A Sad Adios…😭

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye…

As most of you know, the school year is coming to end and the summer holidays are slowly approaching. Everyone’s waving goodbye to their teachers and classes and are anxiously waiting to meet their new class teachers when the three weeks of ‘transition’ come. Transition is a period of time when children can get to know their new teachers and classes.

It’s time to bid farewell to Hazel and greet my new Year 5 class which is Oak! My new teacher will be Miss Parker and the LSP (teaching assistant) is Mr Johnson. Miss Parker will be our teacher for the three weeks of transition only as a new teacher will be appointed in September. I can’t wait to meet her/him! Hopefully they’re just like Miss Javed!

Wednesday was Parent’s Day at SHP, the day everyone received their yearly reports. As usual, everyone was nervous about the grades that they would get-especially me! There was a tense atmosphere when my family and I entered the classroom. We were all waiting for the moment when Miss Javed handed over my report for the year…

Then, the results were revealed! My report was…OUTSTANDING!!!! WAHEY!! My grades in Literacy, Maths, Science, R.E (Religious Education), Learning Together and P.E were superlative! I really need to thank God that everything in my report was great! This achievement is not mine to claim! It belongs to everyone, my family, friends, teachers and all you PAWSOME peeps because everyone has been supporting me all along and helped me to gain this achievement!

IMG_1688.JPG

Of course, my report wouldn’t have been outstanding without the hard work of all the PAWSOME people in my life! I would like to thank each and every one of them!

  1. Thank you God for making this possible!
  2. Thank you Mrs Mom and Mr Dad for supporting me throughout my journey from Moseley (old school) to SHP!
  3. Thank you Little Miss Diva and Baby A for being the cutest brother and sister in the whole wide world!
  4. Thank you Dr Auntie for motivating me to do my best!
  5. Thank you Mr OCD Uncle for being such an inspirational uncle to me!
  6. Thank you Dadajee and Khun Yai Thi Rak Khong Phom for always building up my ideas!
  7. Thank you Miss Javed and Miss Hussain for being the greatest teachers I have ever met!
  8. Thank you Hazel class for always standing by my side!
  9. Thank you SHP for building me up from who I was in Moseley to who I am today!
  10. Last but not least, I would like to thank all of my family and friends, my blog readers, all of my supporters on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for always supporting and encouraging me!

I am not sharing my results so I can brag about it or anything like that, I am sharing them because I am hoping that I can inspire more people and show them that hard work really does pay off and if we work as one, TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD! And don’t just do it for yourself:

  • Do it for God, who gave you a life, because He wants you to make a good use out of this precious dowry.
  • Do it for your mother, who carried you in her womb for nine months and brought you into this world, so you can make her proud.
  • Do it for your father, who works hard every day to ensure that you live a good life, so you can return the favour.
  • Do it for your teachers, who get through the headaches to make sure you have a high-level education, so you can thank them sincerely.
  • Do it for your brothers and sisters, who look up to you all the time, so you can become a perfect role model.
  • Do it for your friends, who stick with you in times of sorrow, so you can all succeed together.
  • Do it for the unfortunate people in this world, who manage to live in hunger and pain, so they can have a brighter future.
  • Do it for everyone, so TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

To end this emotional (😪) post, I would like to write a goodbye poem dedicated to Miss Javed and Miss Hussain!

A Sad Adios…

By The Pawsome Lion

You guided us through right from the start,

You loved us all with all your heart

You told us not to work for naught,

You taught us things that meant a lot

You never left us all alone

You made sure we didn’t break our bones

And though we’ve had our smiles and frowns,

We’ve turned the frowns upside down

That’s why I’m saying a sad adios

To two of my favourite amigos!

p/s: Adios Miss Javed and Miss Hussain! I wish you all the best for next year!

A Hectic Week!!!

hectic

Hiya pawsome peeps! How’s it going?

How was your week? This week has been hectic for all of us at school! Want to find out more? Then read below…

When everyone came to school on Monday, we thought that it was going to be another normal week at school. All that we knew was that the Year 6 SATs tests were going to take place this week-until Miss Javed broke the news to us.

Ofsted-logo

She said that two inspectors from Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) would be visiting us on Wednesday! And what was our reaction? We were speechless! Speechless and surprised! We didn’t know what to say. We had to get ourselves equipped before the inspectors came and visited us. So, we spent the whole of Tuesday getting ready for Ofsted’s visit.

