I know I haven't updated for a while - we have been busy. Busy preparing for the visit, putting together work and sorting out our "schoolroom" displays. We have just started a number of projects for the winter 08/09 term -
- The Solar System
- The Great Space Race
- Famous People through history (display not shown)
So be prepared for updates of how we are getting on with it all :o)
Hmm, what else have we been doing in our absence. Well, during the half term week, Joseph took part in a football training 2 day scheme. He thoroughly enjoyed it, seemed to get on well with the others, and I was very proud of his enthusiasm to join in with whatever they asked of him. It must have been tough, going along to something on his own, knowing no one. All of the others seemed to know each other either through schools or football teams, so for Joe it must have been daunting trying to fit in. He came home with a certificate and a t-shirt, along with many new skills and tips he had learnt.
Chelsea has been spending a lot of time with the girl next door. So nice for her to have a girl of her own age living so close after a few years of having to put up with boys lol.
Tiegan is still very much enjoying her Rainbows. She seems to have slotted into the whole group dynamics thing very well, and literally skips along the road each week when we walk there. She also seems to be learning a fair bit from the activities they do which is good - this week it was about Bonfire Night, the previous week it was Bugs.
Callum really is the dream child. Enthusiastic about everything, wanting to learning about all that goes on around him, thoroughly enjoying being a little computer whizz, playing on neopets and club penguin websites. He is like a little sponge, soaking up knowledge - knowing his letters and being able to count easily to around 50. He makes us all laugh with his comical facial expressions, his cute sayings, and the way he emulates his favourite WWE wrestling stars.
