WedEd – Sewing and Science

An hour before our friends started to arrive for this weeks WedEd I started to plan the art and craft activity! Thankfully it worked well πŸ™‚ We began with creating our own embossed design by cutting out a design from cardboard, gluing it to some paper, covering with another sheet of plain white paper and holding carefully, coloured over the top in coloured pencils.

Next we took this idea to do some sketching and then recreated it using felt, which is fast becoming a favourite fabric in this house πŸ™‚

Skye is planning on making a patchwork bag with her designs πŸ™‚

After lunch and a play at the local park, Merry and co left, leaving just HH, SB, BB and us for science. We have reached the last chapter in our RS4K Physics syllabus and as usual HH made it fun πŸ™‚ Their task was to design and test their own experiments.
They all did a fab job and helped each other to set up and test. There was of course fire involved, well if you give children the opportunity to use ANYTHING they like then fire comes top of Poppy and BB’s list, but in fact ALL their experiments involved matches and fire lighting!

Dit it work?

Yes it did! πŸ™‚

Not forgetting Health and Safety πŸ˜‰

Skye planned her experiment but it’s not been tested as she was far too busy sewing πŸ™‚

There was also some French reading and vocab as well as lots of playing.

I enjoyed being left to babysit Bene whilst Merry popped out – he was as good as gold πŸ™‚

We missed Em and co being there though – hope you feel better πŸ™‚