When the Ofsted inspectors finally came, we were all nervous and scared at the same time. We all tried our best to keep our cool…but we just couldn’t keep our eyes off the door, fearing that they could come in any second! When one of the inspectors exited the classroom after observing it, Miss Javed and Miss Hussain let out a HUGE sigh of relief.The inspectors checked a few more classes and then they left. The pressure was over-for now!

interview

Some children were also interviewed by one the inspectors. There were 3 Junior Leaders (which included me), 2 people called Peer Supporters and 2 people called Prefects who were interviewed. We were interviewed by a lady called Mrs Green. She seemed like a warm and friendly person.

Mrs Green asked us many questions such as who we are, what role we play (e.g. JLT, Prefects), what we do to make the school a better place and so on. We told her that we have done many things to improve the school. For example, we have bought game boxes for our Fabulous Friday (free time), we have organised school events like Children in Need Day and many other things too. We also stated that the school is a very safe place to be in. We all enjoy learning here and some of us even wished that they could stay at this school forever! 

We thought that two inspectors were enough. But the next day, 5 INSPECTORS came to school!!! Apparently, we were so good that more people wanted to visit us! Now the pressure was on for real! Luckily, everything went smoothly. More people inspected our class and the feedback was great. But, Ofsted can’t tell us everything until they have finished their final report. I hope that comes back fast!

party

Because we did well in the inspections, on Friday, our teachers decided to treat us. Soooo (drum roll)… we had a fun day! We had extra time outside, we watched films, we had a dance-off in the afternoon and we did a million other things. To put it simple, we partied hard! We all had a great time. It was truly a day to enjoy.

yawn

Oh well, I’ll have to end it here…nearly bedtime for me (#YAWN)! Goodnight!

p/s: Thanks Dr. Auntie for the special treat before bedtime! Your Maggi Goreng tastes so delicious! YUMMY!!! 😀 😘 😘😘

School’s Here!!!

school.jpg

Wagwan pawsome peeps! Hope you’re doing well! As you all know, the Easter holidays have come to an end and it’s the start of a new school term. Since I haven’t written about school for quite a while now, I have decided to write a quick update about what’s going on at school.

As usual, I couldn’t wait to meet my PAWSOME Hazel class again on the first day back. Everyone was in a cheerful mood, especially the ROARSOME duo, Miss Javed and Miss Hussain!

natural-disasters

Since it was the start of a new term, we would be starting a new topic. Our topic for this term is all about Natural Disasters. This topic is jam-packed with lots of fun things to learn such as why earthquakes happen, what makes volcanos erupt, how tsunamis form and much more. And, we made great, enormous volcanos out of ordinary plastic bottles that were put on display. Some children also drew life-like pictures of natural disasters. From what I have seen, I guarantee that everyone will enjoy learning about this topic!

 

paint-splatter-wallpaper-8

Then, on Thursday, something special happened at school. It was…Arts Day! Arts Day is a day that is dedicated to art and design. Each Arts Day has a different theme each year. The theme for this Arts Day was portraits! As usual, there was task for us to complete. We had to create a portrait, collage or sculpture of someone who inspires us the most. Being the typical me, I’m always ready to take on the challenge! So, I made piece of artwork with both me and Mr Dad in it. As part of the artwork, I also created a quote related to father and son. It was:

“My father is the greatest father anyone could have. He gives me love, guidance and he always believes in me.

But the best gift he gave me was teaching me how to spread my wings and fly!”

animaatjes-graffiti-51227

I presented my artwork in a HUGE frame that looked like a film strip. And like I always say, even if I don’t win, I still tried my best! As a treat, a graffiti artist came visited us and explained to us what graffiti is! He also wrote the school’s initials in graffiti style writing and showed us some of the techniques that are used in graffiti art. The finishing product looked AA-mazing!  The graffiti art was going to be in the middle of our arts display once the portraits that we made at school were finished.

rainbow

Each year group was also asked to wear a certain colour on that day. This was all part of a school arts piece that we made. Year 4 was asked to wear a blue shirt or dress. Miss Javed and Miss Hussain were both wearing blue tops, blue trousers and even blue hair extensions! For once, they actually looked like twins! When all of the year groups were sitting together, the colours of our clothes made a magnificent rainbow if it was seen from above. Some of the teachers took photos of us and we all can’t wait to see them!

