Our days are always full of fun and variety and this weekend has been no different. Here is a photographic summary of the highlights.
Doing knitting with Mama. It required LOTS of concentration.
Facepainting (badly by me) and roleplay.
Making a jigsaw.
Making and eating a Mexican tea with our friends Stacey and Lyall. We are making and trying food from different parts of the world this week and tonight it was Mexico.
Posing for Lyall’s camera
Learning to draw Rangoli patterns for Diwali next week. We will work on understanding the colour symmetry next with Beanster. Moo turned hers into an abstract art piece.
Moo drew a picture of her family.
Harvesting, weeding, flying an improvised carrier bag kite and making a bench at the allotment. Beanster was very proud of the seat she made.
Having rides in the wheelbarrow.
Observing a mouse which Moo found.
Looking at and discussing the results of our bread mould experiment from HE club. In this experiment you had to touch bread slices with unwashed hands then washed hands and ziplock bag the pieces of bread. After a few days we were to look for mould growth :
Moo’s piece of bread touched AFTER she washed her hands.
Moo’s piece of bread BEFORE she washed her hands.
Beanster’s piece of bread BEFORE she washed her hands. She forgot to do a clean hand version. She said, ‘Hmmmm I think my hands are maybe the germiest.’ Yeah I think she could be right.
Helping prepare the dinner. Tonights food from around the world was an English roast dinner using allotment veg.
Doing some of our Okido Arts and Science magazine.
Talking about her work with Mama before bed.
Tonight our bedtime stories were Mr Fussy, Gobbolino and an animal poetry book. Both girls were later spotted reading books in bed with their torches.
