new school idea

how about if school was in a nice house in the country, near hamilton, with gardens, native bush, animals, rugby posts, a scrum machine, etc. and while we were there, from 10 'til 3, we decided amongst ourselves what we REEEEALLY wanted to do, then worked out how to do it. then we could keep in touch by internet, socialise at school, do a bit of planning, have work experience, talk to experts, be taught different things by people who were passionate and knowledgeable, play games, keep fit, make and grow stuff go on field trips whenever we felt like it in our magic school bus, make movies, save the world, etc.
waddaya reckon? what would your ideal 'school' be like?
please answer thoughtfully. it would actually have to be 'educational'. not just play time.
seriously,
monsieur woody

p.s. there would definitely have to be chooks there.

p.p.s. onyl self-motivated people would be allowed to attend.

Oh does that mean i can't come, it would be Aswome (is that how you spell it?) I mean will the Magic school bus be like the one out of "the Magic school Bus"? Pleaseeee!

Mr Woody said...

why wouldn't you be able to attend?
aren't you self-motivated? then you best find a new class next year too.
you wicked child!
;>)
and no - i don't know who you are -unless you're the loud talkative one.
i better check out your blog to see if i can work it out...

Donkeyla (Aly-Blobber) said...

Yes I am.
Woody is the wicked one!

Donkeyla (Aly-Blobber) said...

Yes I am self motivated!

Urxan said...

Ah... an awsome idea Uncle Woodles. If there's a writing course I'd love to enroll to this 'dream' school of yours!

Til when I once again come forth from the mist,

The cat is back!
Love the idea of your school Mr.Woody. Would this school have state-of-the-art up-to-date electronics? I hope I'll be allowed to enter.
MEOW!!!

Sig said...

YAY for the chooks!!! anyway, my ideal school would be a nice little local school which was sort of like a farm. I know, I know. a lot of people would rech at the idea of going to school on a farm kind of place, but it's fun. Ohaupo school is kinda like a farm cause its in the country. anyway, it would have a nice deep swimming pool (but you could still touch the ground) and have art, drama, dance and enviro clubs. it would also have lots and lots of greenery!! that would be my ideal school. Thank you for reading. =)

I think it would b really cool 2 hav a school in the country. But i'm not so sure about havin chickens there, i'd prefer bunny rabits!

Sig said...

O yeh, and it would also have as little maths as possible and as much reading and writing as possible. It would have a giant library with all the jacqueline wilson books in it!!! Thanks for reading!! =)

Sig said...

and how can i forget.......ART!!!!! Thanks for reading!! =)

Sugarsweet4eva said...

My ideal school would hav no maths, lots of art, a free puppy and kitten 4 every student, and a beach, it would b sooooo cool 2 be able 2 walk out of ur class room and onto nice soft sand, i reakon we sould move our class 2 surfers paridise in oz, now that would b cool! oh and the beach would hav 2 hav a candyfloos stall and WARM water!

Sugarsweet4eva said...

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

Sugarsweet's idea isnt that great...but i think mr. woody's is

Donkeyla (Aly-Blobber) said...

YEH go SUGERSWEET4EVA,
I agree with you, (apart from the bit about no chickens ahhh.....I love chickens) getting off that, it would be great to move to oz (well our school any way) and walk out on soft sand.
Tata.Bye

Donkeyla (Aly-Blobber) said...

MR WOODY,
Hey i would like to invite somone in to talk about hamilton is that a good idea (like about the enviroment).

Mr Woody said...

very cool idea allyblob. check with me on the details before you do anything.

8>)

Mr Woody said...

th egiant library coul db ecalle dth einterweb, or somethin glike that. we can download books from the net now onto pda's, computers etc.
of course i still think books are extra special.

Mr Woody said...

did you like my special unedited typing, kids? it seems to make you laugh in class.
as for moving to oz - wash your mouth out a-b!
best beaches here too

Mr Woody said...

catgirl - well done - but can you do something with your blog? we'd like to visit, read your ideas and leave comments.
woudllove to read your blog urxan. your writing is top shelf, as is catgirls and miki's. in fact all you girls are talented writers. i hope the boys start to produce the goods - ernesto showed the way! mr brainy is on the rise - you're nearly there mr brainy!

