This is most certainly one of them.
Its time for PHSE.
Topic: Parts of the body. ( what could possibly go wrong!!)
So, off we go.
I start off with the usual speal.
As soon as I mention body parts, laughter trickles around the circle.
Ok, this can only end one way- disastrously!
Teacher: ” Right today we are learning about the correct names of parts of the body”.
” Who can start me off”.
I realise this is asking for trouble, let’s be honest what these ‘asbo’ kids don’t know about body parts, is not worth knowing.
It’s all good learning, after all, these kids are going to need to know the difference between their anus and there urethra, otherwise, how else are the going to hide their drugs.
A sea of hands rise into the air, it just goes to prove, if you teach a subject that’s familiar to them, there’s no end to there talents.
I choose the children wisely, ” Bum, willy, fairy(WTF!), leg, bum cheeks etc, etc” They continue without falter.
Teacher: ” Well done, now, these are all words that we choose to call our body parts, however they also have technical names that your doctor might use”.” Lets see if we can label this diagram with the correct names”
Off they go again ” bottom, penis, breast, thigh, fairy(?)”
Seriously no… please don’t tell me at 9 years old, this freak thinks her fanny is called a fairy.
Ok, I see they are going to need some help with this.
Teacher: ” Right lets start with bottom, our bottom is made up of lots of different parts, the cheeks that we sit on, and the part that we poo out of. Who can tell me what that is called, it begins with ‘a’ ?
They sit there, red-faced and shocked that they can legitimately say penis and vagina, and not get told off. The hands begin to rise.
There’s one hand higher than the others, the owner about to explode with excitement, finally a subject they understand.
I bravely go with it.
Teacher: ” Yes, jazz, ‘a’ is for…..”
Pupil: ” Arse” A beaming smile on face, there is no way that answer could be wrong, her Dad uses it all the time.
Teacher: ” No, not quite. ‘A’ is for anus”
What the fuck am I doing, Its ok kids, stick with what you know.
Does it really matter if a fanny is a fairy, and a bum is an arse.
Lets face it, these kids have more to think about.
I abandon the lesson.
Anyone want to take their ‘trouser snake’ for a piddle?
