The Curriculum Guidence for the Foundation Stage is quite good, the Literacy and Numeracy stratergies were awful, but they're being revised, so I hope they won't be as bad! One day I'll read a really enjoyable book again!
I'm just up to it now, I've been meaning to read it ever since I read 1984 twice back to back (i never do that with books!) and finally found it in the careers section of the library (it's a very disorganised library!)
I'm reading Marching Powder about San Pedro prison in La Paz. Which is an entertaining enough read if hardly a literary heavyweight
I am the reading the History Of the Conservative And The Nation State 1922-1997. By Alan Clark. Yes the dead one. (Does anyone know the originations of the phrase "disgusted of Tunbridge Wells"? I've read it about four times now and well thanks if you know)
I have to read a text about the Fall Of Communism by next week (homework, love it!!)
I flit through the pages on a book about Fell Running now and again... bunch of weirdos who run around the Lake District and the Highlands in disgusting conditions. Very well written though
And I have just started the Panini Football Sticker ALbum 1984. Check out those haircuts
Some natural history:
The Outermost House - Henry Beston
The Outer Lands - Dorothy Sterling
Call me silly, but since the other day I've been dipping in and out of the essays posted on theologian Peter Kreeft's web site. I'm doing some mind-numbing work, so I allow myself one visit after each completed task. Funnily enough, I'd never read him before. Some of his ideas are heartbreakingly beautiful and his writing style is quite singular.
