ds's school has seperate sciences adn he LOVEs chemistry - it must be all the fiddling potential

Ds loves everything (only day 3 though!).

He really liked French, and was rather taken by Mademoiselle which I'm sure enhanced his enjoyment!

Astonishingly, he enjoyed Dance! They had to pretend to be fireworks shooting into the sky. Ds is terrible at sporty things and PE. He has two left feet and moves at a slothful speed. He was really apprehensive about this Dance subject as he thought it offered endless opportunities for humiliation. But he said the teacher (male in mini shorts with bouffant hair) was very friendly and cheerful and the lesson was great fun.

Drama and Spanish. The only thing she can say properly is hello. Mind you we are going to Spain in Feb half-term so there is plenty of time..

hasn't had all his lessons yet...

but so far loves science and art and, RS (because it was philosophy and ethics and everything!)

DD only started yesterday, so hasn't had many (though lunch definitely made an impression), but DH looked at her timetable for today and said, 'If you can survive German and Chemistry first thing, you can cope with anything', which I didn't really think was in the right spirit...

DD was looking forward to DT this morning and Science, apparently her teacher is gorgeous. She is a bit disappointed with maths as she has two teachers and one of them is new and can't control the class, which is a shame as she is very mathmatically minded.

EccentricaGallumbits Thu 10-Sep-09 12:55:29

DD says she hates them all.

however she did say the DT teacher was funny.

So, week 1, how much have you been stung for so far?

My tally for the week is £18 for art materials and tec materials but this covers the whole of KS3 so we will not be asked for them again.

Pyrocanthus Thu 10-Sep-09 17:07:28

£20 school fund. Annual.

Dazmum Thu 10-Sep-09 18:50:17

£6.50 for DT materials!

DS was cross because he wanted to do cooking and he has to do print making until Christmas instead. Muttered something about making a cushion, which is not good, because he really suffered at having to sew a design in wool on one he made at primary school!

He really likes art, and says the maths teacher is mad. Had to draw a picture of Spongebob Squarepants in English!

PE was great, apparently. smile

He likes Chemistry too - think teacher did blowing up things to get them on side. Also History and . . . Latin.

Pyrocanthus Fri 11-Sep-09 20:22:29

Maths! grin

mollyroger Sat 12-Sep-09 12:19:51

Bit bewildered that ds is doing 'science' as opposed to Physics, chem, biology...
Assume they will specialise at a later date?
He loves his science teacher (again, he promised to blow things up for them hmm)

NoahAmin Sat 12-Sep-09 12:23:28

they wanted £30 a MONTH at ours

cutekids Tue 15-Sep-09 16:39:51

None of them...."all boring" apparently lol!!

cutekids Tue 15-Sep-09 16:41:05

Can't get over the fact that this is her third week and she's had pizza and chips or burger and chips alternately....so much for healthy school meals shock

Mumwhensdinneready Wed 16-Sep-09 19:21:29

NoahDear Wed 16-Sep-09 19:23:31

DS1 says English is really fun at his new school, and at last he's allowed to call it English, not Literacy! He also says (implausibly) that he wants to be really good at Latin. He doesn't like DT (genetically, sadly, he's unlikely to be good at it) and doesn't like French.

Pyrocanthus Wed 16-Sep-09 21:17:43

DD got a nice lilac exercise book for geography today.

Mumwhensdinneready Thu 17-Sep-09 14:45:19

The new school is a major culture shock to my DS as he went to a tiny village primary. There were 8 in year six and now 140 in year 7. So as well as all the usual worries about big school he has to get used to the sheer numbers of other children.
We live in the sticks so DS2 going to school on the school bus. This is not new to him as he went on the bus to primary.He's been telling me about bad behaviour on the school bus last night (older kids being rowdy). Thinking about whether to ring school. I think I'll wait and see if there's a repeat performance.

Mollyroger ...I also have DS1 in year 9 and they have just split the sciences.In years 7 and 8 they seemed to do half a term each on chem/physics/biology but it was just called "science".

Dd is loving that they get graded in Art

Very proud of her level 5 A - whatever that means blush

Pyrocanthus Thu 17-Sep-09 21:48:33

She's right to be proud of her 5A. I think my DD will also be pleased to be assessed in Art.

Pyrocanthus Thu 17-Sep-09 21:57:02

And she keeps dropping 'comme ci, comme ca' and 'merci beaucoup' into the conversation, which I think roughly translates as, 'I think I quite like French'.
