  • In The Sixth Grade We Read

    Every week I take in how many pages each student has read. Below is the "Wall Of Fame", the top readers for the week, and "The 200+ Club", all the students who have read more than 200 pages in a week. Congratulations to all those mentioned!

paella

Posted by willkay on September 25, 2012


We’ve been driving past this paella place (on Las Palmas) four/five times a week. Every time we go past, we mention that we should really try the place out. Last night, for reasons that are far too complicated to go into, we ended up not eating until very late – I had a bowl of cereal and Mrs. Kay had a tin of lentil soup. Today, on the way home, we stopped for paella.

Up to speed on my personal life? Cool. Right:

  • returned maths exams. Only one 10 and eight other students got a 9 or better. It’s a mindset. It’ll come with time, but the students need to aim for perfection. Most of them now realise that with a little more care, concentration, and effort, they could have score another 5 marks, which would have raised their grade a whole point. But, schools are for learning, so we’ll just chalk that down to a learning curve.
  • review for English exam
  • meetings all day about the maths books. Throughout the school (except in the 6th grade) we have a new set of maths books. It is part of my job to oversee the maths taught through the school, so I spent a lot of time in meetings/conversations today.
  • osmosis – the last topic before Thursday’s science exam.

Hopefully you’re up to date now with my professional life. So, I’m off to share a romantic paella for two with Mrs. Kay.

    Empanadas Argentinas. Al igual que la Paella, hoy nos detuvimos a saborear empanadas argentinas en un pequeno local sobre avenida de las ferias. Espero disfruten la paella.
    Any leftovers?
