February Half Term at Waterstones

on .

We at Clickety HQ love a good old fashioned storytelling knees up, so we decided to do just that. We are honoured, delighted and very much excited to have been invited to Waterstones Truro and spend a day reading waterstones logostories and having fun.

As Cornwall slowly sinks beneath the endless rain, we will pack up a trunk of books and a bag of fun and head to Truro to spread a little half term sunshine.

Tracy's Race

on .

Hello! It’s me, Tracy the Pacy Plaice.   

Let me tell you the story of the great Clickety race. As you know, I am the swishest fish you could ever wish to meet. In fact, wait there...I am back! I just swam 100m and back. Did you even notice I was gone? That’s how pacy I am.

Now, I was swimming around the other day, quickly of course, when Mark the Sparky Shark appeared overhead in his massive sparkly ark.

‘Hello Tracy,' he shouted out to me.tracy-image4

Chinese-maskHappy Chinese New Year!

The Chinese year of the snake is over and the year of the horse has begun.

We have a mixed camp here at Clickety Headquarters. Jake the Achy Snake is a little bit grumpy, but Clip Clop and Orsa the Saucy Horse are over the moon. Orsa is adamant the year has been named just for her.

The Chinese New Year is celebrated on the first day on the Chinese calendar. This calendar is based on the cycles of the moon, and this year, New Year’s Day falls on the 31st January. Celebrations begin on Chinese New Year’s Eve. The year of the snake will be waved goodbye and the year of the horse will be greeted with joy.lantern1

RSPB Big Schools' Birdwatch 2014

on .

Our natural environment has the power to engage and inspire us; but do we really take the time to embrace it? RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch is an initiative asking you to do just that. For the next few weeks (January 20th – February 14th), the charity are asking children to take an hour to revel in the fascinating feats of our feathered friends. Aiming to ‘help give nature a home at your school’; the initiative is by no means restricted to the playground; designed to encourage all children of all ages to engage with nature.
