Teachers are angry

Look at this picture. Who are the people?

They are teachers. In the UK, teachers are angry. The government can’t pay all the teachers when they are old. So the teachers walk in London.

Because they are walking, schools are closed. Students have a day off school!

Are they happy or sad?

“I am happy,” says Adam, eight. “I like having a day off school. I play with my friends.”

“I am sad,” says Jill, nine. “I want to go to school!”

1. Do you like school? Why / why not?

2. You have a day off school. Are you happy or sad? Why? What do you do?

3. Is it good that the teachers are walking with signs? Why / why not?
