    Pupils suffer panic attacks after school stages fake shooting of RE teacher in playg

    Children were left crying and traumatised after a school role play in which one of their teachers was apparently shot dead in the playground.
    The pupils, aged ten to 13, saw their religious education teacher run across a field and fall to the ground following a loud bang. Some were so upset that they were sick afterwards, parents said.
    The stunt was part of a science lesson designed to teach children how evidence is collected in criminal investigations. They were not told it was fake until ten minutes after the event.


    Children from Blackminster Middle School were left traumatised by the fake shooting in the playground, which can be seen on the left of the picture

    Last night Blackminster Middle School, in Evesham, Worcestershire, apologised to parents and admitted it had gone too far.
    The 'shooting' happened on Tuesday. More than 300 pupils were called to the hall and warned there was a gun somewhere in the school before being sent back to their classrooms.

    Not terribly bright. If my twins had been in that school, as a parent I would have been really pissed off.

    RE = Religious Education, why would the children be upset about that teacher being shot?
    Wonder if the Muslim children cheered

    Wonder if they did a Hazard Risk Assessment first?

    To teach children how evidence is gathered in a criminal investigation !! An effort at making science interesting for 12 year olds no doubt, and it has back-fired. Guess some will now take up mech. dr. or latin instead.
