The Sandaig blogs have been running since 2004, it is now time to move to a newer system for the schools blogging. We have installed wordpress and are going to use that for most of the blogging at Sandaig from now on.

The new blog address is:
Where you will find the sort of posts you use to find on the old Sandaig otter's blog, the poetry blog, Sandaig TV and all the other blogs. The only exceptions are the Head Teacher's blog, which is staying right were it is: HT News and the Eco blog which will move to http://www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/eco.
If you link to the Sandaig blogs you may like to update your links. The older blogs will stay here for reference but comments will be closed in the near future.

I have a wish to have a pet
It lives with me not with a vet,
It never gets sick it is cool itís the monkey police officer and it rules.
It saves my life and plays with me and it keeps me very very happy.
It may kill someone when itís mad with me after the argument and we are back to friends weíll go shopping and thatís the END.

I wish I had a big giraffe to get my washing done,
First it would turn it on with its little feet,
Open the door with its big tail,
Grab the clothes as if it was a treat.
Then it would flip it up and slide them down his back
Shut the door then the water would attack.
He would open the door again and grab the clothes out of the washing machine
Then he would slide them down his back and stop them with his tail.
Then it would hang them up on a line as red as a laser beam.

I wish I had an ugly monkey.
I would get my windows dashing.

Then the monkey is washing he windows and itís looking very smashing.

A bucket of water on his brown fury tail,
On his right hand a blue riband.

Then Iíll use my evil eyes to see faint mistakes Iíll really hope thereís none or else heíll not get his bun when heís done, or have so much fun!

I wish I had a kangaroo,
To take my bins down stairs.
So I can sit back and relax,
And maybe eat some pears.

It would use its tail,
to shut the door behind.
It would get fed whatever it wanted,
Just for being really kind.

Its pouch would carry the lot,
Iíd hide it from my mum and dad.
So then I wouldnít get caught,
and the wouldnít be very mad.

I could sit in itís pouch,
All day long.
Then at 5,
We can play ping pong.

At the end of the day,
when the work is done.
We can celebrate,
with a burger and bun.

The giraffe on your window

I wish I had a spotty giraffe to make my windows clean,

Tail to hold the bucket and a neck as long as a stream.

To reach the high and low windows o that giraffe is a dream.

That big long Tounge to get the dirt in the corner
O I really Adour her.

That giraffe I would never keep in a hutch
But sorry giraffe the door is on the latch.

Lemur poem

I wish I had a fancy lemur.
To get my messy room done.

It would make my bed with its tail.
Iím sure it would never fail.

With its tongue it would clean my TV.
Make it all shinny and gleaming.

Hang up my clothes with its paw. Then tidy my papers away.
It would be so very cute everyday.

Get my remote control and tidy it away any day.
With its third paw it could wash any dirt clean today.

And the hardest job of all goes to the fourth paw, making sure the lemur doesnít fall at all.

We would have so much fun together.
Maybe I would offer it an really nice iced bun.

Tiger poem
I wish I had a tiger, to tidy my room It would hold the brush with its tail,
And scare my sister out with the face of doom.
It would be cool, to hear it wail,
Give me rides around my house,
And creep around like a mouse!
By Jamie

I wish Iíd had a Dog
Iíd get him to make my bed,
And he will Hoover my floor.
While I got fed.
I would get him to wash my window.
He folds my clothes and put them away,
Opens my curtains and blinds.
I would not give him away.
He will put the rubbish in the bin.
He will sparkle up my room.
He will clean out my wardrobe
And then I will give him a groom.
By Michael

I wish I had an elephant who would make my life more fun.

It would clean my dadís filthy car and scrub it all day long,
It might even do some more but hopefully itís done.

I am really glad to have him to do it all day long.

He even does the washing up, oh how he is so great.

I canít believe he does it in 1 tinsy wincey day.

And while he does all that he even dose roar.

He will hold my bags until I do my filthy dirty chores.

My wish to have an otter!
Is to take it fishing with me!
Iíd call him Mr Potter!
But he doesnít live in the sea!
He could catch the fish, scratch them!
Even patch them up!
And when he falls asleep at night he looks like a little pup!

I wish I had an octopus,
To get the garden done.
To help me do the weeding,
And make it much more fun.

To tidy up the garden,
Using all its powers.
Watering the plants,
And planting all new flowers.

When finished cleaning the garden,
And plenty of time to spare.
He could wash out side the windows,
Before resting on a chair.

Now his chores are finished,
He can put his slippers on.
Sit back and relax,
And admire his pretty lawn.

He then goes into run a bath,
Before he makes a bite.
He eats his food and has a drink,
And then he says ďGood NightĒ

My Colour

My colour is sweet as a pony

My colour is juicy as ice

My colour is bright as a winterís eve

My colour is cold as frost bite

My colour tastes like fresh snow falling from heaven

My colour smells like fresh carnations

My colour sounds like doves singing in the night

My colour feels like a snowman standing in the garden

My colour looks like angel wings flying over head

My colour makes me sleep

My colour is white.

By Gillian P7J

My colour

My colour is like blue berries on a hot day

My colour is the colour of the sky

My colour is the colour of some fish

My colour is blue

My colour tastes like juicy blue berries

My colour smells like the nice wavy blue waves

My colour sounds like beautiful blue waves

My colour feels like swimming in the blue sea

My colour sounds like the sea

My colour makes me happy

My colour is blue
