Well despite the weather, the summer holidays arrived, and the rain continued to pour into the first weekend of the summer break. A very much needed break however, following a manic finish to the end of term. Getting as much prepared for September was challenging itself, without having to battle with the WJEC about the exemplar material I produced for the Essential Skills Wales. Needless to say, I’m not backing down, they need to realise what does and what does not constitute evidence and understanding, I’ve met them in the middle on some points and thats that. Pack all that with a trip to Llandrindod Wells where I presented a talk on Innovation at Ysgol Bryn Elian and it was a very hectic run in.
Since then we’ve been very busy, we had a journey to Surrey for our friends christening which was lovely, Lincoln was very well behaved all the way there and back, made me very proud. My brother came to stay briefly, probably for the last time in a while as he starts his teacher training in September. We are awaiting a break in the weather so we can visit the zoo, Lincoln has been waiting patiently for over a week and if I hear the words elephants or chimpanzee again, I swear I’ll go crazy.
Anyway, that’s all for now, I’m about to have a rant about the Tottenham riots.
