Robot Stop Frame

Standard

So,we’ve been talking about our ideal imaginary robots, Tig has been building them from Lego and Ot has been playing on Roblox (it’s robots honest mom!).  We’re all up to date with Whizz, spelling, drill maths, ‘dictation’, passport (which is our quick mental maths stuff), Ot has 1 reading eggspress book done, Tig has 2 but I’m not sure that the reading level is right….B has learned quite a few new sounds, done some nubers and tweezer stuff but is still in a crazy mood!  the heating/hot water is still bust but the dryer is fixed.  I am feeling better but tired and we haven’t done much Robot project stuff except this which Tig and I have been working on:

Stop frame with collaborative soundtrack

 

And here is Ot and B’s version
