At The Riding School

I went with Maya and Ted to the riding school.

Despite the fact that, after five years, Maya soon wants to take a break from the riding, I love to watch her ride. She is so elegant on a horse. 😊

And Ted enjoys watching too!

   
    
   
I have to make the most of going while it lasts! πŸ˜‚

English Club : Hot Air Balloons…

We started the class with some parachute games outside…   

 I realise these children are 11+, but they still really like to play, and some of them get tired and restless sitting at our kitchen table for an hour and a half in the evening, after a long day at school. So I’m going to start the lesson with a game – as often as I can anyway…😊

After this we started to make our papier-mache hot air balloons…

            

We are moving on from the topic of ‘air’, to the topic of ‘fire’….. 😊

 

A Wet Froggy Sunday!

Yesterday it POURED with rain all day!
So we had a wet froggy Sunday – with froggy (mostly) fingerprint pictures….
