Skills Tests x 3…DONE!
I passed my third and final skills test this week: numeracy. It was the one I, and I think probably most people, was dreading the most but once I got in there the test was much easier than expected. This was despite technical issues with the headphones blasting out at top volume which took two blokes several minutes to sort out and meant missing the first three mental arithmetic questions because they refused to re-set the test...Hmm!
Other than that I have had a fairly stress free week in work and even got to listen to an insightful talk from Paul Dowswell, author of Auslander, when he came into school to speak to year 9. I think the librarian is keen to get me involved in as much as possible and I've even been invited along to Solihull Children's Book Awards next year.
