The class is working silently
“Miss, I really need to fart. Can I step outside the class?”
“Concentrate on the work please, Bradley”
“OK then Miss. I’ve warned you”
The naughtier kids create a fuss first. They scream and laugh and run away. You’re not sure if they’re putting it on. But when you see little Arthur’s nose wrinkling, you know Bradley’s gone through with it*.
The next two minutes become a “Dick & Dom show” style farce.
They didn’t prepare you for that on teacher training. Seriously, o experienced teachers, how do you deal with this one?!
* I was going to say “followed through with it” but I realised that had certain connotations when it comes to flatulence.
