Thanks to our super early 4.30am start to the day, we got a lot covered. (drawbacks of living out of cities is no public transport links for hubby to make his 5.30 am train into London, hopefully he will be driving himself very soon though:-)) After breakfast was sorted at 6.30 it meant we had time to do some more structured work. Bailey is working on his Computer Studies IGCSE so he was busy doing that, which left the younger three doing their maths books, some comprehension, including a Roman piece for Cordelia and then it was time for a little bit of art. Continuing on from our previous posts today we had a go at Van Gogh's sunflowers. We had an interesting talk about Van Gogh and his suicide, and the children remembered a previous Dr Who episode in which he featured. We used watercolour paper and oil pastels instead of paints, which was the children's choice. I love how they all approached this painting differently:
Seriously impressed with their pictures today.
