That's what Inset days are for ...

... catching up on your May Flaum class! I printed off some photos of our weekend away, these ones are of the Pultney Bridge in Bath. There are only a couple of other bridges like this in the world (apparently!) one of which is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. The unique thing is that the bridge is lined with shops so when you are walking across it, it feels like you are walking down a normal street, you can't see the river at all. It was a really pretty area of the town and a good place to stop for an ice cream!
Whenever we have an inset day at work, I always have to smile as I remember when my son started school he misheard the teacher and thought it was an Insect Day that they were going to have. This is the same boy who kept telling me about aliens in his work book. The teacher had told them to start each sentence close to the Martians (margins)!

Here we used to have "Baker Days" after the govt minister who introduced them. Great page for class..what's up next for you then? I'm thinking of "Picture Fall"

I remember Baker Days from my own schooling... INSET days are a bit odd for me now, because of my split teaching day! I have to be careful to attend the right number of half-days to correspond to the hours I'm paid for!

Good use of an INSET day for you, by the way - love the layout xx

Love the play on words story, Deb. :o)

I assume that "inset" days mean a day off for you? I think they may be the same as "teacher in-service day" here. Although, with those, the teachers have classes or duties and the kids are off school for the day.

I have just found out that the college will have Gilbert days when I go back. It's funny all the different names that are used!
