Before Class

Nina is sitting in her chair, clutching a red apple, Frances and Sarah are annoying Jake, who is boasting about his £500 laptop that he takes to school. Poppy is playing with a ball, Rushabh throws a football at her and she screams. Poppy storms out, sobbing "I'm telling the teacher!". Rushabh is doing his "innocence" act, Rosalind is smiling and whinnying while she reads a book about horses. Rose is calling "giddy up! Giddy up! Horsie Rosalind!". Oliver's pretending to be a one-eyed boogie-dancer and oh, he slips on a smooth part of the floor and starts crying, red-eyed, red-faced and crimson-eared. With a small bruise on his back. Alexandra is holding the 'Funky' show with Jonathan. Jonathan rolled back the blinds and Alexandra shouts "here we have... the Funky Show!". Tom D. and Tom L. are singing their new-crazed song, previously named 'madness' but renamed 'Tom et Tom', Louis-Jack is drawing faces of girls with a big black marker all over the walls. He uses tipp-ex to cover it up. Attending a "post-class tripping contest" is Jacob and Josephine. Josephine's score is three and Jacob's score is fifty-three.

Oh, I'm being very very good and I'm writing this all over the ceiling with my magical unremovable black marker.
