This week’s make was Matthew’s. His school is a Rights Respecting School, and the children there created a creature called Beegu as a focus for their for learning about rights respecting activities.
His homework assignment involved making a “Rights Respecting Friend” for Beegu and then writing about him.
This is Boeuf. (Note: we helped provide a spelling which matched the pronunciation he was using).
(I guided the method of construction, given materials at hand and time scales, but the design was all Matthew’s).
Boeuf has yellow button feet and all of the holding together bits are wire. He has beads all around the wire that the Yellow buttons are on. He has two faces with painted on eyes. He has pipe-cleaner arms and Green buttons for the bit holding his legs on to his faces. He’s a little bit shorter than my drinks bottle.
What are the qualities of a good friend?

Write about Boeuf.
Boeuf’s rocket booster feet help him move around really fast in the water and in the air. His favourite food is mint ice cream with chocolate sauce and chocolate stripes. At night Boeuf sleeps above where his food is. Beegu and Boeuf play hide and seek most of the time.
