The Box of Hats
‘Are we doing the hats today, Miss Potts?’
‘We might do, Sarah, if there’s time.’
‘Oh go on Miss, let’s just do hats today. Let’s not bother with that haunted house rubbish,’ said Sarah’s best mate, Amy.
‘Haunted house rubbish? You mean my very carefully planned scheme of work which has been rolled out to the whole department and which every Year Eight class is calling the best bit of drama they’ve ever done?’
‘Yes, Miss, everything’s rubbish compared to your box of hats.’
‘Okay, we’ll do the hats. Sarah, here’s the stock cupboard key. You and Amy go and fetch my precious box.’
‘My precious,’ said Amy.
‘Precious,’ echoed Sarah.
As the box of hats was produced and the incoming pupils saw it, a ripple of excitement spread to the whole class and they rapidly dumped their bags and coats and pulled up their chairs into a perfect circle around the box of hats.
