In FIAR this week we are slowly rowing Madeline. A suggestion for an activity is to discuss why major cities are often situated on a river. We did discuss this, but thought it would be great to discover how our local town used to make use of it's river.So off we headed to discover information about our local river and its' history.
The kids also explored the environment. They investigated seed pods, leaves, insects and grasses.
Josef enjoyed playing in the autumn leaves!!!
And we all enjoyed a picnic lunch...
Then we headed to the library for some extra information and stories about our local area in the past.
She decided this week that she preferred FreeReading (and I agree), so we continued with A and M letter recognition and sounds.
MEP maths is still a favourite...matching shapes and finding the same and differences.
Left and right, hot and cold....
One of the FIAR activities that Adele did this week was to write a rhyming story, like Madeline. Adele surprised me by doing a really great job at this!!! And very easily too!!
Fridays are our days to hang out with friends...
