    Had my Year 9 mentoring again today. One of the 4, who's really cheeky on it, said he was done his Maths homework and put his book away, wouldn't let me look at it. Took it, he had half of them wrong. Then explained it to him and he ended up getting them all right without me telling. :cool:

    It doesn't sound too bad. I've never heard of schools using older students to help younger students.
    Really? My school does loads of things like that - employing Sixth Formers as MDSAs, getting us to volunteer to run Homework Clubs and Science Clubs etc, sending us on Year 7 Camp as supervisors, all sorts! We're encouraged to do as much for the lower school as possible, time permitting.

    Does anybody think the head of PE at my college is a spitting image of Sean Lock!?

    I walked past him today and I did a triple take, I could have sworn it was Sean Lock.

    Not the best picture, as I had to go onto the college's email system thing and get his picture, but still, what do you think!?

    Yeah, I've never heard of them helping academically. We have a system at my school where the older kids help with the transition from primary to secondary and they help out with lunch clubs and stuff, but we don't help out academically at all.

    I feel like the year 7s at my school would be like that too. Most of them know more swear words than I do.

    I'm not sure about the paired reading scheme, anyone else thinking of doing it? If you don't know, it's when you have a year 7 read to you and you help them when they struggle. Apparently my school doesn't do the same but with Math, shame.
