Monthly Archives: September 2012

Busy, busy, busy….

September 2012 looks like being the busiest month ever on this blog, beating the   previous highest total of 2625  page hits from March 2012. A big thank you to everyone who visits our pages and a special thanks to everyone who leaves a comment (some of last year’s Mounts are still following and commenting too!).

Here’s a link to the game that everyone keeps asking to play:

STOP PRESS: The final total for September was 2691 page hits. Wow!

STOP STOP PRESS!!! The first day of October was the busiest single day yet, with 259 page hits. Most of them were probably Anna in Moneybury, who has commented on lots of posts!!


Maths Challenge

Well done to everyone who took part in the Maths Challenge at Ashlyns this afternoon. Although none of our teams won, a lot of mathematical thinking was undertaken, there was a surprising amount of running around  and a good time was had by all. Well done to the members of the BBs and The Best and Furious who were among our highest points scorers today.

Cameron’s Black Jar

Look away now if you are of a nervous disposition.

In the Black Jar of Wisdom you will find –
a wizards dragon which can see the future,
a fraction of time which has been stolen from an elf’s bag,
a head full of maggots from the fifth dimension, feasting on the brain.

Evie’s Jar

In the blue jar you may find –
the longing of memories,
the sigh of the sea,
a drop of the sun.
In the cream jar of mysteries lies – 
the shimmer of the moon gone rogue,
the touch of a cloud,
the dazzle of many, many diamonds.

Skye’s Blue Jar

In the blue jar of fantasy stories you can find
The shell of enchantment,
A scale from a magical mermaid,
A sparkle from a star.

Libby’s Jar of Dreams

In the blue jar of dreams you will see –
the clearness of the sky above the clouds,
the crashing of the flowing waterfall,
the foggy image of a crystal shining in moonlight.

Katy’s Confession

My Mistake

I made a mistake when I left the 
hair dryer on….
I made a mistake when I let my posonos
snake out….
I made a mistake when I let my frind play
with a tiger….
I made a mistake when I let my mouse
sleep at the nexdore nabours house….
I think I made a mistake when I said
to the seals you can sleep with a cilla whale….
