"Do you know what is special about a Wombat?" I recently asked the class I was teaching.
"It has cubed poo" the Learning Support Assistant eventually answered.
"Yes, correct ha"
They also thought the Narwhal's pointed spire was his nose, but it's not though is it, because if you watched my recent poetry video, you would now know that the Narwhal knows his nose isn't actually a nose.
They are keen to watch the Wombat video too, and suggested my next one could be about an Alligator Snapping Turtle.
Off course, we've all see one of those in sunny Surrey.
They really enjoyed writing poetry and performing it, they were totally engaged and immersed in their creations.
Children are naturally present, mindful and playful when we allow them to be so.
