Murphy's visit on 23 October
"Today you're with Year 5!" they told me, but on the way, everyone in the library wanted to say hello, which was great. Wag, Wag!. When I got to the reading area, the tables were covered in poppies, not red ones, brown ones. Funny. I wondered if they were chocolate. I licked a bit. Yuk, no they weren't.
Then suddenly, Year 5 arrived and I was really happy to see them. I lay under the table, listening snoozily while I learned about sports day, times tables and Jill getting a new bike. Such good stories!
I do love Thursdays, but home time always comes too soon. Luckily I always get a great walk when we finish.
It's a holiday next week, so keep reading!!
Licky Lick, love Murphy
More News From Murphy
So today I was with Year 6, and I learned about hamsters, Aunt Petunia and how to control your parents. All very useful, and I was just getting comfy when right above me, a loud, jangling noise made me look up. It wouldn't stop and everybody had to go outside. I liked it outside because I got to see the children lining up all together! It was tricky lining up on my own though! Funny, nobody had a book with them, so we went back inside to where the books are. Maybe in the summer, we can read outside!
Year 2 Open Afternoon
We had a huge turnout for our Year 2 Open afternoon and received some lovely comments from the visiting parents. Here are just some of them:
We found the school spacious, the teachers nice and the children ploite.
The children were energetic and infectious about their school!
Very helpful and polite guides!
We found the school inviting and a happy environment to work and learn!
My child is looking forward to joining the school. Thank you!
The teachers were welcoming and friendly!
A message from Murphy our Reading Dog
It's really happening! I've just started my new job at Calmore Junior School, and I'm loving it! It's not difficult - I just have to sit nicely and listen to the children reading. They read about dinosaurs or firefighters or the ocean - anything really, but my favourites are animal stories! I learn SO much, and while I listen, I get to be stroked or have my tummy tickled, so it's all good! Can't wait for Thursdays now!
Calmore Productions arrived at the Junior school last week and recreated the famous fairytale Hansel and Gretel for the children. What a treat
