An eye for Magritte

Ok, so blogging is behind, by about 3 months…..so I am working backwards…..at least I have started blogging again!

We declared today as our official get back to work day as Wayne was also going back after being off since before Christmas to have the operation on his neck.

Skye started with some maths and Poppy carried on with a lapbook she started last week on hamsters. They both did some reading.

As of Wednesday, we are starting the Physics workbook so they read the first chapter of that together πŸ™‚

Merry dropped off M, A and J whilst she went off for a hospital appointment. We began with card making, Skye made a birthday card for Poppy and M, A and J made cards for Merry as they both Poppy and Merry share a birthday tomorrow πŸ™‚

Next was lunch, finished their cards and then we walked the dog, played pooh sticks on the bridge and stopped off to feed the ducks πŸ™‚

Back home, after discussing the surrealist artist, Rene Magritte, we looked at some of his work and concluded that he liked naked women, curtains, bowler hats and apples!! We then created some of our own surrealist artwork with the help of this fabulous website.

Once artwork was done they all played Just Dance 3 on the Wii, played a role playing game and did a quiz using questions from our quiz jar πŸ™‚ There was also lots of hamster adoration as we got Poppy a hamster for her birthday…….meet Nim πŸ™‚
