No dvds here....sadangryshock

MistresssIggi Wed 14-Dec-16 06:48:44

Best of luck, and remember it's just ofsted, they're not the Spanish Inquisition. flowers

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 06:48:49

Ah stressful! Why would there have been dvds?

LuluJakey1 Wed 14-Dec-16 06:48:56

Good luck- what a time!

DorothyL Wed 14-Dec-16 06:53:32

Run up to christmas does involve watching dvds sometimes, doesn't it?

DoctorDonnaNoble Wed 14-Dec-16 06:56:08

We don't break up until next Wednesday. I will be breaking out Muppets Christmas Carol in my penultimate year 7 lesson. We're working on Christmas Carol and they will do a piece of writing on it. There's a place for DVDs sometimes.

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 06:56:27

We don't break up until mid next week here so just assumed it's a normal week I guess.

Sleeperandthespindle Wed 14-Dec-16 06:58:52

At least it'll be over with soon. But I do feel sorry for you!
What a ridiculous and patronising question above 'Why would there be DVDs?'. Almost all of us will have known exactly what you meant in your OP!
Let us know later how it went.

"Why would there be dvds?"

Best week of the year the one before Xmas. Movies, Carol concerts, parties. Awesome week from what I remember and I little one watches the odd dvd at the end of the term too.

MistresssIggi Wed 14-Dec-16 07:05:28

"It's a normal week" ha, someone should tell the pupils that, they're high as kites.

Monochromecat Wed 14-Dec-16 07:05:40

Oh dear god what a week for offsets! Good luck 😊

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 07:16:08

Ridiculous and patronising

Ha yes, for daring to ask a question.

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 07:18:54

Also I don't remember saying they shouldn't, just wasn't aware it would be a daily thing at this stage with a week left to go.

NapQueen Wed 14-Dec-16 07:22:04

Who said it would be daily?

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 07:24:32

So it isn't? That's great then.

Expellibramus Wed 14-Dec-16 07:26:05

I have nothing against TV, but like I said, surprised if it would be daily at this stage but perhaps it isn't.

RubyWinterstorm Wed 14-Dec-16 07:30:24

Ah, are you in Hsmpshire?

My son's school is being Ofstetted today

DS said normally they just watch movies/colour in/secret santa/school concerts in the last week.

TheSnowFairy Wed 14-Dec-16 19:39:36

DD (8) said the best bit about school today was watching some of the film of Alice in Wonderland (not the Christmas lunch, the Christmas jumper, the choir practice...)!

Their topic theme is potions so I like to think Ofsted would have seen it in a positive light, had they been in today (fwink).

Good luck op fsmile

they're not the Spanish Inquisition.

But wouldn't it be much more fun if they turned up dressed in Monty Python Spanish Inquisition costumes. It should be a law.

pieceofpurplesky Wed 14-Dec-16 21:54:36

We don't break up till Friday next week and there is a rule of no DVDs/quizzes etc. Until the last day. Kids are in the ceiling already.

HopeClearwater Thu 15-Dec-16 19:42:27

Ha Ruby they're all over Hampshire at the moment!

ChampagneTastes Thu 15-Dec-16 19:45:21

They were at my DS's school today (primary). Hope it all goes smoothly for you all.

leccybill Thu 15-Dec-16 22:52:20

I finish on Wed. Cracking open the DVDs on Monday.
Did Christmas worksheets today.
The kids are exhausted.

elephantoverthehill Fri 16-Dec-16 17:55:06

Finished today, hurrah, but Ofsted very likely to be in early next year, so that's a Christmas of marking, planning and worrying. This afternoon I made my year 7s do a normal lesson as they had work to finish. They seemed to be more than happy to do this. grin. I hope it went well for you.

Ofsted were in this week at my school. I'm shattered but glad it's over and done with.
