Current Readaloud: Famous Five - Five on a Secret Trail, Artemis Fowl
English: Not much reading on his own this week.
Maths: Lots of 'Living Maths' - adding prices at the supermarket, measuring while cooking etc. We also played a few games of Monopoly.
Science & Technology: He made slime using a kit he got for Xmas. He's also been working on making a new website.
HSIE (Human Society and it's environment): Reading the 'Famous Five' book introduced him to Romain ruins, coins and pottery so I pulled out a kit called 'The Roman Child' which had cardboard 'replicas' of pottery & coins. He had a brief read through the book.
Creative & Practical Arts: He moved his keyboard into his room and has been practising 'When the Saints go Marching in' some nights. I must find something other sheet music for him!
PDHPE (Personal Development, Health & Physical Education): He started a martial arts class which he really enjoyed. He also spent time at the playground when we went for a picnic with another group of homeschoolers.
Life skills (cooking, gardening, housekeeping): He's spent a fair bit of time in the kitchen this week - among his accomplishments were pasta and apple crumble.
He's been helping Pete out with painting some shelves for the office.
He sewed a door stopper (bag filled with rice) to go behind one of the doors.
School shows: Not on yet.
Other fun stuff: He got a new xBox game for a late Xmas present and has been busy mastering that. He's scarily good at it! A friend of his came over through the week and taught him a few tricks on it as well.
