As a teacher one of the most important skills is being able to keep a straight face at times. This is why.
I was doing an assessment this afternoon on a pupil with special needs

Me: What is a dinosaur?

Pupil: A dinosaur is an animal that was around in 1998 but I'm not sure of the exact date.

    Second best quote from a year 6 girl.

    "She just called me Madonna. I'm not an old creaky popstar"

    Oh Slosh, that takes me back! I would love to post my favourite real-life quote but the forum rules forbid: it came from a 7 year old boy in my class of mixed 6 - 7 years old, uttered in St Saviours, Knightsbridge, on a Monday morning as the vicar was wandering down the aisle to 'do' our weekly church service for the whole school.

    My favourite written howler is 'Russians use a Acrylic alphabet.' One of my former pupils called apostrophes 'sky commas' - isn't that a lovely phrase? DD
