    A group of year one children were trying very hard to become accustomed to the first year at infant school.
    The biggest hurdle they faced was that the teacher insisted on NO baby talk! 'You need to use 'Big People' words,' she was always reminding them.
    She asked Chris what he had done over the weekend.
    'I went to visit my 'Nana',' said Chris.
    'No, you went to visit your GRANDMOTHER. Use 'Big People' words!' said the teacher.

    She then asked Mitchell what he had done.
    'I took a ride on a choo choo,' said Mitchell.
    She said, 'No, you took a ride on a TRAIN. You must remember to use 'Big People' words.'

    She then asked little Alec what he had done.
    'I read a book,' he replied.
    'That's WONDERFUL!' the teacher said. 'What book did you read?'
    Alec thought real hard about it, then puffed out his chest with great pride and said, 'Winnie the ****.'


    You'll have to fill the asterisks - might be deleted as it's not strictly within forum rules - so apols if mods feel it has to go.
