Day One -Miércoles/Wednesday Continued

I arrived safely in Barcelona late this afternnon after a stress free flight. A one hour bus ride later and we were in the city centre. I am staying in the University residence which is right next to the beach. It's really warm and the sun is shining! We walked around the local area this afternoon and shortly I will be heading out for some dinner. I'm looking forward to starting at Barcelona University in the morning.

Day One -Miércoles/Wednesday

I was up very early this morning with excitement about my trip. My bags are all packed and filled with all your lovely work, for me to share with the children at Els Pins School. I've even found room for Barnaby Bear. I'll try to make sure that I keep this blog updated with news and pictures regularly, whenever I can get internet access. Keep watching!

A visit from the Lord Mayor!

This morning we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Lord Mayor. She came to school to present us with our International School Award and Quality Mark 4. Key Stage One children took part in a special assembly where children for Year One and Two performed a traditional English Ceildh Dance and sang a Spanish song.

Run, run as fast as you can!

On 23rd October Mrs Edwards will be running the Birmingham Half Marathon in aid of Bliss, the Premature baby organization.  Training is almost complete and the big day is fast approaching. 
I am running on behalf of 'Team Tom'. This is a group of people running in memory of a little boy, born at 25 weeks old. Unfortunately little Tom died at 2 months old but his twin brother Charlie is now a happy and healthy 5 year old thanks to the care and expertise provided by many Bliss doctors and nurses. Bliss support babies that are born too small, too soon, or too sick. The special care baby charity, provides vital support and care to premature and sick babies across the UK. They offer guidance and information at a critical time in families' lives and fund ground-breaking research and campaign for babies to receive the best possible level of care regardless of when and where they are born.
I am trying to raise as much money as I can to help support Bliss and will be leaving a donation tin in the both the Acorns and Oaks reception areas. Alternatively you can donate at I would be really grateful for any contributions to this collection and for your support and encouragement to help get me around all 13 miles!
Many Thanks
