Turkey Day – All Change!
April 24, 2014

D: I love it when it’s a country name day! When it’s a country name day and we’re all dressed up in the colours and decorated, that means we’re swapping classes and we only learn about one thing. But then in the afternoon we stop because we run out of teachers.
Mr T goes onto Google Earth and shows us where the country is. And then we go to Mrs W and she usually has some of that country food. We have to write on the list whether we like it or not.
Then in Mrs D’s class, we usually do some of that type of country dancing – so we’ll be doing some Turkey dancing.

Me: Sounds great. Turkey dancing – is it like Chicken dancing? Like this?

D: Ha yes! A turkey on a phone, dancing! Do you know what I used to think phones were for? I used to think they were just for talking. But, now I get to use your old one, now I know there’s more than one thing you do on them!


A new move

anewmoveD: I heard Gangnam Style at Edward’s house today – he’s got a CD player like me and it was on there – “Oop, oop, oop, Gangnam Style!” Oh look! I put my pyjama bottoms on inside-out and both my legs are stuck in one hole! Wouldn’t it be funny if, in the pictures for Gangnam Style, the man did that – and put his pyjama bottoms on inside out, with both his legs in one hole?

A smashing party

D: What’s Greek Night?

Me: It’s like a party and there will be greek music and greek dancing.

D: Awesome! I LOVE parties! Can we go?

Me: If you can stay awake until late – it doesn’t  start until 9.30.

D: I can, I CAN! What’s greek dancing?

Me: You’ll have to wait and see, it’s a special kind of dancing. Sometimes they even smash plates!

D: Why do they smash plates? – It’s naughty to break things.

Me: I don’t know, it’s just one of the things they do in a different country to celebrate. YOU shouldn’t do it.

D: Why?

Me: Because they’re adults and they buy the plates, so they’re allowed to smash them.

D: Do they break the ones we use for breakfast and tea?

Me: No – they use special ones.

D: …I don’t want to see the greek dancing, I think I’ll go to bed.
