Mid week sleepovers are a bad idea!!!

Woke up to two very grumpy, tired girls this morning!! Reluctantly did some maths – long multiplication, tried various methods but both find column method the easiest. It was the way we were taught at school -I do find the way they teach some things now very long winded and confusing!! Wrote out 8-10 long multiplication sums for them to do, which they did with very little, if any, help.

Both worked through another topic from World of Science workbook on the life cycle of a plant.

Joined up their ds’s for a bit and then spent half an hour or so after lunch looking through some factual books and encyclopedias.

Poppy and I made a curry for tea and then we all popped to the bank before Poppy’s horse riding lesson. She absolutely loves Wednesdays – riding day – today she was riding Pickles. She fetched him with one of the helpers from the pony stables and led him into the arena, then whilst the helper was adjusting the girth, she asked Poppy to hold the reins and at this point Pickles had a bite of Poppy’s hand!! She was very brave and didn’t make a fuss – I got her attention to check that she was ok and she said she was fine but had a bruise. Poor Pops…when her lesson had finished she came over to show me and she had a purple bruise on her hand and it was also a bit swollen!  Thankfully it hasn’t put her off and Andrea, the owner of the stables said she could ride Charlie next time as he is the only pony Poppy hasn’t got to ride – this pleased her as she has been looking forward to riding Charlie!

Home for tea – curry was lovely!

Girls adopted a monster each on MoshiMonsters – had a little play around with that, then bath and bed.
