We all remember how great supply teachers are, kids can scent blood in the water from the moment they tentatively walk through the door, as they turn to write their name on the blackboard the first fountain pen has been flicked, leaving ink stains up the back of his jacket and within minutes he’s mumbling away while everyone else chats amongst themselves while attempting to permanently blind him by angling the sun off their watches. Well you wouldn’t do that for Sir David Attenborough.
At least, that’s the bet that the BBC are taking with their newly announced lockdown curriculum. The naturalist will be donning mortar board and gown to become the nation’s geography and biology teacher as part of the 14-week summer term schedule aimed at homeschooling the nation.
The big A will be joined by other famous (but not as famous) faces. Professor Brian Cox will be teaching science, Manchester City footballer Sergio Aguero will be leading the old Espanol lessons and, in a surprise appointment at the BBC High – Danny Dyer (off of EastEnders) will be stepping in to teach history.
The only thing that’s bothering us is… would biology teacher Attenborough have to teach sex education? Ew! Make it stop!!
