Friday 29 November
In history we studied more about Boudicca and her battles with the Romans. She sounds brilliant. I like that she had long red hair.
This afternoon we made treats for the Christmas bazaar! I made chocolate hazelnuts and fudge, while Jude made chocolate oaty treats and peppermint fondants. Fondant is great because you can do anything with it. You can dip it in chocolate or stick leaves to it, or make it shaped like mice, or turn it pink with beetroot juice. The fudge was so nice I wanted to eat it all.
I am really looking forward to the bazaar because it’s so much fun. There is always a raffle and a bric-a-brac stall and a stall where you can buy knitted tree decorations and a games stall and a lucky dip where you close your eyes and pick a prize.
They also have a mystery jars stall which has lots of glass jars wrapped in Christmas paper and you pay fifty pence to buy a jar without knowing what’s in it! Sometimes the jar will have cotton wool in it, or sweets or toys or buttons or jam or anything. Once I got a jar full of mint imperials, which I wasn’t too keen on at first, but after I ate some I really started to like them. They also sometimes have a game where you have to name a teddy bear, which is how Jude won those bears we drew in art.
Find out what Jude and her sister got up to in December – Chapter 3 coming soon 🙂
