    'I know you're going on study leave now so I'll take in these essays, mark them, and then post them home to you before the exam' - my English Lit teacher who marked maybe 1 essay over the 2 year course and still has my essay notebook.

    I remember when my primary school said to me the school once had a boy who swung on his chair and cracked his head. Everyone in my year didn't dare to swing on their chair until we found out when we left that it was all lies. Lol.

    They ended up saying that to at least 3 other classes.

    That the class hamsters (about 6 in total) ran away to a hamster farm. 3 months later, we see a pile (literally) of dead hamsters on top of each other underneath the stairs, considering who the teacher was that looked after them - I wouldn't be surprised if they jumped to their deaths from the stairs on purpose.

    This is a golden thread. Join in with the discussion before 26 August 2016 to be in with the chance of winning an iPad air 2!

    I remember being in reception, so only about 4 or 5, and our teacher told us that a rocket was going to the moon that day and if we worked really really quietly we'd be able to hear it take-off..

    It totally worked. We were silent for the whole day, but never did hear that rocket go off.



    What are the fibs your teachers told you at school to get you to be quiet, or stop asking silly questions?


    Other golden threads:

    1. List the fibs your teacher told you at school

    2. What's your ultimate summer tune?

    3. Which GCSE subject can you not wait to ditch?

    4. Sum up how you’re feeling about results day in a meme or gif

    5. How do you plan to celebrate your exam results?

    6. Starting uni: what are you most excited about?

    7. One essential piece of advice you'd give to someone starting their A-levels

    8. What's the one thing will get you through results day?


    The competition runs from 3 August to 23:59 on 26 August 2016. The random draw will be made on 30 August 2016.

    Saw my teacher in town when I was in year 5 (Just finished year 11, now) and shouted 'Hey Sir'. He didn't look up or say Hi back. Went back to school the next day and confronted him about not saying Hi to me but he said it was his twin brother and he had no idea who I was. I said sorry and up until I left that school in year 6 I kept asking him how his twin brother was. It was only until I was in year 8 that we had a new librairian at school. I made converstation with her and told her the primary school I attended. she told me that my year 5 teacher was her brother. I told her of the 'run in' at town and asked how her two brothers were and she told me that she did not have a two brothers just one and that my year 5 teacher did not have a twin. I felt so annoyed and embarrassed.
