The best end of year gift for a teacher: Battlefield Terrain

Simply the best end of term gift I've ever received, and that includes the bottle of champagne so expensive I had to declare it for tax purposes.

As I was packing up my classroom after a hard day of getting students to learn about projectile motion (we played with water bottle rockets), two students of mine walked in carrying this thing between them:

warhammer 40k terrain
It's a battlefield!!

Okay, it's made of cardboard and newspaper, and the glue is still drying, but how many teachers can claim to have gotten a hand made battlefield terrain set from their students! Here's some close ups:

Teacher pay is not great, no matter where you work. There's certainly no bonus pay for good years or good results.

But you do get gems like this, which I don't think other professions do.

Good to be a teacher sometimes.

Okay, back to work. I'm on duty in the house, and won't finish until 10.30pm.

Until next time.

Thanks for reading.
