Lions and Angels

I asked one of my pupils to write the Learning Objective for my lesson onto my whiteboard today.

I began giving out books with the usual instructions, “Date, Learning Objective and starter activity please.” Nothing new there; they hear the same thing every time they enter my room. Routines are good.

But today, I hear whispers…

“What the HELL!”

“Is she for real??”

“Miss has lost the plot…”

I put on my stern face and told the class to settle, not understanding what the problem was. Until, of course, I looked over someone’s shoulder at the learning objective written at the top of the page.

‘To be able to measure lions and angels’

All of a sudden, I’m imagining a very different lesson to the one I’d planned…
