Little Miss Teacher lives in Cleverland, in a house that is full of books, pens, papers and computers. Â She works in the cleverest, most amazing school in Cleverland, called Hovingham Primary School. She teaches the cleverest class in the whole school, Year 2, and the children in her class are, of course, all very clever!
Her best friend is called Little Miss Sparkle Dust, and not only is she extraordinarily clever, but she is also able to do magic too! Just imagine that!
One day Little Miss Sparkle Dust noticed that Little Miss Teacher wasnâ€™t looking very happy. â€œWhatâ€™s wrong?â€ she asked her friend.
â€œI know all the children in the class are very clever, but I donâ€™t know who really is trying to be the best that they can be, and really aiming high!â€ replied Little Miss Teacher.
â€œI think I have got one of my cleverest ideas! I will do an astonishingly amazing, magical spell so that all the children who are working hard will have sparkly, bright red noses!â€ answered Little Miss Sparkle Dust.
â€œOh, what a fantastic, magical idea that is! Did you know that tomorrow is Red Nosed Day too! â€œhappily laughed Little Miss Teacher.
â€œAbra, cadabra, wizzi woo, if youâ€™re aiming high, there will be a red nose on you!â€ chanted Little Miss Sparkle Dust as she gently waved her magic wand.
The first child to arrive at school was Mr Helpful. Usually he came in the classroom with a big beaming smile, but today he looked a little worried.
â€œMy nose has gone all red and sparkly!â€ he exclaimed.
Little Miss Magical explained to him that she had done one of her extraordinary magic tricks and that every child who is being the best they can be will have a red sparkly nose!
â€œThatâ€™s great,â€ replied Mr Helpful. â€Iâ€™m so proud of my red nose now; it lets everyone know Iâ€™m aiming high!â€
Next arrived the twin sisters, Little Miss Love and Little Miss Lovely and their friends Little Miss Wonderful and Little Miss Clever. They all had sparkly red noses! Mr Helpful told them about the magic, and they all smiled and sat down and started busily to learn their spellings and practise their tables.
By the time Little Miss Teacher did the register everyone had arrived and can you guess what she saw when she looked at all the children sat on the carpet?
Yes! They all had red noses! Every single child had a bright red sparkling red nose!
The children looked at Little Miss Teacher and Little Miss Sparkle Dust who were smiling happily, and guess what they saw!
YES! They had bright red, sparkly noses too!
From that day on, once every two years all the children who are being the best that they be, appear at their schools dressed all in bright red or wearing red noses, and they all remember how lucky they are to go to school in Cleverland.
