A primary school teacher was left cracking up after asking her new class to write down one thing she should know about them before she starts teaching them and one child did not hold back

If there’s one thing we really love about kids, it’s that they aren’t afraid to say what they think.

And while sometimes their words can be brutally honest, most of the time they’re just downright hilarious.

One teacher recently found herself on the receiving end of one of these sorts of comments after she asked the children in her new class to each write down one thing they thought she should know about them before teaching them.

Most of the responses were pretty unassuming, but one kid really did not hold anything back with their answer.

The primary school teacher from Wales, known only as Miss McCarthy, found the answer so amusing she shared a look at it on social media.

In a post on Twitter, she wrote: “I asked my new class to write one thing they would like me to know before I start teaching them…”

Alongside this was a photo of the child’s reply which read: “I take a long time to do a poo. My record is 2hrs 15mins.”

The tweet quickly went viral online, garnering over 26,000 likes and more than 2,000 retweets.

Many people also took the time to reply to the post and share their thoughts.

One person said: “When my son was six the Teacher asked them to say something about their parents. My lad said ‘When my dad gets out the bath he jumps about and makes his willy dance’.”

Another replied: “I’m crying. That is the funniest thing I’ve read on here!”

A third proclaimed: “Never dull being a primary teacher. I once had to ask the question ‘Why did you put jelly beans in this boy’s ear?’ To which the reply was ‘I put some in my own ear first!!!”

And for all those concerned the child might be suffering with bowel problems, it turns out the note was nothing more than a joke.

Miss McCarthy later posted an update, adding: “Class teacher and parents have confirmed this is not a real problem and was written for a laugh.”

Clearly, this little one is going to be the class clown!
