Lately, we have been looking at an image based on the story about a king gifting his children a pet dragon – which had large wings, and can breath out fire – on their 5th birthday. Not being aware of the dangers that dragons may cause, the king put up the risk and surprised the boy & girl with a dangerous pet. The king made his final decision, as he knew that one day his children will take over the throne & wanted to do the best for them. As a result, this led us to the discussion, “Is it okay to gift someone something dangerous, if it could help them one day?”
Dragons may be useful in many positive ways, and we can not reject this point. However, despite the beneficial ideas, it is mainly about the children’s safety. I disagree with having a dangerous pet because it can harm others or put them at a risk. Because of this, the fierce beast can cause a lot of accidents & prevent many disasters in the kingdom. The children are too young to deal with these creatures, and they can not handle this all by themselves. In addition, the dragon can breath out fire. This is very unsafe not only for the royal family, but also for the villagers. Due to the fiery breath, the dragon can make a catastrophe, and eventually cause deaths, which could possibly lead to an end to the kingdom. Some choices are good, whereas others bring suffering.
Dangerous pets remain a big responsibility & extra work in order to take care of it. Such a scaly dragon with large, mighty wings must be under the care of a sensible owner. Who is going to feed it? Who is going to clean after it? Who is going to take it on a walk? I consider the king himself has many other duties he must accomplish, and the children are too young to handle this beastly creature. This dangerous dragon – which was too much to handle – needs a lot of attention & involves a lot of hard work.
I truly understand that there are many positive opinions on having a pet dragon, however we must choose wisely for the safety of the children, and the good of the kingdom. Until this is denied, it is a safer option to keep the dragon away from humans. We know that children must stay protected & should stay unharmed. It would be better if the dragon lived among other dangerous creatures.
Super writing, Vicky and you have truly shown many different points in this argument and put forward your opinions in a persuasive and descriptive manner.
This robot has the ability to make child think deep in their imagination and picture a image of their thoughts. As a result of this, children can develop their minds and forget about sitting in lockdown.
Robot RED – also known as Robot Engineering Design – shares ideas on how to have fun, but also gives advice when doing homework. It was as if it is was a teacher – just a version of the robot!
As a result of this robot, I would like to charge it £24.99, so that people can eventually afford it. The money earned will be used to make more of the robots, so there will not be any profit from it, it is just to make everyone happy. Many people have lost their jobs because of the virus, so if anyone couldn’t manage to buy the product, the sponsorship will do as much as they possibly can to buy it for them. The delivery will be for free, so the customer would not need to worry about paying extra pennies. When they receive their order, they will get an instruction sheet attached to the robot. It will also contain a letter for the child as well, so it will get to know the robot, too.
Wonderful work. I’ve given you some feedback on Seesaw.
I can’t continue like this anymore; I miss my school, friends & family! What’s next?!
As you may know, coronavirus – also known as COVID-19 – is spreading worldwide very quickly! Shops close, masks are worn, people forced to stay at home. People are infected by this virus, and the NHS (National Health Service) advises not to go outside often and to wash your hands.
But what about us children? How will we get our education?
My successful school – called Huntingdon Primary School – also had to close down. /However, this does not mean that at this point we stop learning. To continue our knowledge, we are set different challenges and tasks on an app named Seesaw. We work as usual, but we just do it at home.
It’s hard for me to tell if I like to study at home. But I can only say that I hope that in the future everything will be better. It becomes really difficult for us to travel anywhere now! To be honest, I do whizz through my work very quickly, which gives me more time to help my younger sibling complete his work and spend time with my family. In addition, I would got outside into my garden just to breath in some fresh air and do some exercise. Easter is approaching, and me and my family are starting to put up decorations at home! I can’t just wait for the day to come! Of course we don’t really plan to go anywhere, but at least I’ve got my family round. It’s a thing that matters.
I do hope everything works out. Protect the NHS. Wash your hands. Stay Safe!!

Thank you Vicky for this well written diary entry on your thoughts and ideas at the moment. It sounds like you are making the most of each day and spending time with your family- which is the first, and foremost positive thing you can do. If you do feel down or bored, remember you could always blog. Blog a story or some facts you have created. I always find writing and being creative is a great way to mentally “get away from reality” for a little while. Feel free to be as creative as you want- I may take a break for the holidays from reading blogs but I will be excited to see what you have written. No pressure at all- if you want to, go for it but if you don’t, then you don’t!
