Our first week back!

So today is the first day back at ‘school’ for my daughter. As we home school the lines are blurred somewhat as we have done things over the holiday that are actual learning opportunities, but today it is back to more formal stuff

This week we will be looking at:

  1. Solids, Liquids and Gases: what they are, how they work and examples we can find. Design a hot drink cup, concentrating on what made of (insulating etc), how you carry it, does it get hot on the outside or do you need a handle, anything else?
  2. Stickpeople: Make Stickpeople from resources found in our woods. Give them some background and make an animation.
  3. Make a mini den for something / someone. Discuss what is needed and why, who will use it (fairies, bugs). Take photos and present your findings.
  4. French Conversation practice. (design a conversation to have with horse riding teacher – we live in France at the moment so this is not as bizarre as it sounds!)

This is not exhaustive, there will be Maths, Coding, sport and random things we decide to look at they may just present themselves. Reading too! though luckily I have to admit that getting her to read is never a problem!

Whatever you choose to do, I hope you have fun!