handwriting

Me and Nimat have also started our very own Handwriting Club! Our aim is to help children develop their handwriting so they have a better chance of earning a pen licence in the future. There are currently 5 children attending the club. From time to time, we also ask some other children to help us run the Handwriting Club because these children can be a handful (if you know what I mean)! At the moment, the club is for Year 2 children and is held three times a week. The club has been going on for more than two months now. We are also hoping to open up to other year groups over time.

drama

There is also some other news that I would like to share with you guys. I have finally got a place in Drama Club! As the name states, this is a club where we act out plays and movies. It is run by Mr Ball, a class teacher in Year 5. The play that we are currently practising is called A Midsummer Night’s Dream written by the well-known William Shakespeare. Surprisingly, I got the lead male role called Lysander! As a coincidence, Nimat is also in Drama Club! She plays the role of the Fairy. Rehearsals are held every Monday after school and Thursday at lunchtime. The actual play will be held in June and we are all very excited about it.

welcome

Last but not least, I would like to welcome a new student that has recently joined us. His name is Furqan! It has been around two weeks since he started at our school and has settled in really well. Welcome to Shireland Hall Primary Academy, Furqan! I hope you enjoy your time with us!

I’m afraid that I’ll have to end the post here, guys. But, keep your eyes peeled for the next update about another special day that I’ll be writing shortly! Till we meet again, ciao everybody!

ciao new

 

P/S: I’m feeling a bit under the weather so it looks like no school for The Pawsome Lion tomorrow, which is like the end of the world for me!

🌟🌟A Wonderful Week!🌟🌟

wonderfulweek.gif

Howdy pawsome peeps! Today, I’ll tell you about this week and how it has been. I hope you will enjoy it. So, without further ado, let’s get recounting!

under the weather

At the start of this week, I was feeling under the weather. In that case, I couldn’t go to school for TWO WHOLE DAYS!!! And we all know that if I miss school, it will be like the end of the world, especially missing two days of school! I was even crying on the second day! But, the upside of staying at home was that I got to spend time with Little Miss Diva and Baby A. XD

Then, on Wednesday, I finally went to school! I had been waiting for the day I could go back to school and meet all of my friends. On that day, it was our FLIP Workshop. A FLIP Workshop is when parents come to their child’s/children’s school, ascertain what they are learning and find out mental and written methods in Maths, Literacy or any other subject.

In this particular FLIP Workshop, we were learning a new mental strategy for adding and subtracting. If you want to add, you would have to first partition both numbers (the number you’re going to be adding to and the number you will be adding). After that, you add the hundreds together (depending on what number you have), the tens together and the units together. Once you have done that, you need to recombine all of your answers together. If you are subtracting, it’s pretty much the same as adding. But, this time, you only partition one number, which is the number you are going to subtract from.

When we were finished with the FLIP Workshop, we started our Literacy lesson. In Literacy, we were going to look at non-chronological reports. A non-chronological report is a report that does not have to be in time order. If it is a chronological report, it is just the opposite. Since we were learning about Madagascar in Literacy, we were looking at non-chronological reports about Madagascan animals. There was a hippo, a lion, a zebra, a giraffe, a lemur and many more. After that, we carried on with the school day.

snowing

The next day, I woke up with the most wonderful surprise. It was 2016’s first snowfall! ❄️ I looked at it in awe for a while. Then, I quickly got ready for school and jumped inside Mr  Dad’s car. It was SOOO cold, even inside the car! When I arrived at school, there was snow everywhere! Unfortunately, the snow melted completely when all of us went outside. 😦 But, we still enjoyed it while it lasted!

lion sketched.jpg

We also did Literacy and Maths too. Then, two things that were really exciting happened in the afternoon! First, we did some sketching! We sketched a PAWSOME lion with the whole class. Miss Javed sketched one too and it looked beautiful! If you want to do some sketching, here’s the website where you can get step-by-step instructions:

http://www.howtodrawanimals.net

the animal man-178x174

Finally, the highlight of the afternoon came. We went to see…an animal man!!!!! Because we are learning about the Amazon Rainforest and Madagascar, the animal man brought a large range of interesting animals for us to look at and touch.

cockroach

When we all finished our sketching, we quickly lined up and went down to the media suite where we would find the animal man. Inside the media suite, we found him sitting on a chair surrounded with lots of animals. He then introduced himself and brought out the first animal! It was (drum roll please!)…Madagascan hissing cockroaches!!! I was shaking and trembling when the animal man took the cockroaches out. Then, with no warning whatsoever, he threw a cockroach into someone’s lap and we were all screaming and shouting! 😲 Finally, the torture was over after he put the cockroaches back in their box.

