  2. I don't really have a favourite at the moment. Ive been eating porridge, malt wheats, rice crispies, and wheetabix when i feel like it. I tend to avoid breakfast as i dont allocate the time for it in the morning and just like with any other food, if i can't be bothered i wont get anything. I will make everyone elses food though.

  3. My parents mainly liked pop punk and the odd ska punk band(there are some other genres they like but only the odd artist).

    I have followed on with liking pop punk and ska and the odd rock/metal band. I seem to have developed a hatred for any other genre of music like dance, rap, general pop.

    My favourite band ive seen live 6 or 7 times and still enjoy going everytime.

  4. In most of the cases in schools its the teachers that catch the virus or at least the ones that show signs of it and then classes have to close. Some kids need more help than others.. some get on fine doing it at home with parents if possible but some never get on well without face to face learning from a trained teacher so it really does depend.

    I volunteered in a primary school and you easily see the difference between those who can work independantly and those who can't. Some also don't get as much help at home than others so kids are generally better in school learning aslong as better precautions are taken. Otherwise its going to spread much easier.

    This 2nd lockdown doesnt really seem like a lockdown because the majority of daily life is just as its been for the whole year anyway, most of us are getting used to going out less and only going to the shop when essential.

    Which is exactly why academies need to be put into reverse and scrapped entirely. Primary schools paying heads 100k+ because it’s an academy rather than an lea school is totally wrong. That money needs to be spent on the children.

    Academies are the blight of the education system.

    Personally i don't like schools being academies either but my daughters got forced into it and my sons head teacher changed it to an acedemy then left saying she'd acheived her goals(it was the last secondary school that was run by the council until then). They should all get the same wages as they are doing the same job.

    Regards the NEUs line...I was fortunate enough to 'virtually sit in' on the executive board meeting the day after Johnson announced it. I know Both Mary B and Kev C well from my headship years, NUT rep years and political meetings, so when Kevin Courtney asked me to sit in, I jumped at the chance. The decisions made by the unions are sound. The 'tests' that need meeting are secure and sensible to protect the children and all the staff involved from cleaners to teachers. Strike action was discussed, which I cautioned against. Public opinion is volatile at the best of times, but now.....

    The current education system in England struggles due to the Academisation issue. Take Nottingham City for example. City Council have agreed with the NEU line and refused to open for more than key workers or vulnerable children. (Which is correct imo.) The issue occurs with multi-trust academies making their own decisions so one school may be closed and the next one along only a few hundred yards away may be looking to open for all year groups asap. Ludicrous.



    Nottingham city council dont control many schools now though, most have been forced and chosen to change to academy so its upto the academy not the council. To me it is a good decision to keep it to keyworkers children only at the moment though.

  7. Everythings at a standstill at the moment, i just wished people who keep going out unnessisarily would listen so we can all go about our daily lives sooner than later and have less deaths.. its only putting more at risk.
