Well Not a lot to be honest……….. Allan has been working especially at weekends so we haven’t really been out and about much…….
Alex has got the cooking bug so at least three times a week he is cooking dinner…………
We got the results of the Kent Test (11 plus) he took back in September…. and he passed but has changed his mind about going to the grammar school, well we hope he has…….. I haven’t put it on the preferences for senior school choice but there again I’m not holding my breath for the school I do want him to go to as I want him to go to Westlands, Yes I know its had some bad press but at the end of the day its had excellent ofsted reports. I know the school, it has been kept up with the times and looks clean and modern in comparison to the grammar school which doesn’t look like its had a coat of paint since my oldest went there to look around. but I have been told that westlands have an intake priority to get in..
1. Local Authority
3. Regis Manor
4. Westlands Primary
5. Maths Aptitude test….. (sadly Alex’s worst subject)
6 surrounding villages such as Iwade, and Newington
7. Other areas and applicants……
And although it’s the closest senior school to us oddly we don’t fall under the catchment area… that is for Fulston Manor..
I know I have the right to appeal but I have a feeling its going to be a battle…..
We will have to wait and see now until March.
Its getting close to the end of term now and I can tell, the boys are getting tired… unfortunately we are not going to be able to go and do much over the holidays as I have to take my dad up to London to St Thomas Hospital on Monday for more cardio appointments…….. I’m hoping that I can go for a walk across westminster bridge and around the houses of parliament while dad is in the hospital. Tuesday I have to take Ali to his asthma consultant appointment at Medway hospital, Wednesday is Alex’s doctors appointment… Thursday Ali opticians and take the old man shopping and I’m sure there was something I had to do Friday….. Hopefully we will be able to take the boys somewhere.. or at least I will.. otherwise its going to be a very boring half term.
Other than that . Not a lot going on at the moment…….
Hate this time of year after a busy summer………… I’m busy because I’m doing my courses……. I’m now teaching on a Friday with Adults instead of children…….. So much better as I wasn’t keen on the idea of working with kids………. Mine I tolerate…everyone else’s I can’t stand 😉 (joke) I think…………. We have stopped the cardboard collecting and to be honest there is a rather nasty atmosphere at the scouts at the moment I will go into more detail when I find out what’s going on but lets just say after we have given it our all for the last two years we are feeling rather peeved at the moment.. I have kept away and Allan just goes on a Thursday as assistant cub leader…….
Time will tell if my theory is right………..
