With the end of the year approaching along with it came Aly's first full year report which I'll get to in a minute.


This is how little Aly looked on her first day way back in September. When she started she was already pretty good with numbers, colours, words and a bit of reading but very little on spelling.

The school she does to gives them a reading book everyday which we always make the point of listening to her read and over the course of the year her reading has completely changed and she's now reading books with 100 or so words. Her spelling is amazing for someone that has only completed one year at school. She can now spell all of the class friends, and pretty much any other words she decides to add to her stories.


Aly's school report was everything a parent could ask for and shows what an amazing girl she is developing into. Below is a few quotes from the report.

Aly is such a lovely girl, she has been a delight to have in our class this year

Aly has made excellent progress in all areas of the curriculum and with fantastic support from home she has become an amazing reader

Aly's favourite child initated activity is to design and make lego models. She knows exactly what she wants to achieve...the boys are often in awe of her constructions.

Aly is at all times polite and well behaved, she looks after her friends and is a wonderful help to her teachers.

We couldn't be prouder of her and hope she makes the same progress in the next year.
