You'll be pleased to hear that the 8 year old boy Puddlecote's class have finished reading Journey to Jo'burg.
They are now cracking on with The Peacock Garden.
Set in 1947 when India was partitioned, this is the story of Zuni, a young Muslim girl, whose family is caught up in the upheaval. Rather than fleeing Pakistan, as many other Muslim families did, Zuni's family seek refuge in the gardens of a local mosque.In other news, he is almost fully conversant with his times tables thanks to the after-school tutor I pay.
No such nonsense from the girl Puddlecote's school. They had a Big Green Tidy Up today ... or litter-picking, to you and me.
I think the caretaker had a day off.
And no, I am NOT making this shit up.
