Warm woolies, wet wellies,
whooshing whiteness, welcome whistle,
Walking (and running and sliding) in a Winter Wonderland
We used to be allowed out in the snow to build snowmen, throw snowballs, slip and slide and delight in the white blanketed school field and playground. Because I could walk to my schools, school never seemed to close although I do remember some of the school buses from the tiny villages (at senior school) not turning up very occasionally.
Now days when it snows, schools are much more likelier to close due to lack of teachers and pupils making it in - probably because so many more live further away. Certainly on snowy days, my children and I would listen to the morning radio to hear the list of school closures and most of the time they'd be wishing their ones would be closed!!
Do you remember your winter school days? Did you clip your welly boots together with a peg? Did your teachers join in the fun? Or if you live in a hot country that doesn't have snow, do schools close if it gets too hot and at what temperature does that happen? Leave a message below because I sure would like to know :)
