Back in August I wrote out my supply list of what we needed block by block of activities. All well and good but that does mean I look at the list in January and think what on earth can we possibly want wet mud for for Maths of all things?
Turns out we were drying it out and working out the volume of water removed. We had to cheat as not a hot day and bake it in the oven. No wonder Pete looks dubious at what he finds in the kitchen at times, think he’s scared of accidentally eating a science experiment!
More hands on maths (yesterday’s work to catch up on too!) when we looked at displacement. Never stops being fun 🙂
Sam also made story stones. We managed one sensible story about Thor (there was a man with a hammer) and Loci. The second one had more stones added and ended up a lot more surreal with a carpenter becoming a mythical knight and battling Donald Trump. Who died and turned into a giant flying snake that got nucked by the Russians!
We did manage to catch up on all our ‘core’ work from yesterday. After lunch and an episode of Victorian Farm we ran out of steam though and rather than do a very practical science session curled up and read one of the My Story books we’d picked up on the Victorians. This one was on the Workhouse.
