A bit of a catch up

Well I haven't blogged for a while, mainly because Oscar hasn't been very well. Last Wednesday we went to our home ed group where the children continued with their Solar System project and then they all made a fish decoration.

Then Oscar and Seth managed to sneak off and get 15minutes on the computers.

Not long after we left the library Oscar said he was feeling unwell so we came home. He was unwell for the rest of the week so we didn't really do anything apart from lie on the sofa and watch films.

This week we have been to see The Lion Who Wanted to Love at the Theatre. This was different to things Oscar has seen before as there was a small Orchestra on stage and a singer/ storyteller. The singer explained to the audience that we needed to join in and help the orchestra tell the story. We were given different noises we need to make (monkey sounds, parrots etc) and a song to sing. The Orchestra then played, the Storyteller sang and we all joined in. Afterwards the children were all given some paper where they could write their own music and the musicians were all able to read every type of music so they moved around the theatre and the children got to hear their music played on a variety of different instruments. Unfortunately my photos aren't very good.

Oscar had a wonderful time and it's a real pleasure to see him start to really appreciate music.

The other thing we have been doing this week is weighing and measuring so we made some muffins.

And some banana flapjacks.
