Sticky business for teachers
The half-term ended in a sticky situation for three teachers at Canterbury Primary School.
Ben Hawkins, Craig May and Chris Kee found themselves on the receiving end of a gunging from children celebrating their success in a reading challenge.
The ‘victims’ were subjected to a dousing in custard, porridge, jelly and Angel Delight during the last assembly.
The gathering was also the chance for the pupils to see a hamper of books they had won as part of the Buster’s Book Club home reading scheme, run by the KM Charity Team.
Teacher Emily Kelderis said: “We have a real mixture of children and we are doing everything we can to get them to read. I see children starting school and not having the confidence to pick up books - some of them don’t even speak English. But by the end of the year, I see them really excelling with their reading.”