bearded dragon and gecko

After the cockroaches, the man brought out a bearded dragon and a cute lil’ gecko! We weren’t allowed to touch the gecko but we could all touch the fierce looking bearded dragon. Both of the animals stared at us as we touched them and looked at them. I guess they were really interested in us! 😛

albino-african-pygmy-hedge

The next animal to come out was the one and only Ella, the Albino pygmy hedgehog! The animal man told us Ella was blind and she could only rely on her sense of smell and hearing. So, it was very important that we didn’t scare her. He then brought Ella around so we could pet her. When it was my go, I saw that Ella had big, shiny, red eyes that stood out from her face.

albino skunk

Then, the man brought out the stinkiest animal of them all. Can you guess? Yes, that’s right! It was a stinky, smelly,  silly old Albino skunk! We found out that the skunk had been rolling around in urine and he made himself turn yellow because of that! This time, we all nervously touched the skunk, thinking that he might spray on us any moment. The animal man told us not to worry and to buy tomato juice to get rid of the smell!

Barn_owl

Next came the elegant barn owl, which has 14 neck bones! A barn owl has a great sense of hearing. It’s better than a human’s sense of hearing! Once again, the animal man took the barn owl and brought it around so we could stroke it. It definitely wanted to get off the man’s hand now and explore. And so, the animal man let him fly freely. But, he decided to sit on the interactive whiteboard and watch TV! XD

ball python

Last but not least, the animal man brought out the greatest animal of all, the fantastic Ball Python! The Ball Python felt scaly, cold and was deadly. Miss Javed actually put the python around her neck and took a selfie with it! What a great idea! The python was also attracted to the iPad and it didn’t move. When we were lining up, we got the chance to feel the python as we went out. Phew! That was over now!

Finally, we move on to Friday! Friday was a normal school day. The only thing that brightened up the day (or made the day colder) was more snow! We did Literacy, Maths and whatnot. Then, we went to have our P.E lesson, as we normally do on Mondays and Fridays.

coffee grinder

In P.E, we were doing break dancing and were focusing on floor moves. In this particular lesson, we were learning how to do the Coffee Grinder first! I know what you’re thinking! Coffee Grinder? What in the world of The Pawsome Lion is that? Well, it’s quite easy to do. First, get into a cannonball position but with your hands out in front of you on the floor. Next, put your left foot out and bring it under your hands to the other side. When you’re in that position, jump over your left foot with your right foot and you should be back in the second position! There you go! Here is a video for more information that you might need:

6 step

The next move that we learned was the 6 Step! As it says in the name, this break dancing move has 6 steps. In that case, I will not list the instructions down coz it’s super hard! Anyway, it’s really cool if you know how to do it and if you take it slow, you will master it in no time! For the instructions, here is a video for you containing all the information you need:

giraffe sketched

After P.E, we went to lunch. When lunch was finished, we came back to class, did the register and started another calming session of sketching. This time, we sketched a realistic giraffe. We added some spots and a nice scenery in the background. In my picture, I also put in some falling leaves and the giraffe’s shadow as some additional details.

luxuriate

Then, when we finished our sketching, we all went home to start our luxuriating weekends…

Well, that’s it for this week! I hope that you have enjoyed the weekends too! Until next time, tạm biệt!

Happy 1 Month-aversary!

monthly-milestone-signs-pink_1month-201x300

Hey pawsome peeps! I know that I said that I won’t be posting anything for a few days but I just realised that it’s already been a month since I have started blogging (Whew, time goes so fast, doesn’t it?).

75496_380405402067036_1907930380_n.jpg

I can still remember sitting down with Mrs Mom brainstorming the identity for my new project as if it was only yesterday! After that, we both went through the registration for my own email account, this blog, my own Facebook page, Twitter and also Instagram. I know it’s only been a month but my schedule has changed a lot since I started blogging. To be fair, not only mine, but also Mrs Mom’s, Little Miss Diva’s and Baby A’s too! The level of commitment was so high but I didn’t mind it at all because I’ve witnessed how much time Mrs Mom had sacrificed for me. Mr Dad has also contributed a lot to help make this happen! Thinking of all those sacrifices that were made, I promise myself that I will work harder to drive my blog along the road to success!

