Little Elms successfully complete their first year!

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th July 2016 | Early Years

For My final blog of the school year, I thought I would finish with a poem by an unknown author. This is something I hear from parents all the time - "My son always says he did nothing today."
I hope you enjoy the poem but more importantly your Summer Holidays!

 

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.

- Mrs. Skinner
