Ros Bayley tells the story of 'Holey Roley' using puppets and props. Ros Bayley is an educational consultant and trainer specialising in early years.
I recently heard that Ros Bayley died and I felt a deep sense of loss and also an immense appreciation to her for all that she contributed to us in early years; for her joy, fun, intelligence and wisdom. I want to offer my condolences to all who knew and loved Ros especially to her family.
An e-mail from today reminded me that this draft post has been languishing in my “to do” pile for some time (ever since the sad passing of the great Ros Bayley, in fact).
