"Claire has fantastic humour… Claire bullies me. Nicky is always keen to share her ideas… Nicky shouts out in class all the time.

"Stuart is very energetic… Stuart's done a runner 62 times this year. Alice is a very observant member of the class… Alice loves to know everybody's gossip.

In a video, uploaded on TikTok by user @kboyce614, the teacher explains how the parents' choice of baby name was so bizarre she had to ring up her sister and tell her about it.

Unfortunately, this time she had no idea and hazarded a guess that it was pronounced, "Ay–ya" but the kid was quick to correct her and said: "It's Adasha."
