What do you see?
“Well Dad I see a fox on a motorbike crashing into an alien while being chased by seahorses.”
That’s better than my Lego Ninjago Ghost Warriors playing cricket….
Lying on the ground seeing what pictures the clouds can paint. It was always a favourite of mine as a kid and it’s the same with our son. I’m pleased he still enjoys the game. It’s good to exercise the imagination every so often. The best thing it’s free. Unfortunately in Yorkshire it’s often just a plain grey sheet we can see.
In Nursery and Primary school they did provide the kids with a platform to dream and play. To let their minds fly. Secondary school is different. Suddenly it’s all change. No play, no freedom, no room to imagine. The lucky few if they can act or sing or dance or play an instrument can get into the school performing scene. For the rest it’s just facts and rules for them. 100% focused on exams at 16. Nothing else matters.
Is that really in the best interests of our kids. Or is it just about feeding the system. Justifying the Government Target Policy. I think we know the answer to this.
So back to the clouds. What do we see now. That big cloud looks like a hippo at a watering hole.
“I’m just seeing something big. Something very big. I’m seeing my dads belly. That will block the sun out for days…”
