‘Lazy’ teacher slammed after accidentally setting rude task in awkward blunder

A teacher has been slammed after accidentally setting their pupils a very rude homework task.

The unnamed teacher at Holderness Academy and Sixth Form College in Hull, unknowingly sent an assignment containing a swear word to their year seven class of 11 and 12-year-old pupils.

The worksheet was supposed to help students to draw an owl, but instead, the teacher accidentally sent them a rude meme, reports Hull Live.

The well-known meme, which has been around for a decade, shows the first instruction as “draw some circles”.

Unfortunately for the teacher, the second and final instruction on the meme is for students to “draw the rest of the f***ing owl”.

Although pupils found the blunder “hilarious”, parents are less than impressed.

A dad, who wished to remain anonymous, said it was “lazy teaching.”

He said: “It’s just lazy isn’t it?

“The teacher has clearly just pulled off the first thing that comes up when you put ‘how to draw an owl’ into Google and not even bothered to check it, before sending it to hundreds of pupils.

Although the dad acknowledges that teachers are under pressure he says: “It clearly had not been checked before it was sent out.”

Headteacher at the school Mr Wilson apologised for any offence caused by the latest homework blunder: “A member of staff was browsing the internet for some material to support the students’ learning with pencil drawing.

“The offensive word on the worksheet was not spotted and was posted as part of some scheduled work for the class.

“As soon as this was realised, the work was immediately taken down from our remote learning platform and an apology sent to parents and students.

“Our staff have received very positive feedback for our high-quality remote provision but we wholeheartedly apologise for any offence caused.”

A sister of one of the pupils said many of the students found the mistake “hilarious.”

She said: “This was sent to my younger sister in the home learning. They found it hilarious, as did all of the year seven students who put it in a group chat.

“They [my parents] found it funny but they were a bit mad that the teacher had not even read the work she set.”
