Spent much of this week talking to the Year 13 part of my form about the great unknown that is next year.
My favourite question is, 'What do your parents think?'
The ones who have to have the application in early are getting it together, the others have a little time. It's all sooner than they would like.
At the other end of the spectrum, I am for the first time reaching Year 6, who are, as yet very cute, but ask squillions of questions. They do at least wait their turn before telling you random facts. No-one left his bag, PE kit, lunch card, blazer in the room, so no tears so far. I just have to remain in gentle primary teacher mode and all will be well.
