What a morning, thought I would come upstairs and craft while Andrew is sat downstairs sitting his 2nd GCSe exam or whatever they are AQA , such a peculiar syatem that has 2 tiers to it that the teachers choose what level the kids get entered at and if it's foundation the highest grade they can get is a C. You may well gather I think it is an unfair system as some kids don't do well in class and then thrive in exams , others are the reverse but the kids don't get any input. The reasoning that most are entered into the foundation (max C gade) is if child fails at upper level get a bad grade when I have questioned at school and they think its better someone gets a high mark guarenteeing a C than risking bad mark on higher paper and ending up with a D. Personally I feel it's more to do with school being able to say they had a high % pass rate as passes on foundation count down to lower grades. Enough of my rants, not that any of it will make any difference and please don't get me started on schools organisational skills for allowing Andrew to sit his exams at home. They were still amending and changing the arrangements last night even though he sat his first exam yesturday, very unsettling for Andrew. Not being able to organise a drunken party in a brewery etc to be polite.
Anyway my craft project.This card I thought I'd give myself a challenge and do a card for a male but use pink. I found a few challenges that I could enter if I succeeded and I am actually quite pleased with how my card turned out , not too girly at all.
