Teaching The Teacher

Picture of Teaching The Teacher
If you could swap places with your teacher for the day, what would you teach your teacher to do? Would you teach her how to … chew an apple with no front teeth?… sing out loud in assembly?… dive-bomb into the swimming pool? Through the imagination of one of her students, the much-loved Ms Cherry finds out just what it is like to be little again.
