JULY 2017: Pupils in pairs exerience, record & score 7 very nasty or mind-numbingly boring jobs such as being a churl, a coin thrall, bog iron hunter, powder monkey, body-snatcher, artist's model and nit picker.
Identified need: to enthuse about History; active LOtC opportunities; community collaboration; School development plan to widen community links
Beneficiaries: Year 5s, as wider subject experience and learning.
'Worst jobs' day is part of an application for a grant to the Chalke Valley History Trust, which was successful.
