Curse of Transition

What a bizarre week! Firstly, Carole my lovely classroom assistant fell over her foot whilst ringing the bell yesterday! She ended up going to Wipps X in an ambulance and has broken her foot and will be off work for 3 weeks!

Next........ today poor little David (5 years old) bumped into "a bigger boy" and had an enormous bump between his eyes!!! His eyes started rolling..... I ended up in Whipps X with him all afternoon until his mummy arrived!

What with my accident in January... I told Kelly my other assistant that I would wrap her in bubble wrap for the rest of the year because it looks like it is her turn next!

Severe case of modulitis

That's it, I know what is wrong with me. Cold sweats, palpitations, headache and difficulty breathing. May and I have discovered a new disease... modulitis. A disease that is connected with completing modules. I think that I have got it really bad and intend to look into a vaccine for this. I think the cure possibly will be not to ever study again!!! Two modules complete and just a re-write of an essay to do. Two new modules will no doubt arrive next week!!!! THE LAST ONES EVER!!!!

Stressed of Loughton

I am trying to finish two assignments before 26th April. The first one is a 3,500 word essay about Robert Owen and Margaret McMillan and their influence on early years education today. (who? you say) I must have read every book on the subject and looked at every education act since 1870. I have sat up in be late at night hilighting relevent text. (I even had to go and buy a green highlighter because the orange one was making me ill- I HATE ORANGE!). The essay is taking shape but everytime I read it I want to delete it!!!!

The second assignment is about the place of assessment in education today. I have had to build a portfolio of a child and then have to write a 2,500 word essay. I haven't even thought about that yet.... apart from the fact I may use.............. blue highlighter............ then I have to re-write an essay I got back that failed by 1%........... remind me someone........why am I doing this...........roll on the summer when I can read a trashy book.

If it wasn't for my dear friend May and my darling Laurence(who picks me up of the floor when I scream about it) I would have given up long ago.

Great Time

Well, Glasgow, Barking, East Ham or Tilbury..... Only Jaimie Joelle and I know the truth. We had a great time. I caught up with my old friends Jo and Norry Zinger and the girls hung out with Jenny and her crowd. They spent an evening at Maccabi and had a great time at Jenny's party. We all laughed and ate too much. Thanks Zingers!
