A day in the Fairy Godmother's life!




Hello! I am the Fairy Godmother. I am very happy to meet you! Would you like to learn about a typical day in my life? Maybe if you do all this, you can become a fairy godmother or a wizard too!

First, I get up at 6 o'clock. I never get up late! Fairies are always busy, so you have to start really early to do everything! Then, I go to the toilet to brush my teeth. After that, I have breakfast. I have two waffles with jam and a big cup of hot chocolate for breakfast. You have to be really energetic to do magic and a great breakfast is necessary!
After having breakfast, I start my work: I turn on the computer and read all the mails of the people who need my help. Sometimes I help people in Argentina; sometimes I help people in India, or even in China! I get on my flying carpet and...
                                         
fly to different places!
At 5 o'clock, I come back home and have some tea with toasts. When I finish, I study magic or take flying lessons, or sometimes I fix my magic wand! It works day and night, so sometimes it doesn't work properly.
I have a shower at 7.30 pm and then I have dinner and go to bed. I always read a book before I sleep.
As you can see, my day is always busy! But I love my work!!

A seed's journey... or... The process of POLLINATION

We travel by bus, by car, on foot, by plane... But plants don't have feet or can't get on a bus. But they do travel, like we do. So, how do they travel?
Seeds may travel in the water; birds may drop them; the wind may blow them away; or people may plant them.
Let's watch this video that shows this journey seeds make, or POLLINATION, as botanists call it.

Parts of a plant

Plants have many different parts, which have specific functions. Let's remember them!



Now, have a look at this video about parts of a plant

Verse Competition . "The Cow" by Robert Louis Stevenson.




The Cow
by Robert Louis Stevenson
 
The friendly cow all red and white,
I love with all my heart:  
She gives me cream with all her might
To eat with apple tart.
 
She wanders lowing here and there,
And yet she cannot stray,
All in the pleasant open air,
The pleasant light of day;
 
And blown by all the winds that pass
And wet with all the showers,
She walks along the meadow grass,
 and eats the meadow flowers.
