Here is Izzy in her (quickly ordered from e-bay) ladybird costume:
Parents were allowed to go and watch a replay on Tuesday morning. Two colleagues kindly offered to look after my form and my first class for five minutes so that I could go.
It was delightful. The explorers walked through the garden with their magnifying glasses. The flowers said their bit and then stepped aside to reveal the insects. Each insect told us something about themselves.
Izzy said her part then sat down and beamed at me. I gave her the 'thumbs up'.
That's when I saw one of my colleagues at the side of the hall, doubled up laughing at me and my thumbs.
Well, I was a parent!
