This week year 6 gained 99% attendance so Attendance Monkey came to stay. We were very much looking forward to his visit as this would be his first visit and we knew that, if he was anything like Attendance Bear, he would be very helpful in the classroom.
How mistaken we were! What a naughty Monkey! He swung from the display strings, jumped on the bookcase, stole the Egyptian mask and ran around on the tables knocking over the pen pots. Worst of all, he encouraged Pink Thing to be naughty too and she was very unhelpful when we practiced our tables.
It is very easy for naughty behaviour to spread amongst friends so we will be looking for really good children to teach Attendance Monkey the behaviours expected from a Wells Primary pupil.
