Don’t hurt hamsters
August 6, 2013

hurthamstersBoy: I can’t believe in Danny The Champion of the World, when Mr Victor Hazell was going to see the Doc and he kicked the dog out of the way instead of walking over it!

Mum: I know, it was cruel wasn’t it?

Boy: Yes – it was SO cruel.

Mum: Some people aren’t very nice like that, they can be very unkind to animals.

Boy: Yes, like Jane’s brother – he doesn’t like animals and he hates them SO much that he threw her pet hamster DOWN the stairs!

Mum: Really? A real, live hamster?

Boy: Yes! And the hamster had to go to hospital because it had broken its leg and to had to stay there for a whole week!

Mum: It sounds like it might have been safer there. That’s awful – how old is he?

Boy: He’s 4.

Mum: Why do you think he did it?

Boy: I don’t know – he just doesn’t like animals. Except skunks. He goes to a club called Animals Karate Club and they learn all about how to not be nice to animals there.

Mum: I doubt very much that there’s a club which encourages children to be nasty to animals – that would be wrong.

Boy: Well, half the time they’re telling the children what’s cruel and half the time they tell them about what’s good, and Jane’s brother only stays for the half which tells them about how to be cruel.

Mum: Do you think they give examples of cruel behaviour – just to explain what you shouldn’t do with animals – before they tell you how to care for them properly?

Boy: Yeeees. But he only stays for the bad stuff, then he goes home.

Mum: Oh dear.

Boy: Jane’s changed her code on the cage now, because she had a code on it before, but her brother was watching over her shoulder and saw it, so she’s changed it now. I like the cage – it’s got a tube that the hamster can play in and a zig-zag cardboard thing with steps in it that the hamster can climb up when he wants to go up to his bed for a nap. And he’s got a hamster wheel.

FLYING HEDGEHOG
It’s a hedgehog with a tree and some grass. I drew it the first ever day we were in Year 1, because we’re Hedgehogs.
Age 5

Boom! Shake the room
May 7, 2013

boomshakeMum: How was your trip to Whipsnade?

Son: Great! We watched the rhino in a special glass room. And the glass is stronger than the rhino thinks, because he bumped into it with his horn and it didn’t break. The room shook though, and all the people moved back!

Mum: I bet that was exciting wasn’t it?

Son: Not really, because the rhino farted. You know how farts can go through glass can’t they?

Mum: No.

Son: Well this fart could, and it was REALLY stinky!

Arty Animals – by Dylan

D: This is the one I did today – arty animals. You can do it different colours if you like, and you have to draw everything you can remember doing at Art Club. And I can remember the giraffe, the zebra, the chameleon and the peacock and the fish and the puppy.

Me: A puppy?

D: Yes. If we wanted, we could draw an animal that we haven’t done before too. And I drawed a puppy.

Shiny peacock

Shiny peacock

D: You know what that is don’t you?

Me: Is it a peacock?

D: Yes! And we had to use shiny paper coz that’s all they had to use.

Zebra race

zebras

Zebras

D: They’re all zebras – that’s a pattern.

Me: Why are they all on top of one another?

D: They’re not! They’re just lined up. Do you know why that one’s a bit further back? ‘Cause he’s a bit slow.

Describing words
March 22, 2013

describingwordsD: Mum, do you like rats?

Me: Well they’re not my FAVOURITE animal, but they’re OK.

D: Do you like cats or do you like dogs?

Me: I like both, but I probably prefer dogs because they can understand us more.

D: I prefer cats. What do cats do when we tell them something?

Me: Generally ignore it. Unless it’s about food.

D: Oh – yes, if it’s food they come RUNNING in…. Well, John has a rat and it BIT his finger!

Me: Ah – rats are not so nice when they bite.

D: That’s what I thought. And I’ve got a cough that’s as nasty as rats that bite!

Rabbit road trip

Rabbit rescue – Mar 2013

We all had to do this – it’s when you draw something you find on your doorstep and you don’t know where to take it. I found a rabbit on my doorstep [left]. And I decided that I needed to take some pizza, a backpack and a map [centre]. And I took the rabbit to Africa [right].

Dog talk
November 19, 2012

D: There was something really funny that I saw in an advert. There was this trick – it was number 21. It was something that you put on the floor and then a mummy came along and saw it and told the dog off because it was a pretend poo! How funny is that? Because the dog didn’t know what she said and he just looked at her like, “Huh?’!
