After a bit of a puzzle pause, JJ has suddenly begun again. Today he brought through the Cars puzzle, and then in the afternoon the solar system puzzle, and this evening he has been working on a book of digger puzzles. (I just love listening to him as he talks to himself ” This piece goes here…maybe not…oh, here it goes….and this one must go there…..and this one can go here….no, it can’t…..here it goes….”.etc etc
Bee and Mip have been drawing Dawn Treader pictures (on chapter 5 now) and they’ve also had the ink stamps out today.
We went over to the play park in the afternoon. Bee was given a disposable camera as part of a birthday present (with the idea of taking winter wildlife photos) and we took that with us. He very much enjoyed finding things to photograph, and had to be persuaded to save some film for later in the week. We’ll take it down to the farm with us on Friday.
And what else today? Maths and poems at lunchtime, …….I think that’s all I can remember of today.
Saturday we spent at the farm with friends; Matt and L busy discussing ideas for the home-ed Wiki Matt is working on. Sunday we were at church in the morning and had plans to go to a wood in the afternoon. But Beth slept at an inconvenient time, and we were less pro-active than was needed, so the children went no further than the garden for an hour or so. We are trying to really prioritise making sure the children are playing outside every day, even if it’s only for an hour.
