    What phrases do you have to bite your lip and stop yourself from saying in the classroom?

    No sh*t Sherlock!

    What part of "Shut the f*** up" don't you understand?

    "I don't blame him for hitting you. I'd be tempted, in his position."

    'Hit him back!'
    'Unless there is a fire or someone is bleeding I don't want to know!'
    'Does my face look painted on?'

    On reflection I do actually use two of these quite regularly. [​IMG]

    "I'm not your Mother!" - Oh, actually I do use that one.

    "You can't be in the Gazelles group because you're too thick. You're going to be a Warthog for the rest of the year, I'm afraid."

    Just add 10. Stop counting on your bl***y fingers!
  12. Blimey - I use quite a few of those already (and also the other day "you really need to learn to keep your mouth shut") - hmm, I wondered why I get some surprised looks from them!

    'I DON'T CARE!!!' would be mine.

    and also

    'For F***'s sake. Can you really be THAT thick?'

    Actually both these could also be ones I'd like to be able to say to staff as well as some of my class.

  14. -pause- 'Sharp as a marble aren't you?'.

    Today in assembly we're going to sit quietly whilst everyone else is elsewhere. Whisper to the person next to you but no louder.

    'for the last f****** time, sit down, shut the f*** up, and do what i asked you to do without whinging like a 2 year old!'
    and 'if you haven't got your PE kit AGAIN you're doing it in your knickers and vest.'

    Hmmm, like milliebear I use a few of these already. Don't see a problem with many of them.
    I don't swear though. Not within hearing distance anyway.

    I've been teaching for ten years, I've seen ideas come and go, I've seen topics go and come, children need consolidation activities just to make sure they actually know their stuff, progress to me sometimes just means that they remember stuff we did last term and can use it so Mr. OFSTED inspector / head / observer, that's why we have spent the lesson revising multiplication because they keep forgetting it because quite frankly we spend so much time progressing that we don't focus on stuff like tables in classes before us and before you come and critcise me, try spending some time in the classroom as a full time teacher with the pressure of SATs, 2 sub levels progress and league tables!

    I would so love to say that - do you think I'd get away with it?

    Opened up a whole new section. I was only thinking of things we would love to say to the kids but things that we would love to say to other members of staff/observers... priceless!
