Little Elms Blog: A wonderful year

What a wonderful year we have had in Little Elms. We have all learnt so much and had a lot of fun along the way, however parents often tell me "My son says he did nothing today." I thought it would be fitting to share this poem by an unknown author, which I hope you enjoy.

Wishing all our Little Elms and their families a restful Summer Holiday and all the best for the future.

- Mrs Skinner

I Did Nothing Today

When children come home at the end of the day,

The question they’re asked as they run out to play

Is “Tell me what did you do today?"

And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay.

“Nothing, I did nothing today!”

 Perhaps “Nothing” means that I read a book,

Or…with a teacher I got to cook.

Maybe I painted a picture of blue,

Or heard a story of a mouse that flew.

Maybe I wrote in my journal myself,

Or found a great book on the library shelf.

Maybe I helped a friend today,

Or went to my favourite area alone,

Maybe today was the very first time

That my scissors followed a very straight line,

Maybe I sang a song right to the end,

Or worked with a special brand new friend.

When you’re three, four or five your heart has wings

And “Nothing” means so many things.
