Notlatinetc

A very quiet Wednesday, just us and the Beans, we were hopeful that the fishes would turn up but unfortunately they didn’t 😦 but it didn’t stop us being amazingly busy!

Started off with craft making tealight holders – painting some jars with glass paints and making beaded handles. Simple but fab craft πŸ™‚

This kept them busy long enough for HH and I to have a good natter over a cup of tea πŸ™‚

Whilst crafting we also did some quiz jar questions. Whilst waiting for some to finish others did some workbook stuff – Skye and Pops did English and Spelling whilst SB did music theory and bb explode the code πŸ™‚ So far so good!

SB had made some yummy biscuits to share πŸ™‚

They had a bit of a play outside, bouncing on the trampoline, tree climbing and swinging πŸ™‚

Then we had lunch πŸ˜‰ After which we continued with real science 4 kids about starches – dropping dilute iodine onto foodstuffs to test for starch. HH also showed them how to make invisible pictures with lemon juice.

The girls sat with HH and discussed the experiment, writing their objectives, hypothesis, results and conclusions into their books.

Onto the final activity, HH had bought along some childrens french reading books and we encouraged them all to take turns reading aloud. This has made me realise that although the girls know quite a bit of french, reading it is more of a struggle – most of the words they know but seeing them on paper completely throws them! Will definitely look at getting some books for home so we can practice. πŸ™‚
