Here we are! We made it to the end of of the summer term! No more school! No more nursery!
We’ve dabbled in a few bits and bobs this week but nothing too full on as we’re still finding our feet.
We made coloured ice cubes, and did an experiment to see what would happen if the cubes were mixed up. Then we made sundials and attempted melt a marshmallow using the sun’s heat with a bowl covered with cling film, it didn’t work though. The girls did a bit of Mathletics and Reading Eggs on the laptop and then we made shapes and structures using mini-marshmallows and cocktail sticks. These were very popular and the girls must have sat for near on 2 hours to see who could make the strongest structure.
But today we took it easy because both girls were up very late last night: J thought it would be a good idea to take them to the park at 7pm!
This morning I was very impressed because I didn’t think much of what we were talking about was going in but they both told J all about what sundials were for and how people used them long ago before clocks were invented! They were listening after all!
However, for most of the day there was A LOT of grumpiness around so we watched Madagascar and attempted to have an ‘end-of-school’ party (as per M’s request) but it was an absolute flop as both girls wanted to referee the games. I didn’t much fancy playing musical bumps on my own. We still managed to make (and eat) cakes though, along with sandwiches, crisps and party biscuits.
There we are then, my first ever post on my first ever blog!
