Good morning all, in the light of the weekend’s shocking behaviour, I have decided to introduce anti social distancing in class.
You will all be sitting at least two metres apart, until I see some improvement in your disgraceful behaviour. behaviour 🤬

Today’s puzzle is quite topical. It should please wila. I do hope she makes it to class today.

Because, deep down, I am a kind teacher, I have a little extra teaser for those who don't want to try the algebraic equation.
A man went into a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early. Everyone at the party who drunk the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die?

Morning Miss Marydoll, do you like your new yeller desk, chair and door knob? Luvverly innit? grin

Are we to pm you about the man and the poison too or can we post our answe here please?

Good morning, Chewy. I don't want to appear ungrateful, but my classroom looks like an explosion in a paint factory. 😱

PM, please Chewy otherwise others can't have a go.

Space question: Well done Mary51, class swot 🍎and Chewy was was close behind.🍎

Just to clarify, the man who left early wasn't the poisoner and the answer is related to the punch.
