Diversity at school

Boy: That’s our school and that’s all the children in front – in different colours, because we’re all different.

Age 6

Defensive, extinct and blind

D: Hedgehogs are spiky and they roll up into balls.
Me: Yes, when they’re scared, or when they’re sleeping.
D: Or when they see a shadow and think it’s a dinosaur.
Me: They wouldn’t see any dinosaurs – there aren’t any dinosaurs now, they’re extinct – they all died a long time ago.
D: Why did they all die?
Me: Because the weather changed and they couldn’t find any more food.
D: Was it rainy?
Me: No, it was icy – and they couldn’t find any food in the ice.
D: Oh… Mum, do bats live now?
Me: Yes they do.
D: Well I never see any!
Me: That’s because they sleep in the day and come out to play at night.
D: Why do they come out at night and not in the morning?
Me: Because – you know how they can’t see? – Well it’s quieter at night, so they can hear more.
D: Like snoring?
