Powerful pictures

powerfulpicsMum: What did you do at school today?

Boy: We made cards – for everyone who’s leaving.

Mum: Who’s leaving?

Boy: I don’t know. We had to say what we liked doing best from the year. I put, “I liked the cooking”.

Mum: Ah – because you’re all leaving the class in a couple of weeks and will be going to your next one in September?

Boy: Yes. I really want Mrs C back.

Mum: What does Mrs C do?

Boy: She helps the teacher in the classroom. She works REALLY hard. She does really lovely work. She’s been there since it was built – on the FIRST day, when it opened, she was there and she went in and started working. She doesn’t even take breaks! If she was THROWN out and told to go away – she would just go back in and work. Once, she was told to go away for a break, and she didn’t!

Mum: Mrs C sounds like she likes her work. What work does she do?

Boy: I don’t know, she’s always too busy working and we’re always too busy learning… I know she cuts out lots of pictures.

Mum: Why does she cut out pictures – for the class to use?

Boy: No, she just cuts them out all the time. I don’t know what she uses them for. Mysterious…
