Magic & Mischief - Part 1

This week Jack came home with his latest Creative Homework Project: Magic & Mischief, Spells, Fairy Tales and Pirates

As usual there are 5 areas for Jack to choose from: Art/DT, Dance. Music, Writing, and ICT. This time Jack has been swayed to try a Music project! "Learn a Pirate Song" so we've planned a fun little Google and YouTube search to find some good ones for him to pick from.  (I will be checking first without him to make sure I only let him discover age appropriate songs, Pirates have not always been known for their PG rating).

He wants to give the Art/DT project a go again - he loves these and I do too. We're making a boat from different materials, e.g. stuff from the recycling box, and thinking about what we are going to use that will be suitable and why.

The third part he's chosen to do is the ICT which this half-term is to use a paint program on the PC to make a map of a fairy tale land which might feature things like castles, forests, giant beanstalks, etc.

It's going to be another fun project! Watch this space and don't forget to click the Homework tag for more!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
