There I was, teaching a lesson, when I happen to glance through the door to the corridor. What do I see (after a lightning fast double-take)? A magpie, strolling along, happy as Larry (whoever Larry is). Just as it passes from view another member of staff appears in careful pursuit.
"Second time this week," he informs me, and the crowd of children who have now gathered to watch. "I'm sure it's the same bird."
The pair disappeared into Year 2, where goodness only knows what mayhem ensued, and I was left trying to stop children from wanting to go 'to the toilet', (i.e. have another look at the bird).
Anyway, two weeks today, and hopefully I will feel the same as Larry (and the magpie).
