This will be the last weekly summary for a while. Billy certainly won't be stopping learning, I'll just be stopping recording! I'll still post anything extra exciting that we do.
Current Readaloud: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Roald Dahl's "George's Marvellous Medicine".
English: Lots of reading - more Choose-your-own-adventure books.
Maths: He watched a couple of Cyberchase episode about inversing operations and scale on bar graphs and did some sums in a puzzle book.
Science & Technology: We did a rust experiment which failed spectacularly lol! The one in the glass *didn't* go rusty and the one under water did! Oh well, Billy did at least learn that metal needs oxygen and water to rust!
We wrote secret messages using onion juice which showed up when we ironed the paper.
HSIE (Human Society and it's environment): The For the Juniors show this week was about New Years celebrations and the different customs, so he's learnt all about resolutions!
Our homeschooling group had a history day - the kids dressed up as an historical figure and we played games based (loosely) around historical games. We played 'newspaper hockey' (Ancient Greece), 'chariot racing' (Ancient Rome) and 'balloon Aztec ball' (Ancient Meso-America).
He watched a video of the Horrible Histories series - "Terrible Tudors". He thinks it's very cool that Henry VIII was Queen Elizabeth I dad - he seems to have an interest in her!
Creative & Practical Arts: Drama class - more practising for their play which is coming up in a couple of week's time.
We made our scarecrow as I posted before.
He went to an Art day at the art gallery, saw the new exhibitions and made some drawings and dioramas.
PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education): Circus class, swimming at a friend's house, and another trip to the pool.
Life skills (cooking, gardening, housekeeping): Decluttering his books to sell on eBay!
School shows: Numbers Count, Spelling with the Spellits.
Other fun stuff: His Joey's group did more Xmas craft this week.
