What a decent few days!
Friday was a quality day. Taught a couple of nice lessons, including a class I hadn't met before. A top set year 9, and it was my first experience of a top set at Myton. Pleasure! Courteous, intelligent, polite, inquisitive. Must be boring to teach that all the time. Year 12s are going nicely with the year 13 stuff I am teaching them (medical imaging), and overall a good day. I was also one of 5 members of staff in the science department (out of more than 20) to work a 5 day working week. Still yet to have a day off for anything other than GTP commitments which I had to have off. Illness yet to strike!
I did leave my phone in the classroom I taught in the final lesson Friday, which was discovered by another teacher. She then rang a few people to let them know I didn't have my phone, including wifey. Wifey was a little perturbed a woman was speaking on my phone to her! :-)
Year 11 prom was class, and it was a really good night all round despite the weather. And string in the beef! Will possibly be the last time I see a lot of my form ever again, which is a little sad, and I guess it is something I will have to get used to as students come and go. but 11M and 11Y will always be my first form groups, and I only have fond memories!
And from the prom and getting in at 2am, to a majestic performance on the golf course yesterday at Brocton Hall. Must win match for North Warwickshire GC in the West Mids scratch league, and we pulled it off 4.5-3.5, and I am not going to lie, I played pretty mint. And I love that!
Learnin walks from Leadership Team start in science this week, any lesson, any time, so busy writing lesson plans to make myself look organised! 2 of my three lessons tomorrow are controlled assessments (in a way), so not a lot I can do really.
4 weeks left, and that'll be year 1 done.
