catching up . The girls had a fab arts award on friday on pointillism, which both were really taken with. they had a magazine photo which they reimagined. They also loved the fact that they went by bus for a change. so successful was this, that i see them doing this again in the future. Here are the finished works of art.
SB has worked hard with her home ed bookwork this week, and certainly powered through some music theory, feeling slightly hopeful about the grade 4 theory on november! SHe has started on galore park syrwtl english book 2 [thankyou alison] and is enjoying it. also maths and science and her new italian workbook are popular. less so geog, french and history. she has started blogging too [link on the side] , and is planning to expand the blog so it will be able to be printed out for her arts award later on. she does need to add more about the artists and techniques, but think it is a good start.
At the weekend – hence title above! – we went for a walk with friends to an RSPB place. we used to walk monthly there with them, which we v much enjoyed, but went a bit by the wayside over the years. It was a lovely reminder of good times shared going round on saturday, laughing over the various waily disasters we had had. We also were looking for funghi [sort of ] and birds [m did best there] and generally chatting as we strode forwards . It was a lovely day for a walk and the initial sun only turned into torrential rain and then hail when we had made it back to the cars
and for a bit of now and then… [last photo added as the first pic bb joined the pair in the throne tree ]
Ending with a lovely meal, more chatting and games playing back at their house – great day/evening
