We have just spent our RE lesson learning about Advent from Rev. Elizabeth. She unfortunately doesn't have an advent calendar but her daughter has a Fair Trade one and her son has a Marvel one.


Rev. Elizabeth taught us that advent means arrival. It is about the arrival of Jesus in the countdown to his Birthday.

Chicks Sunday

They now empty the food bowl in 3 hours! I can see that they have grown already since yesterday, you will be surprised how big they are when you see them tomorrow. Luckily the cats still haven't realised that I have brought chicks home! 

Chicks Friday

Well...Bob is definitely more than just a chick. I will write why in a minute.


At the end of school on Friday I found Miss Pounder, Miss Armstrong and Mrs Summerill all looking worried in Mrs Ryders classroom. "The eggs are chirping!" Miss Armstrong said, really concerned. We all decided that someone would have to take the sgss. So Mrs Summerill has taken all of the eggs, My chicks have come home with one of Mrs Ryders and Miss Pounder has taken the rest if the chicks home. 


As I left school Bob chirped at the top of his lungs. It sounded like he was shouting "Save us!" Once I got onto the A 1 he was quiet and they chirped quietly all the way home.


Patrick helped me to clean them out. We stood them in a Quality Street tub and found out the strangest thing. If there are fewer than 3 chicks in the tub they jump out. More than 3 and they just sit there! Weird hey?


At half six Mr Lakey arrived home and loved the chicks. so far the cats don't seem to have realised there are chicks in the house. Let's hope it continues that way!



I'm really excited that we are breaking up for a week, after all of our hard work recently with SATS etc.

I think I might have to have a few days at my caravan with my dog Tyke and my daughter Olivia (she loves going to the discos in the clubhouse)

But first I am going to be really brave and attempt to clean my Bens bedroom!!! 

I think I will definitely need lots of bin bags because it is really really messy!!!!!!!!!


Y3/4LG Penelope Rots and the Chocolate Factory

In a large town, on the East coast of England there lived a small girl called Penelope.  She had won a world record for the longest hair! In fact she had never, ever, in her whole life, had it cut! It was as long as an elephants trunk and shimmered in the sunlight.  Her golden brown hair was always tield with the most delicate, sparkly, ruby, red bow.

Well...I have found out that I was born in the Chinese Year of the Monkey. So here is my monkey. Maybe he is trying to remind me to eat 7 a day!
