We all loved the trip on the horse and carriage..
Still waiting! The queue was long :)
We checked out the heritage pigs..
Then we were off to make a scarecrow..
Josef chose our clothes. A Thomas the Tank Engine shirt, jeans and a Barcelona scarf.
There was many things to see at this event. They had a fashion show of outfits worn during different eras in the 1900's. We toured the house which is decorated as it would have been in the past. We watched a lady spin wool and a man make brooms.
Just before we left the kids decided they wanted to check out the interesting fig trees.
Our studies into animal classifications has led us to the arachnids group. This week we looked more closely at the spider. The kids watched The Magic School Bus Spins A Web and we read about the different types of web a spider weaves. We have also been reading Charlottes' Web alongside this unit.
Here is Damon trying to nut out his math problems. We encountered a challenge in maths this week, so we have persevered and been able to conquer it this week. Well done, Damon!
The girls have been set the task of finding out more information about one Australian animal. Adele has chosen the platypus, Avril hasn't chosen yet.
Our task this week was to create a sugar glider, so we decided to try and sew one :)
This was Avrils first time on the sewing machine.
Adele has been spending a lot of her time reading Mandie, a christian adventure series. She loves it and is onto the second series of books.
We brought Mr. Scarecrow home. We found him a pole and stuck him in the garden. Now just to build a veggie patch for him to guard :)
