Daddy even joined in the fun game, surprising them with his very high throws!
When they had finished with climbing, we headed towards the play equipment. This didn't last long though as they spotted seed pods growing on the trees. After I had commented that they reminded me of conkers, which we used to battle with, the girls decided to invent a game with these less sturdy pods :)
They decided to hit them together one at a time and see whose was strongest. Adele was delighted to find out what was inside :)
The brown one is Josef with George out of Peppa Pig.
The girls and I have been reading about Australian animals. Adele has finished her report on Platypuses. Avril and I have read about Koalas. Avril narrated to me what she had learned, for me to write down. She then illustrated her work.
Here Josef is making his turtle and the girls have made some snakes to go along with our unit of study (classifications of animals).
Damon finished preparing his oral report on explaining the factors that are needed to be considered when choosing an airline. The family was his audience and he did a great job.
Here is Damon entertaining the littlies!!
The kids had been watching Serious Explorers. This is a series on ABC about a group of children chosen to go on a months exploration away from home. The kids love it!!
I was delighted to find them play acting being explorers in the back yard, building tents and pretend fires. They even used branches that had been pruned to make a jungle!
Adeles camp fire...
I love watching what they come up with in their play. Homeschool is great for encouraging time for them to do this!
We have had unusually warm weather for the end of winter, which has been great! The kids talked us in to putting the sprinkler on the other day when it hit 27C. I thought it would be a little cool, but they were determined and had a great time!
