A few weeks a go, when the sun was still shining, Ted and I went on an ‘adventure’. We took a small picnic, and took the bus, and the train, to the ‘troll park’…just a little park.. but we weren’t disappointed…
We still have plenty of apples left on our trees…
2 lemon slices
15g baking powder
5) Take apple mixture off heat, remove lemon slices, stir in sugar, and pour in to a deep pie dish.
6) Cut 6cm circular (or in our case, squared!) shapes from the dough, and place overlapping eachother over the top of the apple mixture.
7) Place in oven at 180C for 30 mins….
Two popular books around here…
…easy for Alfie, but he’s highly amused by the different monsters and the cute spiders….
So while we’re at home recovering from chickenpox, inspired by ‘Nurture Store’, we tried a little magic ghost maths…
Write the sum, get them to answer, and write the ‘secret’ answer in white crayon on the ghost. Get them to paint over in black watercolour to see if they counted correctly.
Fantastic fun and very simple! ;)
We have a wonderful book of Halloween poems, just right for english club…
Despite not being yet four years old, Ted sometimes makes his own breakfast. He often makes a bit of a mess, and sometimes he might not make the most healthy breakfast (for example, a chocolate drink with a chocolate sandwich…) – but breakfast it is, just the same.
So today there seemed nothing strange in him making his own breakfast. However, I didn’t expect this….
We painted. With primary colours, thick and thin brushes, and classical music….
Ted was overjoyed at making colours. Alfie was overjoyed at teaching this to Ted….I was overjoyed with Alfie’s squirrel….
It was lovely… :)
Many moons ago, when Leon was very small, he had a huge interest in aeroplanes and things that fly. Being the first child, and having so much more time, we extended his interests as much as we could – and this included buying a toy experiment hot air balloon.
So deep in the depths of the cupboard, we found it the other day….
