SECRETS FROM THE


They can make you laugh or drive you to despair, but there’s no question that pupils come out with some real humdingers! Here are a few of our favourites…

five-year-olds about circuses. I asked them what the man in the middle of the ring running the circus was called. One child called out “the Prime Minister”!’


Primary school Teacher, Cheshire


Pixies and potatoes... While exploring the topic of


stereotypes, one Year 8 student really went to town!

Blood Brothers, pupils were asked to research Hollywood during the 50s and 60s and one student wrote, “Marilyn Monroe was bearded, which helped with her acting”. This is my favourite ever comment!’


Secondary Drama Teacher, Shropshire


Bake your mind up ‘One of our 6-year-olds asked me if he


could join baking club. I asked him to get his mum to tick “cookery” on the school clubs form, and when a place came up he could join... “No, no, no... not ‘cookery’ club, ‘baking’ club, where someone says, ‘Do you want to wear uniform to school?’ and some people say yes and some say no...” “Ah, you mean ‘debating’ club!” I said!’


Learning Support Assistant, independent prep school, Essex


You asked for that! ‘While taking a lesson on


descriptive words and similes I used two conkers – a new, shiny one and an old wrinkly one. A little girl sweetly said that the new one was bright and shiny like their faces, and the other one was wrinkly like mine!’


Retired primary school Teacher, East Sussex
