Ooops - I seem to have missed two days. Things have been very hectic down here. Tuesday evening I went to bed incredibly early and slept soundly through and last night I was out with colleagues who live locally. We wnt to the local pub for a meal and a good natter and had a super time. Of course, I'm shattered now, but it was worth it!
Life plods on! Yesterday we were finishing entering all the levels into Tracker. Such a boring task! And we have the curriculum wheels to highlight. A long time ago we decided tick-listing was a total and utter waste of time. After all, for example, who really cares if a child is level 2 or level 3 in RE and does it matter two hoots anyway? So what did we do a couple of years ago but start highlighting a curriculum wheel instead. Tick-listing in another guise , that's all it is, and what an utter waste of time, effort and money!!
At the end of school the writing SATs were returned. However, as the head and deputy were both absent, they can't be opened. Frustrating for the teachers concerned.
And today? Well, the usual. Phonics, maths (number bonds), ICT in the computer suite and then games in the afternoon. Hopefully, a nice day!
Oh - and more curriculum wheel highlighting (yawn)!
