The Erinaceous Oxter – Mr Terry

Reflection on the importance of a wide vocabulary.

A message a goodwill from Collingwudo! Communication is a key priority at RHS – I hope you get my knottiness!

Times are very difficult now, but I do hope, especially for the examination year groups, that you are not suffering from kakorrhaphiophobia, please try not to worry, all will be fine! Lessons being online is never easy, but I do hope you are practising lamprophony in lessons and doing all you can to contribute and are not being pauciloquent! At least everything is submitted online, and you do not have to hand in a quire every week! Make sure there are no tittynopes in what you do hand in!

Your Teachers are making you put on your camera, I hope you are not worried about this because you have ulotrichous hair or that it is erinaceous, and you feel embarrassed!

Remember if you are not macrosmatic – get a test! Be safe, but don’t be a valetudinarian! You will be fine!

If you get too down – tickle your oxter!
