was laughing remembering when as anew teacher I put
"william had a big___" as a fill in the gaps sentence for a very weak group on the board.

as i wrote it out I was reading it, and i started helpless gufffawing. It was so bad i was weeping and couldnt turn around...

WHat have you done?

Laughed at a child who fell over a chair when I made him leave he room. To be fair he was constantly doing things like that to gain attention and get laughs. Had to look out the window for a bit once is checked he was ok!

One of my colleagues had to go home at playtime after a staff night out because she was so hungover.

Our head was not happy!

My colleague had to go to sleep in a cupboard during a free period after a heavy night out

I've just remembered the trip I went on when I was a student teacher. I rolled out of a club at 3am, got up to go into school for a 7am coach pickup and promptly slept for for the entire 2 and a half hour journey from Bristol to London, despite the racket of 45 Y6s.

My judgypants would be round my ears if a student I was mentoring did that now!

The first time I taught in reception, I gave them all a piece of paper titled 'what I did in the summer holidays'..
I thought they could write what they did!! I had pretty much most of the class in tears saying they couldn't do it... Not a great start to the year but they got over itwink

I went behind a girl I thought was my daughter in the library yesterday and put my hands round her neck and made throttling noises.

Needless to say it wasn't my daughter.

I couldn't help but laugh, and said 'Oh good grief! I think I have done that before!'

The girl said 'Yes, you have.'

It appears that I have assaulted this girl in this manner earlier this year. Mortifying! Fortunately she does not have a phobia about people touching her neck, and thought it was really funny as well.

DSs teacher sent a letter out saying the class would all need "willies" instead of "wellies".

His other teacher also forgot to tell the sub that we withdraw DS from religious assembly's (atheist).

He came out of school with an ash cross on his forehead waving a palm crucifix. His teacher was mortified (it was quite funny actually).

Got the giggles when a boy with autism suddenly started shouting "YOU ARE FAT!" at the teacher. That went down well.

Actually, I get the giggles quite a lot.

I broke a 'show and tell' item this week :-(

Luckily it's new and replaceable at not much cost. The pupil as OK about it, but I was mortified.

I was trying so desperately hard to ensure that I said 'organism' when doing science with a yr 4 class, that of course the word 'orgasm' popped out!!

TA and I manage to fudge over it and the children didn't have a clue thank God!
