I took the children to watch a karate class last night to see if it might be something they really want to do. Nathan was quite excited and the teacher (Sir) invited him to join the class. You have never seen such a happy boy!
During warm up, Sir had all the children sit with the flats of the feet together and had them 'flap their wings'. Sir said "I'm a green butterfly. What are you Isaac?"
Isaac said "I'm a bat."
Sir asked each child what animal they were. We ended up with a bat, and several butterflies. Until Nathan. Sir asked Nathan what animal he was. Nathan said "I'm a rhinocerous."
Sir said "You're not flapping your wings!"
Nathan said "Rhinocerouses can't fly."
