This photo is called Making The Most of It.It was taken during a wild and windy October day. It wasn't quite so wet as the recent weather!
I think making the most of it is what I want to do this year:
Work as hard as I can for my students and try and develop the skills they need for their next step in life .But I want to achieve this and do things for myself as well ! I'd like to get better at Photography,improve my running: Parkrun is a great safe and social way to run.
I'm also starting a course at college on using Social Media,so I may be blogging a bit more to practice some of my new skills!
I've written 23 posts this year, most have been linked to subjects I am teaching . Since September I have been teaching Personal Safety including Road Safety,a gardening enterprise, ICT safety, Community Action,Recycling and Maths and English.
We still use the OCR qualification : Life and Living and Employability but are exploring the opportunities offered by using RARPA,especially with students working at Milestone 8 or below.
My college is now in its third year of waiting for OFSTED but it should be over by February as this is the end of the legal time limit .
It was with dismay that I read the recent Guardian article:
I wish you a Happy New Year, sucess with your students and a good work life balance
Here are a list of my top ten posts from the last 5 years:
