The TV Room


The TV Room is a thing of the past. It existed before SmartBoards, iPads or even computers entered our classrooms. The room in the school dedicated to storing the enormous TV and VHS player. On a rainy afternoon, or when the teacher just needed a break off you’d trundle to settle in for 20 minutes of “Look and Read.” In a similar vein you should treat this corner of the blog as a space to relax and enjoy some of my favourite videos – all very educational of course. Could the last person to leave the room please turn the lights off.

The Common People 

This one is less educational and slightly more political but it always makes me smile. Enjoy.