So far, I’ve written 26 posts since 2nd November. Wow!!! That’s a lot for 29 days. I should give myself a pat on my back. 🙂 I hope that I can always maintain this level of commitment. Up until now, there were 788 visitors and 2,700 views on my blog. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I checked the statistics on my blog last night! I found out that there are visitors from 15 different countries which have visited my blog till date. They are from:

  1. United Kingdom
  2. Malaysia
  3. Poland
  4. Singapore
  5. United States
  6. Qatar
  7. Bulgaria
  8. Hong Kong SAR China
  9. Indonesia
  10. Australia
  11. Netherlands
  12. Japan
  13. Thailand
  14. Italy
  15. Germany

 

Now, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have visited my blog and read my pieces of work. I might not know all of you but I can assure you that I am so grateful and honoured to know that people from different parts of the world have spared their precious time to read my humble blog. It’s the greatest feeling that anyone can have!

I would especially like to thank Mr Dad for always believing in me and also to Mrs Mom for all her continuous support and hard work juggling around the house to help make my dreams come true! And how could I ever forget my biggest fans, Little Miss Diva and Baby A! They have been loyal readers of my blog. Every morning, Mrs Mom has to read out my blog to both of them while they sit quietly listening to the posts until she finishes. Little Miss Diva also enjoys looking at all those pictures. It was definitely worth every single bit of effort that I’ve made.

Lots of thank you’s also go to my mentor, Dr. Auntie, who has given me lots of feedback on my writing. Another thank you to Mr OCD Uncle who has always motivated me to do more in life! And of course my next thank you goes to my best buddy, Dadajee (my grandpa)! No one could have supported me the way you did, Dada!! The next people in the line would be Khun Yai Thi Rak Khong Phom (my beloved grandma), my Auntie Kawaii and family, plus my Uncle Pawsome and family for the greatest support ever!!!

Not to forget all the support from Mr Dad’s side of the family too! Thank you Atuk (my paternal grandpa), Anek (my paternal grandma), my uncles, aunties and cousins for your kind support. I really appreciate it!

This next special thank you is dedicated to someone close to my heart, Unclejee. Thank you for all those time you spared to read my writing. Thank you for all those comments you’ve made.Thank you for all the encouragement, positive feedback, text messages and a gazillion other things. Words can’t express how much I appreciate it. Even though we’ve never met, it seems like we’ve got a very strong connection with each other.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my siblings in Hazel. You have been so supportive and also loyal readers of my blog. I could never have done it without all your support. Special thanks to Miss Javed and Miss Hussain. You are both AMAZING!!! 😀

And of course my next thank you would be to all my pawsome teachers and friends in Shireland who have been supporting me as I go along the path to success. Thank you Mr Shephard for all the recognition. I really appreciate it! Thank you Miss Prince for all the appreciation. Thank you Mrs Hussain for being a fan of my story. Thank you my best friend Nimah for being my loyal reader.

This last thank you is for someone very important. I put her last not because she’s least special but because she’s the reason why I am who I am today. Thank you Mrs Lawrence for all your guidance and appreciation. You have spotted my talent from the very beginning and has always believe that I could do more and more. I may have been 5 years old at that time. But, Mrs Mom would never let me forget all the hard work you’ve put into me. If you are reading this, please know that I will never forget you, ever!!!

Now, hold your horses coz all of you PAWSOME peeps have been so AWESOME and have been leaving MORESOME comments. That makes all of you ROARSOME!!!!! So again, a big fat THANK YOU to everyone for supporting me. Happy 1 Month-aversary! 

“We must always appreciate all the support that people have given us at any time. It is just like respect!”

Four Unexpected Surprises!

Gt+g+day+mate+i+lost+_233100f286659db457a11f425dba9247

G’day mate! Watch’ya doin’?

Unknown

Today was another uninteresting school day but it’s still good coz of the four surprises that I can’t wait to tell you about and also because… I GET TO SLEEP LATE TONIGHT (I doubt I’ll even stay awake until 10:00pm 😀 )!!!! FYI, it’s Friday so I’m allowed to stay up late. Anyway, about the surprises, I’ll get to them later. For now, I’ll just carry on with my story…

tumblr_lgb0a4ssjn1qbq2p4

Today, when I went to school, the first thing we did was go to our Maths classes (of course we did the register first!). So, we went off to our exhausting classes where Maths questions lay waiting for us. Fortunately, Unexpected Surprise No. 1 came to save us (well, just both of us)! And the surprise was… a lesson observation! Me and another girl called Leena had to go to Year 6 and do a lesson observation in one of the classes. The reason why two people had to go was because Leena wasn’t really confident to do it by herself. So, Miss Prince chose me to go with Leena to help her. Well, actually, it’s fair enough for her to be nervous because it was her first time plus, she had to observe Year 6. As for me, I’ve already done a lesson observation with Mr Shephard in the past and we also had some training with JLT. I felt so honoured that Miss Prince chose me to help someone with a lesson observation. Thanks Miss Prince for the great opportunity!!

