Well done to you all for your fantastic results...100% pass rate and several of you with full marks at AS.
You should be completing your summer work this week and ensuring you have taken your first 2 sets for 2 weeks time.
If you sun finally comes out, we will be well on our way to complete some cyanotypes.

 You will always be one of my flock, honk if you need help!

            The flight of the Goose-Stand by each other.

When you see geese flying along in "V" formation, you might consider what
science has discovered as to why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its
wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in "V"
formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range
than if each bird flew on its own. People who share a common direction and
sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily
because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.
When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and
resistance of trying to go it alone — and quickly gets back into formation to
take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front. If we have as much
sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are headed
the same way we are.
When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another
goose flies point. It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether
with people or with geese flying south. Geese honk from behind to encourage
those up front to keep up their speed.
What messages do we give when we honk from behind? Finally — and this is
important — when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out
of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to
lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly
or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own, or with
another formation to catch up with their group.

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other, share skills and get those A*-A's you can all achieve.

Have a good weekend my feathered friends!!!!
