Chocolate Cake By Michael Rosen

In English, Bluebirds have been taking part in a debate about whether it was right for Miss Dainter to just have a little taste of the chocolate cake that Mrs Parry had brought into school to share with the teachers. Without her knowledge, Miss Dainter did have one small slice of the cake and found it yummy.
The children took part in conscience alley; this is where they each say their side  for or against Miss Dainter eating the chocolate cake.
For not eating the cake:
Yusuf: She did not have permission to eat the cake.
Anren: It’s not right because Miss Dainter ate it right in front of the class (not a good role-model.)
Charlie: It’s not breaktime and Mrs Parry said it was for then.
Musa: She couldn’t stop herself from eating the cake ( no self-control.)
Declan / Aya : She may have been hungry but it was not breaktime yet.
For eating the cake:
Tatenda: She felt left out as it was only for the teachers.
Alexander H: It was teasing and too tempting for her as she smelt it.
Elias: It’s not fair that the cake is only for teachers.
Sam: Teaching Assistants work harder than teachers so she should have the cake as well as the teacher.
Shriya : A teacher just does the marking whereas Teaching Assistants help everyone.
We then enjoyed Micheal Rosen’s Poem called Chocolate Cake. You can listen to him reading it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWrOeNKvtHI
