The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

Oh, well excuse me!

While doing a history activity, the children discussed things they used/needed when they were younger, things they use/need now and things they may use/need in the future. The girls have high ambitions for the future and listed things like shoes, perfume, jewellery (some of the rings and necklaces they drew; they’ll have to marry rich!!), fancy cars and one child even drew a horse drawn carriage! 

I prompted her and asked, ‘Is that on your wedding day, Rachael?’ With a flick of her hair, a roll of the eyes, she looked at me and said, 

“Um, no, Miss Rainbow, that is how I’ll be getting to work!”

Oh, well excuse me!



SURPRISE… Oh, wait!

It’s Easter at the moment and the children are very excited to be giving me gifts. One child said, 

“Miss Rainbow, I have an Easter surprise for you. It’s a secret! I got you a chocolate egg in a mug that’s pink with yellow flowers on it!”

I stood and smiled and the child then said, 

“Oh dear, it’s not a surprise now, is it?”

The child was so upset, I pretended I didn’t hear the first time! So cute!
