An unusual day at work (in the 1500s!)

Hi all, 

It's been a busy time lately at school so this post is just to give you a quick peek at my Friday at work (and maybe a make you laugh immaturely).

One of the great things about our school is that we go on a trip for every unit of inquiry. In preparation for my next unit of inquiry about the local area, we went to a castle. They had some clues hidden in different rooms which held the children's attention and the best bit was that we got to dress up (teachers and children) in medieval costumes and do a mini-show. It amazes me how unusual your working day can be in this profession!

I couldn't help giggling at these crests around the castle. The man who owned it had a surname similar to the word for a certain part of the male anatomy. So, yes, that's three pairs you see in the family crest. Legend has it that he was so manly, he had THREE of them! Our tour guide told the children they were "upside-down little hearts!"
