It’s half-term!

School has been online since January and learning has been pretty intense. Since term commenced we’ve been told GCSE and IGCSE exams are cancelled. Part of me is really disappointed. Over the last two years I’ve been working hard studying, revising and ensuring I can get the best possible grades. Everything was concentrated on preparing for the exams. At the moment we’re waiting to hear exactly how we’ll be assessed, but it is likely results will be teacher assessed grades.

Straight after half-term I go back to assessments. As school is still closed I’ll be doing them at home, screen on so I can be seen by the teacher. As we don’t know the evidence needed for results every piece of work matters. So, over the course of the next week, I shall be revising hard. My half-term grade card has given me some real hope for the grades to aim for. Now I just have to keep producing the work to prove I am 100% worthy of the predictions.

As if that’s not enough, school have set a challenge. Walk 187 miles between now and the end of term. The distance is that between Stonar in Kent where the school was originally based and where it is based now. We’re allowed to include family members thankfully! I’ll post some pictures at the end of the week of our first few walks.

  1. It was interesting, but concerning, to read your awful experiences of the exam uncertainty. It is so unsettling for you all.
    I have to admit that Gavin Williamson went to the school where I used to teach, but long after I had left. My wife remembers him, as she was there many years after I had moved on – taught him RE. We plead not guilty to his chaotic carryings on!