Mr Woody said...

hey mr brainy - i visited you but there is nothing at either of your blog sites. wassup with that?
i really like your music interests - have seen the chilli peppers live. met the drummer from acdc. he was rude.
what kinda stuff would you like to do at school?

Sig said...

Mr Woody please check my blog because ther's some very important info on there that I need you to see. Thanks for reading!!! =)

laffydaffy said...

My idea of a school would be near a wood so we could study the nature, have animals, No 10000% more art and reading and dancing or someding 2 do with music, some maths and out going there activities

bubbles!

Mr Woody said...

totally amazing ideas, laffydaffy! we can do that - in fact mr stevens, ms brennan and i have been hoping someone would come up with the idea. you could even write and illustrate short stories to read with them. or do them together, or whatever you think is a good idea - why not ask the e.s.o.l. kids what they would like to do - then you help them. or come up with the ideas together.
any thoughts?
maybe we could spend lunchtime walking to ham east and working with little kids on reading, writing, etc.
or helping at woodstock in their special unit. i bet the kids there would love to hang out with you guys.

laffydaffy said...

yeah! we could organise with da junior team and we'd spilt up in2 4 groups and do an activity.

Bubbles!!

p.s. i have got an question 4 my science investagation

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

i dont even KNOW wut to do in my blog site........-_-;;

【※ 『§mr. brainy§』 ※】 said...

GIVE ME IDEAS!!!!

Mr Woody said...

Urxan - talk to Amal about next term's writing programme.

catgirl said...

Sog-if there was no maths, you wouldn't know anything about pie, square roots or algebra, which could make it harder to get a job in later life. I used to go to a small country school-but it wasn't as lovely as this dream one. It was pretty cool though. Also sugarsweet4eva, some people might not be allowed to have a puppy and kitten. Mr. Woody-I told Dad that we had to have a note saying we were forbidden to have a blog-he said he'll think about it! Yay! Can our library have every book in it, not just all the Jacquline Wilson ones (they can be a bit boring at times, and it's not fair on the boys. At least I'm not sexist!)
Meow!

Mr Woody said...

Catgirl - please enlighten us all as to how pi and alegbra will help us get jobs in the future.
or were you talking about pie - which is always good for enhancing job opportunities. i prefer savoury pies in winter.
perhaps we could do a net based interview/search for people who actually use tricky maths in their jobs.

laffydaffy said...

Or if technology was used a lot more, technologists should come up with an invention that you could go to school but be at home.

bubbles!

P.S. but i like my first suggestion better

laffydaffy said...

I forgot, writing!! Am i allowed 2 cum??? Is it a bording school? Is it gonna happen 4 real?

Bubbles

P.S. evry body cum 2 my blog!!

Sig said...

I just like the Jacqueline Wilson books thanx, and I didn't say ONLY her books. and anyway, I HATE MATHS!!!!! just cause you're good at it.

I would like it to be a bording school as well.

KEEP SMILING!!! =) =) =)
P.S. by the way, its what YOUR dream school would be like. not everyone elses. DUH

Howdy! said...

And who sed ne thing about being sexist?!

my dream school would be in the country.
there would be no maths,and that's alright with me as i don't plan to have as little to do with maths in my later life as i can!
Oh Yea, lots of writing,P.E,a big library and heaps of cartoony art!

haha and it would haave to have the proper farm animals, that we would have to feed and things, u kno, sheep,cows,horses,cats/kittens,puppies/dogs!
And lots of chickens(MUCH better than bunny rabbits- *yawn*)!
it shud b a boarding school, but we stay at home on Sundays!
And i agree with sugar, we shud have a kitten or puppie for evry student, but only if they want one!
and a big swimming centre with hydro slides and diving boards,hot pools,wave pools-a bit like wet n wild in oz!
and mini golf courses,theme parks,golf buggys to get around instead of cars,and a GIANT bouncy castle that ahd different levels!

if i went 2 that school, i'd be living the life!
