We showed several books with pictures of the different things you could see in the various seasons and one of the pictures for Autumn was of two golf players playing in hail. So we go outside and look for clues as to what season it is. There had also been pictures of falling leaves, mushrooms springing up, and students wearing jumpers but still playing about madly. The kids started collecting leaves and talking about all of the things we saw. Screaming at snails. You know the drill.
Inside we asked a series of questions, and went through the pictures again. "Did we see falling leaves?" Yes. "Did we feel like going into the swimming pool, like these children?" No. "Did we see mushrooms?" Yes. "Hmm, did we see any hail?" Well, no, not today.
One of the new students raised his hand and said in absolute seriousness, "We didn't see any people playing Golf either."
I had a gigglefit for around ten minutes.
Oh dear. I'm glad I wasn't the only teacher in the room. I could barely breathe.
