Fran and Maddy worked more on their art projects; slightly staggered by how much they’ve got into this actually but the concentrated research they’ve put in, effort on presentation and computing skills has impressed me. Both more interested in “finding out” and “writing up” than doing any art but it makes a nice change to see them so engrossed in something entirely self directed that i can only gape and let them carry on really.
Everyone did music.
Amelie was very busy with her ticklist, which she really likes, and worked very hard doing little bits of everything.
Fran and i looked again at rotational symmetry and got to the end of that chapter together; she finds spacial stuff very hard but really applied herself today and got through lots of reflection work. Please to see her pleased with herself.
Maddy did pretty much the entire co-ordinates chapter in her book and got all them right; she liked those. Despite doing no written maths for ages, EC has proved really good for her. She’s met and got a grip on nearly every topic and all the book is doing is boosting her understanding of the workings. She’ll be ready for book 3 soon.
Everyone read, Amelie did “Investigating” on houses again and Josie spent ages writing bits and bobs out. She likes writing numbers 🙂
After that everyone set about some sewing; Fran and Amelie are particularly into this at the moment. Once we’d done some setting up of that, we put on the next episode of The Incredible Human Journey and watched it together.
Sent Fran out to gym with Zoe and fed everyone else then took Maddy and Amelie out to try Rhythmic Gymnastics. Amelie loved it and Maddy wasn’t sure but wants to give it a bit longer and see. She loved using the ribbon though.
Fran had a hard session (got 65 pressups!) but seems okay. Home finally!
