After a “not so great” start to the week, (with my car failing miserably on it’s MOT and leaving me car-less) we managed to get to Nanny’s yesterday to spend the day and the girls had their swimming lessons.
Today, ahead of our trip to see Inside Out on Friday, we have spent some time learning about emotions. Discussing different emotions and trying to create them with our faces, playing a game making silly faces with parts of the characters from the film and finally making our own characters.
First we looked at the slides that came with the microscope, then we went hunting for more things to look at. We looked at a chrysalis (butterfly) and a cocoon (moth). We looked at leaves and bugs. I also put a tiny drop of my blood on a slide. At 150x magnification you could just make out the cells. I think I was possibly more excited than the children!
We’ve also spent time playing Lego, Playdoh, Warhammer and Just Dance.
After lunch Little S fell asleep on the sofa so the older girls and I headed out to the garden to carry on with a rather large project we’re working on. Hopefully it will be completed at the weekend and we can show you all.
