This week Arden and I have been working on numbers- using the JUMP curriculum and also modelling them in modelling wax.
Gabriel has been working on the second half of his astronomy block. He's been looking at moon phases, and constellations this week as well as doing some reading and writing about Venus. Our form drawing took the form of an old style compass to compliment this week's work.
This is mine.
Willow has been busy working on her last segment of history for this block- reading Dr Zhivago, and looking at the Industrial Revolution, WW1, WW2 and the period of peace in between. I decided that Dr Zhivago would make a good book for this period, as it covers the Russian class system, the Revolution and changes occurring due to war- so a fairly broad scope of some of the issues of the time. She's decided to make the focus of her written piece, this time, about Cadbury, and how ethically minded he was regarding his workers.
Meanwhile she's getting very adept with her circus skills. Here's a one handed handstand!
