During my second teaching practice I did an observed lesson on Judaism about circumcision. There was no case for being embarrassed - I left that to those in the classroom.

Well two children were sat in the classroom at the end of an RE lesson having heard that Jews and Muslims are circumcised. One turns to the other.

  "That means you must have been done then."
  "Yes I was."
  "When was it done, were you were a baby like them?"
  "Five weeks old."
  "Was it painful?"
  "What do you mean, 'Was it painful?' I couldn't walk for twelve months."
