Exam pressure.

So as you know I've been doing some exam invigilation and somehow I've managed to become a 'scribe'! I was asked, said I'd never done it before but would give it a go and now seem to be permanently the boys scribe. It's like doing the exam yourself and my poor hand hasn't written so much in years! Poor Sophie has been revising for weeks and faced her first AS exams this week, in Economics, Geography and Maths - the dreaded Physics is next week!

At least the weather hasn't been great whilst stuck inside, although a little more sunshine would be most welcome now - it is mid May!

Yesterday I did supply teaching in Reception and had some extra visitors in the classroom. I used to love doing the life cycles topic when I taught full time.

The peonies I treated myself to have not disappointed - big and blousey, with a fragrant perfume.

So the weekend is nearly upon us and I'm hoping for lots of sunshine, so I can sit out and enjoy the garden. Sophie has the weekend off work to revise and I have no plans, so let's hope the weather is kind to us all.

Ooh! Exam time is always hard, isn't it? Good luck to your daughter! So do you do supply teaching from reception to secondary? That's an impressive range!

Angel Jem I'm Early Years trained but have led Art clubs with older children over the years. After a 6 yr break I've been doing supply with Reception, Nursery, Year 3 and Year 5 (so far) and am doing exam invigilation in the Senior school and have been an exam scribe to a Year 11 pupil. I guess having lived in, in boarding schools over the years, you get used to all ages, keeps me on my toes x
