    As we return to work in dribs and drabs this week and next I'd just like to say:



    1. Break a leg!

    2. Guard your McCrone and SNCT rights jealously!

    3. Enjoy yourself (it's later than you think!)

    4. CfE is - as the results and ScotGov have just proven - whatever the heck you want it to be (especially projects like designing balloons in technical to be painted in art, experimented with in Science, budgeted for in Maths, played with in PE, filmed and edited in Computing and written up in English inspiring a musical performed by Music and Drama.) so don't sweat it



    ;) x




     
  2. Don't forget learning the word for "balloon" in French...

    What a great opportunity to show the award-winning French short film 'Le Ballon Rouge' (1956). At just under 35 minutes, it fits nicely into one class period with time for discussion:

    During the 1970s, the 'integrated day' was heavily promoted especially in the early years of primary school.

    However, as the one class teacher was expected to cover the entire curriculum, establishing often artificial links between the different subject areas, it was sometimes called the 'disintegrated day'!
