Conversations in Red and Yellow Class
This week I have decided to use some photos and conversations to see if you can “guess what went on”. I think they show quite a lot.
‘They taking one’
‘Yours the proper one’
‘Aha, that one’
‘I’m on holiday’
‘What did you see?” (whoops-interesting that I change it from the present tense to the past rather than keeping the current game going as if it’s happening now)
‘Tyrannasuarus” (that threw me!)
‘My Dad can break things’
‘What can he break?’
‘Why does he break things?’
‘Cos he’s grumpy’
‘Remember the rocket picture?”
I didn’t or couldn’t remember.
‘We did it outside” he said to try and help me.
‘Oh yes” I’m afraid I lied here
‘I still got it, it’s on the fridge’
Pancake Day - so the fire alarm went off and we had a full fire drill. H whispered lots, but difficult to catch. They were very absorbed in making food together, chatting away. We also had mobile phone soup, of course, always goes with pancakes. It was a very calm group so it didn’t feel right to put the fast tidy up music on, the tidying/sorting happened very efficiently without my manic input!
G carried on stacking, A watched the effect of pulling the ribbons that were attached to the cupboards. I had started tying up the studio (this comes from a hippy art teacher I had who got us to tie up the whole of our classroom with string, it was the 1970’s, and it has stayed with me all this time even though I had no idea what it was all about at the time - or even now. It had a massive effect but I’ve never felt the need to examine that. Maybe I should. My dad, who was an art teacher, was very dismissive of it at the time. What art thing has stuck in your mind I wonder?)
J loved to climb into the box, A was singing “strawberry ice cream, ice cream, sprinkle ice cream, chocolate ice cream, ice cream’ It was very catching.
