WATCH: Home-learning infant school pupils vote to pie their teachers as reward for hard work
TEACHERS at a local infant school have been teaching their kids about the value of pie – with very messy results.
Home-learning pupils at Eling Infant School have been voting for the teacher they’d like to see pied on video as a reward for all their hard work during the week. Elissa Quinn and Ian McElhenny were first in the chair, to the screams of delight from bubbled pupils remaining at school.
Elissa said it’s a special Friday “treat” for the children.
“We usually have a treat from them every Friday during normal school times, so we thought we’d come up with something for those at home to thank them for all their hard work.
“It also maintains a link for them to the school while they’re at home. We’re so very proud of them.”
Elissa was spattered with a shaving foam ‘pie’, while Ian was smeared with the real thing, which proved a little trickier to remove.
She said there had been a definite increase in engagement from home-schoolers since the initiative, which this Friday makes a splash with a water bucket.
And with this week being the coldest so far this winter, Elissa says she has a plan: “I think mine will be warm water.”
Ideas for after half-term next week include a water pistol duel and TikTok dance challenge.
