    Haha everyone says that, they're only 35 minutes long. It would seem that the majority of people have longer ones as all the new girls at my school were so confused by how you fit 9 periods in one day [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.png[/IMG]
    Oh wow, I don’t think I’d like having lessons that short really! It wouldn’t be very good for PE, and with other lessons when you’re trying to do a past paper you’d have to shop halfway through I have five hour-long lessons per day, I like it because you have long enough to go into a good depth of a topic.

    Guys I'm immature... Please say lessons instead of periods [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.png[/IMG]

    "How can you fit 9 periods in a day?" is making me :giggle:
    ….please say you’re not doing Biology! Crazy kid

    Yeah I guess that's true. Plus (it might just be the teachers I've had/seen) I think language teachers seem to be the most enthusiastic teacher - apart from Physics teachers, bless 'em. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image002.png[/IMG]

    He was amazing! When we had our first lesson with him he made us wait outside, and before we were allowed in he said he wanted to tell us something. All he said was, "If you're one of those kids that likes to go up to teachers and shout, 'Sir! Sir! Look what I've done! Are you proud of me?', I don't give a ****. In you go."

    Yeah, his personality was great. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.png[/IMG]If we ever got too loud in class he'd just stick on some classical music and blast it as loud as he could. He used to teach Music at my school, but soon stopped and just did Science. He must be around 27 now. I'd love to see him again. I remember in our last 5 lessons with him he booked computer rooms, and he just let us do whatever we wanted. During the year he also put everyone's name into a hat, and every Friday, two names would get pulled out, and those two people would have a week to prepare a 5 minute presentation on anything scientific of their choice. Sorry if I'm going on.. It's just the more I say, the more I remember about this guy.

    Quentin Harper, you're the man, dawg.

    Thanks, but I really don't like my hair. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image003.png[/IMG]

    Yeah, I stick them up because they just clog up my wallet. [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Grace/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image004.gif[/IMG]
    Ah, I think it may be different between teachers. One of my Geography teachers is amazing, he just has so much enthusiasm for the subject that it just radiates off him, when he was talking at our Sixth Form Open Evening about the Geography syllabus he approached it with such enthusiasm that my parents both remarked they wanted to go back to school to do A-level Geography with him :’)

    Wow, he does sound pretty cool! I shall have to meet this dude someday. Oh God, I would hate that though, it’s more than enough for me when teachers ask me to answer questions or read aloud from the textbook Ah no, it’s interesting to hear, he dos sound like a rather cool guy.

    Oh no, it’s cool hair! It looks fun.

    Same here, I get the train to and from school every day I’m overflowing with them. I also have them around my mirror and around a picture of John Lennon and Yoko Ono

    I'm from Cavan but I can't remember it at all. We kept moving around because mom and dad kept getting reassigned to new hospitals. And as for where I am now...somewhere in Fermanagh and that's as much as I'll tell you
    St.Pat's, Cavan always beat our school at football.

    Fermanagh is okay, I like Enniskillen. (Y) (I'm from Down)

    Mine was actually really nice. I had chemistry, maths and geography, and all three seemed okay - we were mainly recapping GCSE work, nothing too challenging just yet...

    I have had the best 'first' day ever today! I did barely nothing, got my timetable, spoke to people, met teachers, ate, played games etc. My school was notorious for tight timetables last year, with no frees and you had to turn up for study periods at a certain place, so you don't get 'frees' technically. This year, it changed. On Friday, I have 2 study periods and I finish at 11am!!! Same applies for Wednesdays.
