It is nearly the second payday of the year. Five more weeks at school until Easter. Pancake Day on Tuesday. 11weeks until my niece gets married which means 11 weeks to lose about three stone!!!! I did an eye roll then.
This year is going so fast. I think it's because I am old.
Not really had time to be in Blogland lately. I have been reading and commenting sporadically on all my favourite blogs. I've not really anything to show n tell either.
We just finished a great History week at school. I went on two trips. One was cut short by Doris, she'd caused the river to rise and flood the ruins we were supposed to be looking at! The children had a great week though. Back to normal maths and English this week. Our school decided that we were not going to cram the children's days with SATs lessons and nothing else. I know a child who goes to a different school - graded outstanding with top notch league table results - who does not want to go to school and their parents are disgusted at the level of pressure they are applying already for the tests. No History week for them! No ofsted visits either!!!
Some of the children THRIVE on the challenge the SATs bring ( I would have been one of them ) but not the children I'm employed to work with. I'm boring myself now, year after year on this blog I go on n on about it! Maybe a career change is needed. I'd really love a career in lottery winning!
Gotta go get ready
Lots of love
