A FREE STORY – Age 6

“Once there lived a boy called Dylan and his mum and it is a lovely mum.”

Mum: That’s lovely!

Boy: Oh yeah that – we did it at the Free Writing Table – do you know the Free Writing Table?

Mum: Yes – that’s the table outside the classroom isn’t it?

Boy: Yes, and you’re allowed to write about whatever you want.

Mum: Ahh – and you chose to write that?

Boy: Well, Jaimie was there as well and he wrote it. He said, “I’m going to write a story about you!” And then he wrote that.

Mum: Oh. OK. What did YOU write about then?

Boy: Nothing – I didn’t have time.

DIVERSITY AT SCHOOL

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

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 ┬álife’s about,
Everybody moving on!

That’s all I can remember.

Headless newt
July 15, 2013

headlessnewtMum: Ah – you’re new teacher will be Mr T.

Boy: Yes! I’m going to be in Newts.

Mum: Are you happy about that?

Boy: Yes, he’s the only boy teacher and he let me make cookies!

Mum: You did cooking at school with the Year 2s? Did everyone do cooking?

Boy: No! Year 2s were visiting THEIR new teachers, and Mr T gave us all two jobs to do when we went to visit him.

Mum: Ah! And what were your jobs?

Boy: Making cookies and writing.

Mum: I see. What did you write?

Boy: I writed “Where is the newt’s head?” Because there was a picture of a newt and it looked like it didn’t have a head, but then I saw it head WAS there, because I could see its eyes. Mr T said he thought it was a brilliant sentence though.

All mixed up

allmixedupBoy: We had maple cake for pudding at school today – do you know maple cake?

Mum: Is it made with maple syrup?

Boy: No, it’s half chocolate and half plain and then it’s all mixed up together into one cake.

Mum: Ah – do you mean maple cake or marble cake?

Boy: Marble cake – that’s it! I love marble cake, it’s DELICIOUS! I was BURSTING for double pudding, but I couldn’t because I didn’t eat my peas, and you have to eat EVERYTHING on your plate… Except the crumbs… And the things that are too tricky to eat… And I couldn’t have double pudding anyway because I didn’t have time.

THE CRAZY ONE
It’s Forest School! There’s one tree that’s CRAZY in Forest School – that’s the crazy tree [left]. They’re just normal trees [left], that brown’s the bark on the floor and there’s the blue sky above.

Speed of delivery
June 20, 2013

speeddelivery[On the school Fronter system, when a pop-up asks whether we want to allow an .exe file to run]

Mum: Do we want a program to run?

Boy: No! Press cancel! When you get a message like that, you HAVE to say ‘no’. Otherwise it will run – you know like the Coach tells us to run in PE?

Mum: Yes?

Boy: Well it will run like that – and that’s bad. DON’T let it run.

A challenge to walk
May 31, 2013

walkchallengeA CHALLENGE TO WALK
I won the 5-day walking challenge because I went to Vikki’s and walked for all of the days!
It was only me and Misha who won it. I thought some others might win it, but they didn’t because they’re all in their cars going, “I don’t have to walk!” And then going, “…But I want to win the 5-day walking challenge. Hey mum! Can I walk?” And their mums can’t hear because they’re listening to music in their headphones. “Hey mum! Can I walk?” And their mums say, “No darling, because I can’t leave you alone.”
