Coffee Break!

I see we've made the change over to Coffee Break.
Since reading the recent posts I feel more like coming on here and joining in and it seems many others are 'coming back' and the there seems a lot more life on here lately, even while it was still Whats Cooking.
I hope it stays like this. I know I will make more effort because this is nice and how it should be.

I don't believe for a second that people will come flooding back because of a pointless name change. The entire business of all this has just been embarrassing.

If this exercise of changing the title of this forum has made people start making the effort to chat more, then it's been worth it !

Sue, I agree. :o) James so what if you're right? It's done no harm to try.

There's now somewhere that people feel is INTENDED for chatting.

Coffee break!

I'm having my coffee break with a nice shiraz. And I'm in the warm & everything important (heating, oven, telly) is working like it should. I could happily stay like this for the weekend if I have to!

Coffee Break

Earlier today our heating went off. Boiler still working... but the house was freezing. Apparently, according to my handyman (husband), we had air in the water pump and he's now sorted it out. Fingers crossed it continues to be okay. Not sure a plumber would get along our lane now... drifting in a big way.

Naughty steps


Hi Elpe, yes they have naughty steps in France.
I make them sit in the corner, teacher makes them stand outside the class room, which they don't like as the class room is in the playground and they get cold.

It is not easy trying to teach them as they never had English lesson before,& don't want to learn English.

School Inspector who came to see me, said teach them this, teacher tells me to teach them that.

Yesterday after by normal class i was asked if i could teach the younger class. They were so good, they had already been having lessons with the teacher and could do more than the class above them.

How old are these kids, Sue? I've taught some who'd just run off if they were sent outside the classroom. Time they paid you for all this!

"How old are these kids, Sue? I've taught some who'd just run off if they were sent outside the classroom. Time they paid you for all this! "


Kids are a mixed aged. In small villages they have to mix two classes into one. Sometimes 3 in 1.

My daughter and son are together in one class but different years. (CE2 plus CM1) Ages from 8 to 10.
22 children.

The oldest children who are aged from 9 to 11 ( CM2) ( 10 children) are mixed with CP who are 7 to 8 years.

For some afternoon lessons one teacher will take CE2/CM1/CM2 31 kids to do History /English etc.

We did used to split the 32 kids into two groups for English. The lsson was to short. Now we do one subject over two weeks i take one half for 45 min's and have the other half the following week. The younger one who started yesterday they are age 7 to 8. and there are just 11 of them.

If & when the teacher puts them outside the door, there is no escaping as the gates are about 2 meters high and locked.

The last village where we lived had to loose a teacher when we left. They needed to have 100 children to keep 5 teachers. 98 children & one teacher had to go.

When the children move up to College (High school) they get quite a shock as there amount of children per class can be quite high.

Tablet

Sue, mine has a spell checker on it, but I bet you could get a free spell checker app for it. Which browser do you use? I think Google may have one built in.
