Pond Skaters and Digestive Tracts

Bee in the photo is wearing a very nice Organic Tatty Bumpkin sweatshirt, which arrived in the post for him, but with no details of the sender. So, thank you somebody. It fits very nicely. He came up to me one day with his hands as shown in the picture saying ‘whats this?’. It turned out to be a pond skater with it’s reflection. He spends a lot of time trying to model things with his hands.

The picture he drew today is of a man showing how his food is decided (he meant digested) and all the details in the hands and feet show the bones. I don’t think we’ve looked at any pictures of a digestive system yet, so he must have just made it up. The second version shows the duck that is following the man.

One of the things I’m really enjoying about Home Educating is watching so much drawing, ‘reading’ and ‘writing’ just happening without any prompting on our part. He has access to all the drawing materials etc., but I never suggest he might like to do something with them, he just gets them out and works on things himself.
