The weather was so beautiful on Tuesday that we just had to go for a walk! The dog was a bit restless and needed to have a good sniff and run around as dogs do. We set off for a local walk, which is so lovely and quiet (well obviously not when we are walking there but you get the idea...) Cordelia and Ruben found this lovely big branch which then became a horse!
Do Try This At Home'. Its so much fun! We had a go at their hot air balloon experiment, we had to fold and cut sheets of tissue paper (we only had halloween patterns left!) and glue them together to form a hot air balloon. Then we had to use the hair dryer to put hot air inside the bottom of the balloon.
Think of a Number'. It has a lovely history about where the first numbers came from (Babylonia) and so we sat and made some clay tokens like what was used 6000 years ago. Well I should say that's what we started doing but by the end we were more making mini-figures! Still it was a good way of teaching the kids to think of symbols to represent objects. We also learnt a great trick to remember our 9 times tables (wish I had known about it when I was their age!)
