Happy Friday Year 3, Thank you for working so hard this week and we are so proud of the work we are seeing. We will be sending certificates out to those children who we have seen lots of home learning from to either the email addresses you have been using or we will place them in a blog post. So you can see. Keep up the great work and look forward to seeing you on zoom! spring1day4 [Autosaved]
Tricksy by nature, pixies particularly delight in tormenting humans. For this reason, they can be found living in suburban and rural areas, and sometimes even in the parks of cities, anywhere people frequent. Ranging between two feet and the height of a human child. Pixies (also known as piskies) make their homes in the hollows of logs, lean-tos formed by felled trees and in gardens. Unlike boggarts and brownies, pixies never live inside houses, preferring the outdoors. They sometimes can be spotted alone but are more commonly found in groups of three to five. Their desire to dwell in groups placing them in the trooping category within the Invisible World. Due to their prankish behaviour, pixies are remarkable in colouring. Their clothing is usually natural in tone, all the better for hiding themselves as they wait for someone to fall into their next trap. Like many fairies, pixies dislike rude, greedy and cruel people and often single them out to be victims of their pranks. Pixies are particularly known for knotting hair, leading people astray and pinching skin black and blue. Pixies also have a fondness for stealing horses. An excellent sign of pixies presence is small items going missing. Have you ever been under a magnificent oak tree only to get hit on the head with an acorn? It was probably a mischievous pixie.
