Something I’ve heard a lot over the past few months is to always keep your pupils in sight but this afternoon, when I was covering in the early years playground, I forgot quite spectacularly. In the middle of a game of hide and seek in the playground with Maya I got asked to go inside to supervise for a little while.
Later on, as I was reading a story with some children on the carpet, I saw a cross little figure marching across the classroom. “Where have you been? I was hiding! It was so easy, I was behind the big slide.”
Poor Maya had been hiding for fifteen minutes! ALWAYS KEEP YOUR PUPILS IN SIGHT!
