I haven't been near my blog for a few days this week because work has been seriously busy again. My Year 11s did their Leavers Concert on Tuesday evening. There was a real sense of occasion as they all played together one last time. There was a surprise item right at the end - a 'thank you' song that had been written to the Finale of Bugsy Malone. Yesterday a group came round at lunchtime and presented me with a copy of the words in a card that they'd all signed. They also stuck a photo of the performers from the night before on the front. I keep things like this in a scrapbook. It's nice to have all my school memories in one place.
This is my class (there are two Year 11 classes) in their final Music lesson this morning. You can see how excited they are about the whole 'Leavers' thing!
These are my lovely Year 11s in form. They really liked their cards and photo frames.
Here are the whole form. The older pupils are at the front and the younger years are stood behind them. My classroom walls are covered with photos from all the performances and shows that we've done in the last 18 months.
There was also a Year 10 Parents Evening last night.... another late evening. Fortunately Mark is happy to turn his hand to a little cooking and ironing, and he was doing both when I eventually got home last night. He's a lovely man!!!
The final departure for my post today is a youtube clip that one of our friends has posted. It shows 'The Kitten' leaving the Kit Car Show on Sunday. It's pretty noisy, given that Mark was only driving on a light throttle!
