Let's catch up. Since I last posted I have written the first draft of a picture book as part of my MA. It's called Mervyn the Magic Martian. I've also read Michael Rosen's SAD BOOK, which is a deeply touching book and I have started to do some research into how children read.
Besides that, I have walked round a huge lake on a cold morning, won at bowling and been thrashed at it and seen the film Definitely Maybe . It's a bit of light entertainment which, with a certificate of 12 and because it was only showing at 6 p.m at my local cinema, attracted quite a few youngsters in the audience. As if I don't have enough to contend with in term time!!
In addition to this, I've just spotted that two of my resources are now advertised on Classroom Resources- How to give a Presentation and Maximising Personal Impact.
I'm sure there's more to tell but I am a little tired so I'd best turn in.

Well what can I write in 10 minutes? That's how long I have before I have to go to my MA class. We've started back and today is the day I get the mark for my first module assignment. Gulp. I'm keeping my fingers and every other crossable item crossed that I've got a good mark.
In any case, even if it isn't, I've been assured these things are subjective. Don't you just love friends? I'm very very lucky because I have some fantastically supportive people around me at the moment, but a wise person once said you get back what you put in, and that goes for relationships and friendships too, I guess.
I got my first module marks and I am so excited to say I got a distinction!!!
I wonder if I will be able to repeat that in my next module? I worked hard enough on it so I am mightily pleased at the outcome. We are now studying word and image - picture books, and so far things have proved to be as interesting as always.
