With the difficult balance of vaccination coupled with sensible social distancing and appropriate mask-wearing, Simon had his first visit to a school yesterday in a very long time.
Simon visited Ballard School in New Milton, on the southern edge of the New Forest. Originally booked as a World Book Day visit, this was postponed, albeit slightly, to fit in with current Government guidelines regarding lockdown and school opening. It proved to be a brilliant day, and far removed from the recent Zoom sessions that have had to take the place of face-to-face sessions.
Simon read stories to Nursery and Kindergarten, then conducted creature creation drawing workshops with Year R and Years 1 and 2. Lots of excited, engaged faces, enjoying both the stories and the live drawing.
