I’ve mentioned before, but working with children is hilarious. Don’t get me wrong, my life as a teacher can be very hard and incredibly stressful. However, they often come out with little gems, so I thought I’d document the ones that make me want to laugh out loud. I hope you like this feature!
When looking at a picture of a cow’s udders:
‘That cow has a lot of winkies!’
- In conversation with me about a pregnant member of staff:
Child: ‘She looks really pregnant today!’
Me: ‘She does!’
Child: ‘You look pregnant a lot, but it’s just a water baby because you drink so much water!’
- When reading a book about a mermaid with tentacles
Child: ‘I didn’t know mermaids had testicles.’
- When discussing changes in our lives
Me: So what changes can happen in our lives?
Me: Yes, you’re right, that is a change!
Child: What about those tadpoles that go in the girl?
Me: Woah, yes… moving on!
- When asking a question in the playground…
Child: I feel weird.
Child: I was told that a baby came out of a girl’s bum!
Me: I can assure you…it doesn’t!
