Looks a fun way of winding up my Y8 tutor group

I have just done the psychic test on my son - he was so freaked he was jumping up and down shrieking his head off.
Definitely a good but totally harmless prank for winding up an innocent at form time!

Ah I get it now! I only went and looked at the video first (and got everything wrong!) before I looked at the explanation one

We have had a lot of fun with this today - pupils generally fall for it hook, line and sinker!
I am bringing in a list of runners and riders for Saturday's Grand National for some of them to have a look at tomorrow...

Got my year 9's a treat today with the ESP and the Penguins before they clicked with the spaghetti video.

My mixed year 5 to 8 class loved it!
A nice change to nagging them about ties and tucking shirts in.

Our IT tech guys put a message on the intranet that googleearth were photographing our school during breaktime today. I went outside and saw lots of stupid looking kids looking up and waving at the sky! lol

Managed to get three classes with the ESP thing - chose one individual who thought they had the mond capacity for it - often nominated by their friends!  Made it even more sweet!  Got one poor girl with the penguins video - she genuinely thought it was real!!  Aaahhhh!  Bless!
