Audrey does 'topic talks' at school and chose this week to discuss why the days of the week are so called.
Some are fairly obvious when you think about it - Sunday - named after the sun, Saturday - named after Saturn and Monday - 'moon' day - named after the moon.
Rather less obvious are the other ones and we enjoyed spending time researching (o.k wikipedia-ing) how the others got their names and Audrey drew some really nice pictures to accompany her talk.
Wednesday is named after Woden - a Germanic/Norse deity - a pretty big figure from the 6th to 16th centuries. It's also the name of our local shopping centre.
Describing Norse mythology all came a bit heavy and so Audrey's presentation ended up with this as an explanation for how Wednesday got it's name - who'd have thought...
