The Six Worst Excuses in the World by Jessica and Millie in Marlin (after Claire Bevan)

No 1: The dog ate it.

No 2: I put it on the desk next to the doggy treats and the dog jumped up like a flying bird and accidentally ate it.

No 3: I was practising my tap dancing and I was like a pro, when I trod on it and it flew into the air and into the huge volcano at the end of my road and flew back out and the dog ate it.

No 4: I was singing on my karaoke and I was as good as Lady gaga ad I was kicking and dancing when suddenly it flew onto the lamp shade and my dog flew like a dragon and ate it.

No 5: I was on my way to the moon and I was nearing the sun and I was allowed to go outside with my homework when my dog pushed me and I let go of it and my dog tried to save it but instead he ate it.

No 6: Mrs Liverside, I know I’ve not got my homework, but I’ve got a present for you instead: SUNGLASSES!!!

The Six Worst Excuses in the World by Ava in Marlin (after Claire Bevan)

No 1: the dog ate it.

No 2: I finished it then it poured down with rain and it got soaked, when it was dry, the dog ate it.

No 3: I accidentally dropped it in the toilet and then my dog ate it.

No 4: A giant as big as a sky scraper came and raided our house for my homework and then he got arrested and the dog ate it.

No 5: Suddenly Neptune appeared, he wished our house away, we washed up in California on the beach, the homework dried and a piece of talking cheese ran away with it, so my dog chased it, demolished the cheese and then ate it.

No 6: Here is a ticket to see England play cricket in the finals against India. Actually that one works rather well.

The Six Worst Excuses in the World by Abbie in Marlin (after Claire Bevan)

No 1: The dog ate it.

No 2: A big ugly pigeon came through my window and took it, but he dropped it and the dog ate it.

No 3: Santa came and saw my homework and took it to give to my teacher, but he dropped it down the black chimney while he was climbing up it and my greedy dog ate it.

No 4: We were baking and we accidentally got my homework mixed with cake ix, it was as slumpy as slime, it was gross and pink and my annoying dog ate it.

No 5: The muddy hand from ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ came and took it off my clean kitchen side, as clean as a hospital ward. I grabbed it and put it back on the side, my dog jumped up and ate it.

No 6: Here is a pen from America with your name on it. Actually that one works rather well.

Wish You Were Here….

We’re all off to Croft Farm on Wednesday 15th may until the end of the week. If we can get a Wifi link, perhaps we will update the site from deep in the Cotswolds.

Behold…. Xavier’s Cockentrice

Xavier in Marlin followed up his roasted boar’s head by stitching together a rabbit and a chicken to make the legendary Cockentrice. This was a mythical creature, brought out at feasts to amaze and amuse the dinner guests.