observations.jpg

When we were done with the observation, me and Leena went back to our Maths classes. When we walked in, they were all solving a question on the board. There were already whiteboards and marker pens out on the tables. I sat down and started to solve the question. As soon as my pen touched the board and made just one single dot, it was time to pack up! 😛

Star and Wish

Anyhow, when we went back to our normal classes, Hazel class, which was my class, was being observed by Miss Prince and Miss Stringer (the vice principal)! Miss Javed had been preparing us for this for the whole morning. When they finally arrived, we were all so nervous. While Miss Javed was talking to us, she was constantly glancing at both of the members of the SLT (Senior Leadership Team). The lesson that we were in right now was Literacy. The learning objective was to peer assess. Peer assess means to mark each other’s work. What the teacher normally does in our books is write Two Stars and a Wish. One star is one thing that you have done really well. The other star is something else that you have done really well and the wish is something that you need to improve on. So, Miss Javed gave us a sheet with two stars and a wish on it and we had to use that to mark their work. And guess what we were using to write…THE TEACHER’S RED PENS!!! How cool is that? And the other thing is that we were great in the observation. But, we were still left without an answer. Miss Javed was so proud of us.

tumblr_lxr8e2v3mK1rnnpl4o1_500

After Literacy, we had our break. Then, when we came back in, we had a Learning Together lesson. Learning Together is a lesson when we learn about different themes like the Tudors, the Aztecs etc. This half term, we were learning about the Aztecs! We did a quick cutting and sticking activity then went to lunch.

Aztecs

For lunch today, I had:

  1. Fish
  2. Chips
  3. Peas and sweetcorn
  4. Ketchup
  5. Sweet chilli sauce
  6. Juice

fish-chips 01.gif

After lunch, we continued with our Learning Together lesson. We carried on with our cutting and sticking then eventually got to the end. After that, we watched some of the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. Then, we went down to assembly. That’s when Unexpected Surprise No. 2 was unveiled. And that surprise was something that I had been waiting for a long time. I had been working really hard on it and in the end, I achieved it. Like they say, no pain, no gain! Anyway, the surprise was… MY PEN LICENCE! Yay! I felt so proud and grateful that my name was mentioned when I walked out in front of everyone.

3866730

At the end of the day, we all went home to have a great movie night or have a big feast. Then, late in the night, there was a strange knock on the door. When Mr. Dad opened the door, the faces of two policemen were revealed. They said that a person walking past heard a child crying. We all then said that it was Baby ‘A’ who was crying because he was a bit poorly. But, even when he’s not poorly, Baby ‘A’ always cries when Mrs. Mom gives Little Miss Diva a shower. I guess he’s just jealous of her. Unusually, they were very kind policemen. They even wrote down their names on my notebook for me! In return, I gave them some of my name cards so that they could read my blog. And right now, I hope that they’re reading this post. And that was Unexpected Surprise No. 3!

tumblr_n0pgiuIbdv1sexrjko3_400.gif

Aah, I forgot the one last surprise. While I was doing my writing, Mrs. Mom called me to see a special surprise outside. When I went to look, there was snow filling the garden! Snow in November! How cool is that?

Well, that’s the end of my post for now. See you soon for more pawsome stuff!

As usual, today was a normal school day. We had Maths, Literacy yada, yada, yada. So you could say that I have nothing to write about. I might as well tell you about my big project that I’m planning to do next week. Anyway, as I was saying, I do have something to write about! Aha, tricked ya! Miss Javed asked me to write a short paragraph about something called individual liberty. We were learning about individual liberty in one of our lessons. Miss Javed wants me to write this so she can put it up on our SMSC wall. If any of you don’t know what individual liberty is then don’t worry coz I will be explaining what it means. Well, here goes!

Individual liberty

Individual liberty means that everyone is free to say whatever they want and no one can stop them. If you feel that something is wrong then don’t be afraid to share your opinion. We are all allowed to speak freely, only if it doesn’t offend anyone. It is the same with other people too. If you make a decision and someone else says that they think it’s bad, you shouldn’t get into a fight. You should at least consider that person’s opinion and tweak your decision a bit. It doesn’t matter if their idea is good or bad, you should at least listen to them. Don’t forget that we are all human beings and we should be treated the same!

