Raiders of the Lost Chalk

Professor Assessor had a problem in class one day – he wanted to write something on the chalkboard but someone had taken the chalk away ! No matter how much the students looked, no – one could find the chalk – and the class had to be re – booked. Lunch break would have to be rescheduled late – and all the students would have to wait. Wot no chalk ! How could class begin ? Professor Assessor called the headmaster, who suggested he looked in the bin. When he did he banged his chin … Wot no chalk ! How could he write ? How could a Professor show his students he was frightfully bright ? The students looked in a pile of books, the desks in class wobbled and the rulers shook. But still no chalk ! For class, it was a must, so Professor Assessor called in Inspector Spectre, who with a magnifying glass, looked for a trail of dust. Whilst the pupils went off for recreation, Professor Assessor assessed the situation. Inspector Spectre had studied at one of the Professor’s schools, so he knew where the best hiding places were – and all about the school rules. Search first in the bike shed, suggested the head. Or in the school canteen, the dinner lady said. Although the Inspector read every piece of graffiti on the wall, Lucy Lastic, the teacher of gymnastic, gave the Inspector the best clue of all – when she told the sleuth to look in the sports hall. There, the cricket team had just scored a four – and the umpire was holding the chalk in the pocket of the trousers that he wore – they didn’t need to search anymore !
