A bit of catching up
Thought i would add a few photos to brighten things up – think the last lot have just about disappeared now!
First of all we went to Sealife at Hunstanton – not helped by the thumbprint on the lense, here are a few from there.
Aw… i just love seals… ithink Moo could have been one in a past life – she has the eyes! (although she is NOT keen on fish!) This place is a sanctuary – they had 6 babies waiting to be rereleased and 2 old stagers who live there – one is blind from mistreatment by a dealer in seals :~( and the other is a bit short on brains and doesn’t try to eat!
The fabulously patterned Rays – i really love these – i like how the poke their noses out of water!
Scruff really loved the penquins and went to get Moo to show her…
and frankly, who could resist????
The Raymond Girls, out in force!!!!!
Here is a bit of Puds writing – she was REALLY chuffed with this – and so am i – i have had to try really hard to relax about writing!
You can probably guess the recent favourite film… all together… “Tooooooooooooo….morrow….!!!!!”
Today Pud and i did a School Express unit on the Ocean. I have subbed to this site as i don’t feel very confident on the sealife thing and it has several good units on things of that type. I have no desire to follow the units religiously, but they are good jumping off points, for me as much as anything. We got talking, among other things about the sea bed and continental shelves and it prompted this, a quick plasticine build of a landscape which we gradually filled with water to see mountains turn into islands (And yes, the most impressive thing about it was that i could find the plastincine!!!!!) She was really intrigued and did it over and over again.
It has inspired me to make the Montessori landforms with her.
We went into town this afternoon, got a great world jigsaw with my Boots points and some BBC magazines to have a play at. Moo was shattered; she did walk into the house from the car but by the time i got in from locking up, this was how she looked!!!!
Must have been all that work on triangles yesterday…