I hope that I’ve told you enough information and that you like it! I look forward to seeing you in the next post!

My Pawsome Tuesday!

tuesday-037

Greetings, pawsome peeps! How’s it going? Hope that everything’s well.

over-the-moon

This morning, when I walked into the class, Miss Javed and my mates were discussing about the article that I wrote on leadership.Surprise, surprise! We read it through and talked about certain points in there. Then, Miss Javed printed it so we could put it up on our SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural development) wall. I felt so honoured to have my article displayed on the wall. It’s really worth all the hard work that I put into it. I felt thankful to Miss Javed for the opportunity and recognition that she has given me! I really appreciate it and will use this to drive myself towards my goal in life. I will not forget to take Hazel with me on my journey to reach the stars! What a great way to start my morning, huh? 😀

After all the morning hoo-ha, we moved on to Literacy. Literacy was really interesting. We got to use thesauri for the first time (well, at least it was most of the children’s first time)!  My group had to think of 7 simple adjectives and find better words for them in the thesaurus. I managed to think of 6 words and find 3 or 4 words for each of them.

Then we had a break. When we came back in, it was time for Maths. We all went to our groups to start the lesson. In my group, we had to do equivalent fractions. Some of the children in ‘GO’ group groaned and said “Aww! 😦 “. But we had no choice and had to get on with it. As usual, we managed to answer all the questions.

Then it was lunch time. For my lunch, I had:

  1. A Southern fried veggie burger
  2. Sweetcorn
  3. Salad
  4. Apple pie
  5. Juice

By the time lunch had finished, everybody could not calm down. It’s hard to calm down when you’ve just had a break, especially when you’ve played an exciting game. At last, everyone managed to simmer down.  Then, Miss Javed proceeded with the register. After the register, Miss Javed said that we would be… MAKING COMPASSES!!! Everybody whooped “Yay!” and leaped up off their seats. Then the phone started to ring. Miss Hussain went to answer it. When she came back, she told me something. There was going to be an exciting event. It was… me and Nimah’s 2nd council meeting!

Once again, we repeated the journey that we did before. We collected Nimah, picked up the other children from the other schools and arrived at Victoria Park Primary Academy. Then, we gathered our visitor stickers again and went through to the meeting room. We then said hello to the teacher that was hosting the meeting. After that, we said our names so the teacher could put our names on the register. The next thing that we had to do was to re-cap on what we did last week.

Firstly, we talked about what qualities a good leader has. We went round the table and shared our ideas.Then, we put forward some points about why we think that so and so is good or why so and so is bad.

Christmas-Disco1

Then, we started talking about the Christmas disco again. We talked about the letter for it and the invitation. We were then split into 2 groups. One group would be making the invitation and the other one would be writing the letter. I was in the group that was making the invitation. I really wanted to be in this group because I’m really good at designing things. We managed to get the whole invitation done just in time. On it we had a gold background, a title, a border, pictures and writing of course!

At the end of the meeting, I gave out some of the name cards that Dr. Auntie made for me. Everyone liked them and said “Wow!”. Then, Nimah asked the teacher if we would be going to Parliament in London. The teacher replied “Yes. It has always been our tradition to go to Parliament every year.” Having heard this, the whole school council shouted “Whoo hoo!!”. Finally, it was time to go back to school sweet school.

When I got back to my class, the science lesson was already finished. I had missed the experiment! But luckily, we got to take the kit that we needed to make the compass at home. I was so relieved when I heard this.

School-Selfie

At the end of the day, I went down to Keyboard Club. When we were practicing the song that we were learning, Lean on Me, everyone managed to play it once again! Around of applause for everyone in the club! Because we could play it from start to finish, we started to learn a new song called Stay with Me. Some of us managed to play the first line of the song just before home time.

Then, I went home with Mr. Dad and spent some time with Little Miss Diva and Baby ‘A’ coz they are both poorly. 😦 As you can see, my writing is getting even more boring by the second because I am half asleep. I think that I should stop here before I make everyone else fall asleep! Good night! Don’t let the bed bugs bite!! 😉

p/s: sorry that I couldn’t reply to your email, Nimah. I was doing my writing and it was getting very late. So, I had to get ready for bed. But, I look forward to see you tomorrow in pyjamas! 😀

Just another Tuesday…

Hey pawsome peeps! Today, I showed my blog to my PAWSOME class, Hazel. The only post that I got time to show them was the Laffy Taffy song. There was a video of me singing it but unfortunately, it didn’t work. Because of this, I had to sing it live! 😀 Before I even sang it, Miss Javed said “I think that I’m going to cry!” because she was so excited to hear me sing it. While I was singing it, Miss Hussain was waving her arm around like she was in a concert. When I finished singing it, everyone clapped and cheered. I felt so grateful to everyone in the class and extremely honoured to be clapped at by my own friends.

