Pip passes the social networking test
Step forward Pip Davenport, the made-up 19th century fairground ride inventor, whose biography Year 6 were invited to compose in the writing test last week.
Pip's page on the social networking site appeared within two days of pupils putting their pens down.
Facebook groups which Pip has joined include "It's Time to Stop Sats" (34 members) and "Primary Teachers - Resources, stress relief".
At the time of writing he had only one friend, Citronella Garnet. However, these happen to be the names of two characters featured in this year's key stage 2 tests.
One teacher on the TES online staffroom caught this line in a pupil's test: "Pip and his new wife lay down on the beach and slowly made love. Nine months later, she had a baby called Lee."
Another pupil had Pip dying in a hospital of MRSA. What would the Victorians have thought?
