Alfie's class has a soft dog called Floppy, so named from the Oxford Reading Tree series of books where there are children called Biff, Chip, Kipper and a dog called Floppy.
When Floppy comes home he brings with him a diary and a digital camera and your child is expected to take photos of what Floppy has done as well as draw a picture and write a short sentence.
This weekend it was our turn. It also happened to be the one weekend where we had no plans. Absolutely none.
The weather was beautiful and unseasonably warm and all we were going to do was chill in the garden - which doesn't make a good diary entry for a 5 year old! So, we cooked the sausages for tea on Friday night on the barbecue and Floppy helped, he also helped us to plant some carrot seeds on Saturday morning. I think we did pretty well considering!!
I didn't think it was appropriate to include the witnessing of grown men fighting over reduced yogurts in Tesco though.....
