Here in the Frozen North we have secondary schools and grammar schools. They are where you go after Primary School. You spend all of P6 and the start of P7 being mercilessly drilled for The Transfer Test which happens in the early winter of P7. The results of this test decide whether you will go to a grammar school, usually highly regarded, or a secondary school, not usually highly regarded. This simplistic and overly generalistic summary of our education system will no doubt be revised over the next fourteen months on fraise because..
Mattman is now in P6.
However, I would record heartfelt and joyous thanks for Mr Knight. Mr Knight is Mattman's P6 teacher. Mr Knight believes that he will get more work out of happy children. Mr Knight has spent the whole month of September revising everything from the full-stop to times tables. Mr Knight has not "hit the ground running" with past papers. Mr Knight's homework for tonight was to create a character out of fruit and vegetables. Mattman presents Super Vegetable Delight.
Thank you, Mr Knight!
(Mr Knight really is called Mr Knight.)
