Learning and living in harmony.

A look in to Scrooge’s diary!

Hello my name is Dewi and I have written a diary entry as if I was EbenezerScrooge and here it is

Dear diary Bah humbug!!!!! Humbug to Christmas humbug to charity humbug to all things poor enough to get my money and well earned wages and not in exchange receive the work and toil of the workhouse humbug!!!!!!! They expect to get my well earned wages and food just to sustain their lives for one stinking day,and that ungrateful clerk Bob Chratchet he expects two Two!!!lumps of coal and a day off A DAY OFF!!! In my day if you couldn’t pay up it was jail and death for you. So when two lokle men came in asking for my wages I stated my reply”let them die and decrease the current population” of course regret it now……less peasants mean less tax for me to collect! Ha ha haha. I hate Christmas for one reason and one reason only, everyone is merry but they give without reason and expect others to do their work and follow them in what I call madness.
Why only this morning my nephew came forth and uttered “come uncle follow me in merriment and enjoy a spot of Christmas dinner with the famille”of corse I replied”let me have Christmas in my way and let you have it in yours.”I was walking home one fogy Christmas Eve and my partner(the late Jacob Marley)head appeared in the place of my door nob,it startled me and I fled in through the door way.Later that night as the bell yonder struck twelve I herd a series of deep hollow footsteps as if someone was striking a drum.then I saw like a beast rising from the deep Marley’s tall strong profile confronted me as a lion confronts its prey before pouncing.my partner stood in the doorway as he stated that during the night three spectars shall come and make me repent my ways.I did not reply as I was in a state of shock.I expect I will get a bigger one later though.

Ebeneezer Scrooge.

A Scrooge visit!

Today we listened to the first two instalments of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Then we had a visit from Ebenezer Scrooge!
We asked him some questions like

When did you start hating Christmas?
Why do you hate kids?
How strong was your relationship with Marley?
What feelings did you feel when you heard the ghost of Marley?
Why do you always say humbug?
What is the worst thing you ever did?
Did you have a happy life before you had a dark life?
Why did you choose to be a money-collector?
Why didn’t you take Marley’s name off the board?
Do you really think money is more important than Christmas?
Was Marley your only friend?
Do you ever see your family?
How many times have you thought of Marley after his death?

We thought of some words to describe Scrooge like,
scary
cold hearted
vicious
despicable
Putrid
Isolated
Evil
Frightening
Aggressive
Old
Awful
Upsetting
Angry
Lonely
Horrid
Frozen minded
Loveless
Creepy
Icy breath
Mean

Scrooge had many objects with him in his trunk – his clock which had stopped, his book of money collecting, and a scary picture of Marley’s ghost!

This afternoon we watched the film A Christmas carol it was funny scary and the moral of the story was not to be nasty to others and not to hate Christmas.
We thought Ruby would make a great Scrooge so when he wasn’t around we dressed her up!

Pop-up cards

Hi Folks we have been making pop up cards by making slits in some soft card .
We cut out the shapes we needed like Christmas trees and fire places. To make a pop up card you do the back ground first then make one or two slits. It’s best to do you card on ruff paper first. you can’t just stick on your shapes you have to measure them so you have it in place were you want<st
you want to stick in place and glue it to the slot. Why don't you use coloured pencils or felt tip pens
pens.

Acceptance pie

We did a Benjamin Zephaniah poem about peace and harmony the poem was called the british,and it was written like a recipe.

We made a whole class poem in the last 5 minuets of our lessen it was AMAZING

Include religions and mix them to make a sweet taste.
Prepare them some care and power,
sieve carefully a 100g of friendship.
Mix carefully and add a handful of respect for living harmony.
Combine thoughtfully with a bowl of acceptance.
Blend some respect with a dash of honour,
prepare some loving kindness and a handful of belief and care
add all the kindness and respect to the harmony bowl,
carefully pour into the friendship bowl.
Stir the relationship and give a handful of acceptance.

For words

Thank you for the words I read
Thank you for the words I need
Thank you for the words so great
Thanks for words that raise debate,
Thanks for words on my bookshelf
Thanks for the words I make myself
Thank you for words that make me cry
And words that leave me feeling dry.

Thanks for words that do inspire
And those words that burn like fire
Thanks for all the words I note
Thanks for all the words I quote,
I thank you for the words like me
Thanks for words that set me free
And I thank you for words like you
I always need a word or two

Thanks for words that make things plain
And words that help me to explain
Thanks for words that make life fun
And words that help overcome,
Thanks for words that make me rap
Thanks for words that make me clap
Thanks for words that make me smile
Thanks for words with grace and style

Thanks for all those words that sing
Thanks for words for everything
Thanks for all the words like this
And little sloppy words like kiss,
Thanks for words like hip-hooray
And those cool words I like to say
Thanks for words that reach and touch
Thank you very, very much

This poem is by Benjamin Zephaniah.
