Stuffed Toy Story

So busy spending my whole night doing more plans and more slideshows, making more resources to chalk up another 12 hour+ day.....

But I felt compelled to take a quick break, and blog to rejoice about the excitement I have for my period 5 lesson tomorrow, a year 10 BTec class. For those who have taught BTec science, Unit 3 is on Biology, assignment 2 is on classification, and I am faced with this tomorrow. For years, I have been living with my wife putting up with all her junk. She is a hoarder, and owns many an unnecessary item which gets proudly displayed throughout the house. My golf clubs however are thrown into the under-stairs cupboard with such little regard..... Our spare room / my teaching prep room is littered with cuddly toys, yet tomorrow they finally serve a use. It came to my attention this evening that within those toys was an example of an insect, a bird, a mammal, a fish, a chocolate raisin (why Sarah?)..... basically I can cover most taxonomy groups using these things. So I am going to do that!

Anyway, another 100 lessons to plan and prep for Thursday. Have a parents evening tomorrow so little time to work after school!!

Bloody hard work this teaching :-)
