Ben came up to Mrs Thieme with a very serious look on his face, “someone said a really really bad word!”
“Oh dear” thought Mrs Thieme as a lot of bad words went through her head!
‘It was nuts” pronounced Ben!. Callan joined to support his friend “yes I heard it and it is a bad word.”
Mrs Thieme was intrigued “Why is nuts a bad word?”
Callan thought about this “Well animals eat them but there are no animals in the classroom”.
Cameron who was sitting close by decided to add some more information.
“I know an animal that eats nuts. It is a squirrel.”
We all agreed, that this was true and Ben ended the conversation by saying
Well I think its a bad word because people are allergic to it”.
Mrs Thieme loves the conversations we have!