Then, after all the wildness, Miss Javed gave me another challenge. Another challenge? My God, everyone wants to give me challenges now!!! 😀 Anyway, Miss Javed said, ” Your next challenge is to write a PAWSOME rap about the whole class and make sure you mention every child’s name. Don’t forget to say PAWSOME things about them!” I was left standing there gawping as if a bee had stung me. It’s impossible to write a rap about the whole class and include every single child’s name! But if I can manage to write a song about Laffy Taffy, then I can manage to do this. If I keep trying and trying, I can surely make it.

dont-give-up

So I went home, told Mrs. Mom about my day, called Dr. Auntie as usual and asked Mrs. Mom why the video wasn’t working. She then said that she didn’t know why it wasn’t working but she created a PAWSOME YouTube channel for the The Pawsome Lion!! How cool is that? I was so surprised when I heard this. So now I need to remember to tell my class to check out my YouTube channel so that they can watch the video of me sing The Laffy Taffy Song! So that was my day today. Come back tomorrow for more PAWSOME posts! See you! 😉

Scenario and Surprise!

Hey everyone! Today was a really busy day filled with exciting news. It all started when I first arrived at school.

We had already done the register and I was putting out some Maths resources on each table. All of a sudden, the fire alarm started to ring. As usual, people were running and shouting as they rushed to the door. Even though it was just to test the fire alarm and everyone knew it, people would still be panicking. Everyone except one person. That was me! I just casually trotted along to join the line and walked outside as if it was playtime. The only thing that got me out of my good mood was the rain. Finally, when the alarm stopped ringing, everyone was back to their normal self and sitting down in the classroom.

That was the busy part of the day. The other part of the day was filled with exciting news. Miss Hussain, the teaching assistant, wrote down the link to my blog on a piece of paper. This was so I could show my blog to Mr. Shephard, the principal of the school. I went to his office and gave him the link but he was busy so he couldn’t look at it yet. He said that after he checked it out, he would come and see me. So I carried on with my day and waited and waited and waited. By this time, I didn’t think that he would get back to me. I then told myself that it’s okay and that I always have tomorrow to see him.

Surprisingly, in the middle of our Literacy lesson, Mr. Shephard came to the door of our classroom and walked inside. He took a quick scan of the room and found me sitting at a table near the corner. He strode over to me, knelt down and whispered in my ear. He said that he had already read the blog and showed it to Miss Chesney, the English Leader, and Mr. Mould, the Computing Leader. Then he said that all three of them, Miss Chesney, Mr. Mould and himself, decided to start a Boys Only Writing Club. They would also be making a blog. And the leader of the club was…ME!!!!! :O

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. A Boys Only Writing Club? Making a blog? And the leader was me? It was too good to be true! He then walked out of the classroom, leaving me in shock. I looked around the classroom and everyone was busy getting on with their work. I felt like I had just killed a lion! (Not The Pawsome Lion though!) 🙂

I had just got back to my work when both Miss Javed and Miss Hussain called me. The moment I turned around, they both screamed with happiness. Then they told me to go to them and asked me what Mr. Shephard was talking to me about. I told them the “PAWSOME” news and they were both so proud. Miss Hussain even hugged me. I can still remember the last word from Miss Javed, “Great Mukhtar, now all you have to do is just say that Miss Javed is amazing!” 😀

I’m so lucky to have two “AWESOME” teachers, a “MORESOME” school with a “PAWSOME” Principal and my fantastic friends! Not to forget, my supportive and enthusiastic Mr. Dad and Mrs. Mom. I feel so grateful and honoured to get this amazing opportunity. A huge thank you to the people who made this possible: Mr. Dad and Mrs. Mom, Little Miss Diva and Baby ‘A’, my grandparents, my uncles and aunties, my cousins, Mr. Shephard, Miss Chesney, Mr. Mould, Miss Javed, Miss Hussain and to all my teachers and friends in Moseley (old school) and SHP!
