Deleting phonics
April 16, 2013

deletingphonicsSon: I wish it was a school day.

Mum: Are you looking forward to seeing all your friends again?

Son: Yes… Except for phonics. I hate phonics. I wish they could just DELETE phonics.

Mum: Why don’t you like phonics? Ah that’s where you make lots of different sounds isn’t it? Where you go “ai”, “ee”, “oo”, “th”, “ng”?

Son: Yeah – it’s boring. We just do the SAME thing over and over and over again.

Mum: Do you find it easy or hard?

Son: It’s easy. And boring.

Half-term trophy! Nov 2012

D: I won the trophy at Sports Camp!! I dreamed about winning the trophy every night! It’s for doing my best and helping other people… I didn’t just help the just small children, but the big ones as well and EVEN the oldest one there – she was WAY more than ten!

Holiday essentials
July 28, 2012

D: What’s a travel kettle?
Me: It’s a little mini-kettle so I can make a cup of tea when we’re on holiday in the hotel.
D: But they might already have a machine for making a cup of tea.
Me: They do have kettles, but you have to pay lots of money to borrow them. I want to take a little one with us so I don’t run out of money for other things.
D: Like ice cream?
Me: Yes, ice cream and kids club – it would be a disaster if I had no money left for you to go to kids club!
D: I LOVED kids club in France! We have to MAKE SURE we get a travel kettle.
