So this week we’re looking at thunder storms, rain and Reubens amongst other things. Then next week it’s tornados and hurricanes and then we have about 5 days to wrap this weather topic up before we go away!!!
Monday went well weather wise, we whizzed through how rain was made, read the thunder storms part of the magic school bus research guide, watched some brain pop and made a pop up of how a rainbow was formed. Both Ot and Tig wrote really good explanations of how we get rain and Ot’s understanding of condensation is getting much clearer. B made a huge tower with E from the Quatro blocks and had fun playing with the letters and watching a bit of TV. Ot and T could both explain how hail was formed but their writing wasn’t so good-maybe because they’d had enough and the flap book was teeny!
We did some playing in the garden and lots of screen time in the afternoon, everyone was either playing SIMs, watching you tube or generally having a lazy afternoon!
I managed to remember to feed and water the plants and then it rained-prob a good thing as the scatter on food needed a better water in. This morning the wild flowers under the climbing frame (deliberate honest) had the first poppy-looks lovely from the window-I love poppies and daisies and corn flowers.
I need to get on with the ironing and breakfast!
