I think this might be one of the longest breaks from blogging in quite a while. Nearly a fortnight to catch up on!
It’s been a meh one really. Had Jack home for 3 days last week ill and then Sam was full of cold. I’ve very much felt like I’m going through the motions and not up for things that require a lot of energy and drive from me.
We’re on target with Maths and English though. Not so good with reading, Latin and Spanish. We do seem to be making very good progress on the English and Maths front though so will take the success and be happy. He’s starting to embrace creative writing and the drawing of comic strips has restarted.
Science we’ve looked at tectonic plates, nothing exciting to report as not really doing anything new. We have been watching Rise of the Continents which is really good!
Finished off our look at the origins of the Bible with some drawing, thinking of the images and emotions displayed in the Bible. This is the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve being banished.
We’ve moved on from Spies to Europe as a project. At the moment we’re mainly plodding through worksheets from a study pack but actually they are working well for us in current frame of mind.
Other things we’ve done is start to get in the Halloween spirit. He made a costume for the cubs party.
We’ve also nipped in to the new exhibition at Gosport Gallery about the evolution of dinosaurs to birds (something that was a pet subject of Jack’s) and had quite a few trips into various libraries. Lots of books read. We did manage a big trip to Kidzania in London but that one is worth a post of it’s own.
Glad half term is upon us. I need to find my mojo again.
