    the all-important gcse grades:

    monday 12th march☄️

    didn’t update last night because we had problems with our wifi🙄

    yesterday i had two developments in christian thought lessons, one of which we just watched a film on bonhoeffer. i had a tudors lesson but loads of people were on a trip so we barely covered anything. i wrote up some chem notes in supervised study which was gooddd.

    in the evening i printed, highlighted and filed anything i needed to and did a load of revision for my philosophy timed essay that i had this morning.

    hope you’re all having a good week🌈

    tuesday 13th march☀️

    today i had a timed essay in philosophy which i think i flopped🤦🏻*♀️ then a really bad chem lesson and an okay history lesson on the communists

    this evening has been one of those where everything seems to happen🤦🏻*♀️ but i watched a tudors documentary for homework and did a mindmap for wolsey’s domestic policies.

    double tudors, chemistry, enrichment and christian thought tomorrow in which i’m probably getting my essay back😑

    thursday 15th march💫

    had a decent day today!! had an appointment this morning so wasn’t in school until period 3.

    we’ve finished the philosophy units now so we’re onto christian thought in both our philosophy and ethics lessons.

    i then had a really good free, managed to do my history and christian thought homeworks☺️

    last lesson was chemistry and we did some more work on mass spec in organic analysis then started work on a required practical.

    this evening i did some enthalpy questions, my tudors homework and work on my cambridge comp essay😊
