The Ugly Bug Ball


Henry's year group has been studying bugs all term, much to the delight of Henry and his friends. To celebrate the end of topic (concentrating on all important Christmas celebrations for the rest of the year) he teachers and kids put on a concert. Dressing up was optional but encouraged. Henry decided at the last minute to go as a bee. Luckily Matt had also dressed as a bee many years ago so I had a fair idea of a quick costume, with wings, a stinger and duct tape stripes on his top.

The assembly with the concert was one of the most enjoyable ones I had been to. The kids sang half a dozen songs with Henry's favourite - 'the redback on the toilet seat' - spiders AND toilet humour how could you go wrong with that!!

I used a Sketchy Thursday sketch for this lo, kept it fairly simple as the background of the photos made it hard to see his costume and any more coloured papers just made Henry less obvious - and we can't be having that!
