THE BARNYARD BUDDIES VISIT BOEN

22/5/09

On Friday evening (that's when the fun started) I got a bit TOO excited and started observing what Ratchet and Clank and my panda (Bright) could lift up. This is what I found:

Bright could lift Ratchet/Clank (or both at once)
Ratchet could lift Clank/Bright (or both at once)
Clank could lift Ratchet (weird huh?)/Bright



All this got a bit silly so my Mum told me to record it in this journal. GRRRRRRRR!!! Oh, and by the way my Dad didn't have his cellphone wire-thingymajingbob so we couldn't get our photos on the memory stick. Oh well. I suppose he will bring it tomorrow. Mum was also baking egg cakes (but not for them!). I think they'll get a taste.

23/5/09

Today was FUN! William B came over and we played heaps. There are two things to notice here. 1) I am not going to say all the hundreds of stuff we played with because most of it didn't have to do with The Barnyard Buddies. 2) I am only going to say what The Barnyard Buddies did. At the start we didn't do much to write for today. At the end we actually created Ratchet and Clank's first wrestling match. It ended up as KO x2 (knockout). It sure looked like Ratchet was going to win but when he crashed headfirst (or should I say hornfirst), the impact made him fly back and he fell down heavily.

24/5/09

Today we hardly did anything. In the morning we forgot to bring Ratchet and Clank to Church and we didn't get to do anything (emphasis mine) with them. Dad put the photos onto the flash drive but accidentally he stopped the video early so you can't see Ratchet's KO.

HOW CAN I BE A STUDENT OF THE WEEK?

All of the children in Model 2B are very keen to spend the weekend with The Barnyard Buddies and be the "Student of the Week". We talked about what we thought a "Student of the Week" would do. The children thought that the "Student of the Week" would have to be:

* Helpful
* Sit up straight
* Be a good listener
* Show kindness
* Have good manners (please and thank you)
* Work neatly
* Put rubbish in the bin
* Pay attention



I wonder who the next "Student of the Week" will be?

THE BARNYARD BUDDIES VISIT CAROLYN


9-10 May 2009

The Barnyard Buddies have been to the Swimming Pool and the Library. They liked sliding down my stairs pole. I cuddled them all night. We have had lots and lots of fun and they loved it. When Uncle Mick came we had to go to the Airport. But we forgot to bring the camera. Bye Bye Carolyn. But one more thing. We watched a movie.

Bye Bye Barnyard Buddies.
Love Carolyn

CARING FOR THE BARNYARD BUDDIES

On Friday we talked about how to care for The Barnyard Buddies. Miss B shared a story about how last year her class mascot went home with one of the children. The boy who took 'Ralph' the cat home left him on the floor. Ralph was attacked by his dog and had to have an operation! We did not want that to happen to The Barnyard Buddies so the children suggested some important rules which need to be followed if The Barnyard Buddies visit. Here are our rules:

CARING FOR THE BARNYARD BUDDIES - Model 2B Rules
* Don't leave them in a hard place to find
* Don't give them to little brothers or sisters
* Don't get them muddy
* Don't let pets play with them
* Don't give them mud baths
* Don't drop them
* Don't keep them, bring them back!
