My bean has grown a bean

I planted a broad bean at school in the spring. It grew for a bit and then we took it home. It was quite small so we kept it inside. Then when it was bigger and the weather was sunny we planted it outside. We thought it was never going to grow anything because it was eaten lots by black fly. I sprayed it with water and washing up liquid but it didn't really stop the flies.

Today we were looking at all our plants and we found ..... a pod of beans.

My bean has grown a bean.
Lots of beans.

I am going to cook some to eat and plant some to grow another plant.

Ten days with daddy

Mummy went away for ten days to Zambia with church. I stayed at home with Daddy!

I still went to school and I had lots of playdates with my friends. When I was with daddy we played lots of games like frustration and top trumps.

I missed mummy sometimes and it was sort of OK. I was pleased mummy went to Zambia but I wanted her to come home.

Mummy went to Zambia to help the people and the children. She gave them some clothes and toys and she played with them and talked to them. Most of the people couldn't speak English so mummy used a translator.

Mummy made some friends out there in Zambia and she'd like to go back. I'd like to go with mummy next time. I checked and she's not going next year and that's good.

It was sort of good being with daddy but it's better when it's mummy and daddy.

My house

This is my house
It's not really red and blue
But I've drawn it red and blue
As a present for you


You know I love art and making things and today I'm sharing a really good and easy picture.

Yesterday I brought home all my artwork from year 2 at school and I found an owl picture I did when we learned about nocturnal animals.

We had bits of card and I tore it into small pieces so it looked like feathers. Then I tore long hits for sticks. Owls are easy because they are just two circles. I just stuck all the card feathers on with some eyes and put the owl on the card sticks. Isn't it good.

Will you have a go?
I'd like to see yours.
