ds1 apparently recited his times tables wrongly at school yesterday and the teacher made him sit in the corner with a dunces hat on.

This is a joke, right?

fishfinger Wed 13-Jul-05 21:28:35

you takeht the piss

MarsLady Wed 13-Jul-05 21:29:04

I so want this to be a terrible joke QE.

Me.... I'd be straight in there. Humiliation only teaches kids how to feel small and unworthy.

Talk to the teacher. No joy.... straight to the Head!

Lonelymum Wed 13-Jul-05 21:29:33

How old is he QE?

Puff Wed 13-Jul-05 21:29:52

Please tell us you are joking..........

Fran1 Wed 13-Jul-05 21:29:57

I remember having to do that. But that was in the olden days!

This really shouldn't be happening. Report it to the head, they're probably not aware of this one teachers stupid and cruel teaching techniques and be glad you informed them.

How old is your son? How is he?

She asked him to stand up and recite his 2x tables. He started saying 2,4,6,8 etc but she wanted him to say it 1x2=2, 2x2=4 etc.

It was a big black hat with a big "D" on it.

fishfinger Wed 13-Jul-05 21:30:44

oh fgs
this is crap
no way do I belive that

QueenEagle Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:04

He's 11 LM.

If this isnt a joke then you should have bypassed the teacher and gone straight to the head and board of governers.

ja9 Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:20

No way.

If this is true, teacher must be very old (sorry to be age-ist)

Go straight to head. Not acceptable.

fishfinger Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:39

noway
its crapola

hercules Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:44

Is this a joke?

Puff Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:58

QE, are you absolutely sure - might he have embellished the truth?

If it did happen, it's a sacking offence for the teacher almost certainly.

fishfinger Wed 13-Jul-05 21:31:59

its qe talking crap

Pixiefish Wed 13-Jul-05 21:32:25

Fing hyell. Report her to the head straight away. Unless it was a re-enactment of school in the Victorian era she shouldn'tr even have a flippin hat with a d on it in the class.

if no luck with head then general teaching council

QueenEagle Wed 13-Jul-05 21:32:42

It's absolutely true.

hercules Wed 13-Jul-05 21:32:44

If this isnt true then it's a really strange post.

fishfinger Wed 13-Jul-05 21:33:04

youare in england ant a state school
not doign a victorian day?

MarsLady Wed 13-Jul-05 21:33:19

Then be straight in there in the morning!

hercules Wed 13-Jul-05 21:33:57

You said it happened yesterday, what did you do about it today?

hercules Wed 13-Jul-05 21:34:35

I think Coddy's right. Must have been a themed day.

Lonelymum Wed 13-Jul-05 21:34:43

Does he deserve the book you "bought" him QE?
