The best team in the world
May 8, 2013

bestteamSon: Barcelona are the best football team in the world! Mikayla showed me lots of videos and in one, they got 27 scores and the other team got zero!

Mum: Why are Barcelona so good then?

Son: They do LOTS more practice and training and spend more time on their club – that’s what Mikayla said.
You want to see the statue?

Mum: Go on then.

Son: [Strikes a pose] ‘Huh!’ That’s someone doing a header with the ball in Barcelona!

Pledging allegiance
March 16, 2013

pledgingallD: Which country do I support at football?

Me: Err – our country? England?

D: No, I mean, like Manchester, or something? Jamie supports Chelsea.

Me: Ah, you mean which football team. Well, there isn’t really one that you support.

D: Maybe… Manchester?

Me: Manchester United? Your Grandad Bob used to support them – I suppose it’s as good a team as any to support.

D: Yes – I’ll support Manchester United then.

A real trophy

Winning the trophy – Feb 2013

D: I won a trophy for real. That’s me at one end [right], and that’s all the children on the benches. I walked past all the children and did high fives and that’s Mr G giving me the trophy at the other end [left].

Inflatable football
February 24, 2013

inflatablefootballMe: What did you do at Sports Camp today?

D: Dodgeball, and inflatable football – do you know what inflatable football is?

Me: Is it where you play with an inflatable football?

D: Yes, well, you know the big football pitch that I told you about before?

Me: The one outside?

D: Yes – we played on that and I got gold for my team! I was the only one in our team to get a goal – and so I got 159 points!

Me: Well done! That’s a lot of points for a goal – it MUST have been special.

D: Yes, I was the ONLY one, so it was – how many points did I say?

A few good captains
January 24, 2013

afewgoodcD: We didn’t know who the captains were for PE today. We usually have two, three or four.

Me: Oh. I suppose it depends on what games you play as to how many captains you need.

D: Huh?

Me: Different games need a different number of teams. So that would mean a different number of captains.

D: No. It depends whether you’ve been REALLY good – sometimes there’s four people that have been REALLY good, sometimes three, sometimes two, sometimes one – no, not one – two, three or four.
Aly was sitting out today and he said “I’m going to be captain.” I said, “I don’t think you are, because you have to sit out.”

Me: Why was he sitting out?

D: Because he’d done something extremely not good.

Half-term success!

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!
