It was a quick scrapping, college visiting, rugby watching, marking books and doing some tedious admin type tasks, fresh air enjoying but not seeing any bats type of weekend.
Saturday morning I managed to make a LO based on a sketch and a colour board AND using up a long neglected quirky kit. I had to scribble a hasty shopping list for my OH as I realised I wasn't going to get to the supermarket and back before taking my sons in to Nottingham to visit some college open days.
The elder-by-one-minute son doesn't really have much idea what he wants to do. He thinks he may stay on at the school 6th form and take drama, ICT and 'something else' !!!! The younger-by-one-minute son loved the course we heard about at Confetti College in Nottingham (Games Technology). He liked that he could move on to a foundation degree to learn some computer languages (C+ and Java anybody?)
|The world of the computer|
He has an interview in November, but is worried because he has been told that all his ICT coursework is invalid due to a school 'leaking' some content online. We will just have to wait and see.
We popped to another college, the lecturer had a degree in fine art and had learnt to use CAD in his sculpting work. He was an amazingly interesting bloke to talk to and the elder-by-one-minute son was quite interested in the course (Games Development and Design). He's still not sure - I think he is attracted to the 'safety' of staying at school.
We watched more rugby and then I spent on hour or so doing some school work.
Sunday was a boring day of doing housework, marking, ironing, doing seating and sending emails whilst watching the Grand Prix, marking and watching 'Hunted'. We also spend a short time outside looking for bats - they often fly over our garden at night, but we weren't lucky enough to see them this time. It was one of those days where the hours disappear into nothing and you wonder where the time went. It was also a Sunday of feeling very guilty that I didn't manage to go and visit my Mum, who is still recovering from her hip operation.
Today sees me spending the day with Y11 as they do a PSHE day on careers and the next step in their education.
How was your weekend? Busy? Quiet? Relaxed or Hectic? Whatever it was I hope it was Happy,
thanks for popping by
