The weekend is upon us again. End of week 4 in the Big Brother house and insanity has set in.
Note to self: Stay focused on the topic in hand and remember what year group you are teaching for the afternoon.

Well I never!
*Am not sure what they actually meant… unless they’ve seen a show on the Discovery channel that I haven’t!
