PJ Day is the best day of the week according to Sam! I’ve got to admit I really value having a day at home a week too.
The day was all about creativity. After the usual maths, English, Latin and Spanish out came the craft supplies and he worked on natural sculpture and collage.
It was Sam’s idea to use clay. I need to stick to my guns next time and remember Sam likes the idea of clay but hates the reality! It is okay to say no!
After lunch Sam wanted to build Lego. He hasn’t been interested for ages but the Lego club magazine had come through the post and he actually picked it up and read it for the first time in probably a year. Then he dug out the Lego ideas book.
Seemed daft to quash the creative burst so he built and I read aloud from the History of India for much of the afternoon.
We then had another attempt at ‘Civ5’ which fortunately worked. So Sam spent the rest of the afternoon honing his military strategy and I made salt dough for a home ed session we had today.
