Worry-bucket Wednesday


Today was "Worry-Bucket Wednesday" in my class of 9 year olds. It means that if they have any worries, no matter how big or how small, they write them down and put them in the bucket. Then if I can , I'll sort it out or at least reassure them.

Today's bucket produced a worry that I unfortunately can't do much about.

Dear Teacher,
I am worried about Brexit because I don't really understand it and I worry what's going to happen.

What could I say to that? You, me and a couple of million others.
To misquote Roy Scheider in Jaws

I think I'm going to need a bigger bucket!
