I'm Not Dead

Do you know, it's a loooong time since I've seen that film...

Anyway, here I am again, having been chastised for not posting recently (and I don't mean in a cyber way, I mean in a real, told off to my face way - yikes! Good job she has a winning smile!)

So, here's a post especially for SKE.

Boom boom.

However, on reflection, I do have something to say.

18 children in a class is a dream.

Stuff specialist schools and academies, if the government really wants to make a difference to education, limit all class sizes to 20. I'm on top of my marking and record keeping before I have left the building, meaning I can spend evenings thinking about how best to present the next day's lessons or preparing resources or dealing with the co-ordination and management parts of my job that I felt I didn't get to much at all last year.

I must also say thank you to the lovely Lou for the Nice Matters Award:

You don't know how much it means, Lou, thanks so much. I should in turn award it to others, but in terms of niceness, my top vote would go to Lou...

Thinking caps on, chaps...

Listen closely, that's the sound of one head thumping. Baaaad joke baby. The other sound you hear is of pattern book pages flipping while I look for the perfect pattern for the perfectly pinky/purply sock yarn (today children, we'll be looking for ways to overuse the letter 'p')
Have a good week or two!
