Upper Juniors Blogging Homework
We have all been fascinated by the arrival of our resident Blue Tit in the birdbox outside the Upper Junior area. Thanks to our wonderful Site Manager Mr Pritchard, who installed the webcam and TV monitor, we have been able to keep a watchful eye on her progress (including her haul of precious eggs!).
For your homework this week, please blog a diary written from the point of view of our feathered friend. You will need to remember:
- to write in the first person and past tense
- to write about events in chronological order, using time connectives (early this morning, a few minutes later, towards the end of the day)
- to include feelings
Word Count Challenge: As you know, the key to a successful blog post is quality and quantity. Therefore, each diary entry needs to be a minimum of 100 words. Please count them when you have finished and record your word count at the end of you blog comment.
Today was quite an eventful experience: I’ve never known such torrential rain to fall whilst nesting. I’m very thankful for the handy box which appeared on the wall a couple of weeks ago.
Just as the sun was rising (at approximately 6.15am), the heavens opened and the sound of the rain on the roof was quite a rude awakening! I was not impressed. Unfortunately, it was my job to gather breakfast (worms again) but I did wait for the weather to brighten up.
Whilst gliding over the roof of All Saints, I spotted a couple of juicy delights emerging from the damp ground and, with instinct taking over, I swooped for my ‘catch of the day’, before returning to my precious eggs. There I stayed for the rest of the day, in the comforting surroundings of my humble home. Until tomorrow.
PS I’m yet to work out what that odd red flashing light in the corner of my birdbox is……
