No, I haven't got a video of pets wearing hats.

This "awww" moment came this afternoon as my S3 class were queuing up outside my classroom.  I had asked a general "how has your day been today?" and had a few responses from others, then one of the girls said "good now we're at maths!" with a big smile on her face.  "Yes" said her friend.  "We were saying at lunchtime how much we are enjoying maths now you are teaching us." "Yes" said the first girl. "You make it so easy.." She saw the expression on my face freeze, and hastily added "no, not easy - but we have learned so much with you." "Yes, I've learned so much maths this year." I mumbled something about it having been their hard work that had made the difference.

What a delightful moment!
