Cool customer

THIS week, the reading comprehension SATs test for Year Four pupils at our school included the question: 'The word "cool" can have two different meanings. What are they?' We were amused and enlivened to read the response of one nine-yearold boy: 'It can mean supercool or ... Constipated Overweight Old Lady.' He'll get no marks for that from Education Secretary Michael Gove, but shows clear evidence of wit and creativity — valuable skills for life.
