Sing!
July 20, 2013

singBoy: I remembered one of the other songs we sang in the playground today – not Over The Rainbow or Doe a Deer. I don’t know what it’s called though – shall I sing it to you?

Mum: Yes, go on!

Boy: [sings]
Every day, we learn and play,
Finding ways to get along,
Finding out what  life’s about,
Everybody moving on!

That’s all I can remember.

The great outdoors
May 13, 2013

greatoutdoorsSon: I LOVE Forest School! We got to play ‘1-2-3 Where Are You?’

Mum: And where were you?

Son: In the forest, silly! And there was a Cloak tree.

Mum: Do you mean an Oak tree?

Son: No! It was a Cloak tree – like the Cloakroom at school, but outside. We had to hang our hi-vis jackets on it.

SPARKLY TREE
It’s a tree. We did it in winter when there was snow on the ground, because we couldn’t go out into the playground. We hoped to, but it was too snowy and the teacher wouldn’t let us. So, we stayed inside and did a picture of a tree. All the glitter’s snow, apparently.
Age 5.

Oh happy day!
April 5, 2013

ohhappydayD: Do you know why today is going to be a happy day?

Me: Why?

D: Because, the sun is out and when I blink my eyes I see a happy face behind my eyelids – two eyes there and a big smile. So it’s going to be a happy day.

Me: That’s good.

D: …But then, do you know why it might not be a happy day?

Me: Oh, why?

D: Just LOOK at those BIG rain clouds. So it might not be a nice day… But maybe it will be a happy day this morning, when the sun’s out, and then a sad day this afternoon when it’s rainy.

Me: It won’t a sad day this afternoon – you’ve got Art Club!

D: But it will rain at play time! The rain clouds might think, “We should go away.” Or they might think, “We should get some water down there so they can live.” So there’s two choices.

Angry Birds – Feb 2013

D: Today I have been playing on Angry Birds. I played it on M’s phone!

‘Sno fun
January 29, 2013

snofunMe: Look it’s been snowing again overnight – look at the cars!
D: Will there be snow at school today?
Me: Well yes – they might have cleared a path, but there’ll be snow.
D: Because the other day, a man came and sprinkled snow dust all over the place and it MELTED the snow into ice and we’re not allowed to play on the ice. There was just a line of snow left and all the children were on one side of the line and all you could do was walk – up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down on the line. It was sooooo boring!

Fantasy football

Fantastic footballer – Jan 2013

D: We had to draw a picture of something we’re fantastic at.
I drawed that I’m fantastic at playing football. That’s me, with the ball in purple.
That’s the goal [in light blue, on the right], and I’m kicking the ball into the goal!
They’re all people who are trying to get the ball so they can get a goal, but they can’t!

The perfect Snow Angel
January 19, 2013

D: I like doing Snow Angels… How do I get up? …Mum, will you lift me straight up please, so I don’t break it?

1. Wait until it snows
2. Lie on ground
3. Flap arms and legs up and down
4. Levitate and move away

Which route to choose?

D: They’re all wiggly slides and that black one’s a bumpy one – it’s got bumps all the way down.
