Had Mrs Winafield [sic] today.
We did a newspaper. Mine was all up to date of course…
We had loads of supply teachers at primary school. I clearly thought nothing of it. The “make a newspaper” task was given to us more than once – probably whenever we had a supply teacher. It feels like the kind of “this’ll keep them quiet” busywork that finds a natural home in their armoury. I sound quite arrogant here – “…of course” – but I was only taking a pride in my work.
