Tag Archives: well more betterer
Well, today we had the first rehearsal after our half-term break. It was ok. If we had several weeks before our performance, I would be feeling nervous about completing it in time but confident we had a spell-binding show on our hands.
We don’t have several weeks!
We have 19 days!
I am not normally a man prone to panic; I feel comfortable that I can deal with most situations but the slow, creeping dread of dress rehearsal day (16 days away) looms near and shows me that we are not going to be ready…
Just to add a couple of other variants into the mix, we have three days out for our French residential and a couple of days worth of transition (by a couple, I of course mean 4 or 5). There is also sports day (Olympic-themed of course) and many other mini-things that all eat away at our all ready over-crowded and rapidly-diminishing timetable.
Having said all that, I feel good. We have a talented cast and once the make-up is applied, the blood is made and the lights are on… we will have a show.
By the pricking of my thumbs… something hectic this way comes.
Just a quickie this time… click the LINK and go see the Witches.
‘…those black and secret, midnight hags!’
So, for a while now we’ve been playing with phrases and words at school. Some of which, dear blogger, you are familiar with: blogtastic, Beauty Street and of course, the famous and wrong on so many levels – well more betterer.
It’s been our mission (Mr Thurlow’s and mine) to get these words into the year 6 mindset and further afield – the digital ether. Check previous posts and you will see that we are slowly sneaking these phrases, courtesy of the Waldram Dictionary, into the lexicon of everyday life.
Our mission: To wait until a primetime BBC newsreader uses the tag #wellmorebetterer at some point in their breaking news. Job done. Kick back. Retire. Simples.
As part of this two-man crusade, I have created a new Twitter ego: wellmorebetterer. His part in the mission is to source out tweets and blogs that are deemed well more betterer and to promote them to the world. Again, simples.
So, watch out, listen up and join the masses. You too could be well more betterer.
I get to see an awful lot of adverts for children’s toys now I watch nothing but children’s television. The majority of the items being advertised are, let’s face it, garbage. Plastic garbage that will be lucky to see out boxing day before Grandpa sits on it, daddy bins it or child realises it is what it is: garbage.
So, for today’s delectation, I saw Doggie Doo being advertised.
I’m sorry, is this a game where you get to pick up poo?! I thought you could go out on the streets and do that for free?
Will wonders* never cease?
