* Mark, a boy in my mixed-age KS2 class, told me that Bradley had kicked him. I went off to nvestigate.
"Bradley, did you kick Mark?" "No, Miss." "Are you telling me the truth, Bradley?" "Yes, Miss," came the reply. "I missed."
* Our Year 6 teacher was preparing her class for a test. All the children were working hard - with one exception. The teacher asked the boy why he hadn't done any work. "Well," came the reply. "You said that we weren't to use calculators for these, and this question says 'calculate'."
