Teachers Pick their Noses

Teachers Pick their Noses

£5.99

And for all you fainthearted souls out there that are feeling queasy at the mere thought of your teacher digging for bogeys – don’t panic! This collection also includes lots of ‘non-bogey’ poems. There are poems about footballing hedgehogs; flea-ridden pirates; chocolate cakes that take over the world; a girl who can’t stop sleeping; and the long awaited return of My Silly Daddy. Not to mention the Recycle Monster living in the garden shed.

Product Description

Have you ever seen your teacher picking their nose? I bet you haven’t. But the truth is it’s their favourite thing to do in the whole world. In fact, if nose picking was an Olympic sport, teachers would win all the gold medals. Read this book and discover what your teachers REALLY get up to when you’re out in the playground.

I'm becoming the Patron of Reading at LOTS of schools recently, and I'm loving it! Consequently, I've written a new poem about books. Here it is.

Oh, and if you're wondering what the sound is in the background, that's our puppy Pebbles chewing on a toy car!!!

In the last half hour two, of my friends have posted about their worries and anger at their (young) children having pressure of work from school - both in the form of homework and also practise Sats.

It's made me think: how much good does all this do? Our school's headteacher pretty much put an end to homework last year and it's made things SO much better for our whole family.

Instead, the children are given a big list of projects at the start of a topic and they can choose what they like the look of and which ones to do over the course of a half term or term.

It's brilliant! Last year Violet did two PowerPoint presentations off her own back. Mabel created an amazing scented garden from a box. She still has it. I saw it her bedroom tonight!

And yet...

One of my friends writes...

'So sick of homework!
My daughter has:

*Spellings (some stupid ones)
*not one but TWO reading books
*a double sided comprehension sheet
*10 words to learn
*maths and literacy sheets! Every week!

Is it just me l?!!!'🤢'

Is it just her?

I'm willing to bet that it's not!

High Bank Hi Jinks!

I was back at one of my favourite schools today - High Bank in Liversedge. It was them, remember, for whom we collected all those books earlier in the year. I just LOVE this school. I was reminded once again...
