So instead of our usual 1/2 hour maths & verse, followed by main lesson work, we got comfy and I read her the story of Jesus and the crucifixion, and the story of Easter. The children's bible we have has little historical side paragraphs and present day pictures, which helped her understand this in an historical context. We had a good morning discussing what different people believe about Jesus, and ended up looking at Leonardo Da Vinci's painting of the Last Supper online. She likes Da Vinci, so we got a little art history in as well.
After lunch we started to rearrange our nature table. She ironed for the first time, the material we had bought, which was actually 2 nylon curtains. It's actually pale yellow & pale green. Sorry not a very good photo and we've not quite finished yet.
I still think Mother Nature is a bit scarey!
Then it was off to Brownies, where they made Easter cards. Thank goodness for our lovely Brown Owl who gave Issy lots of praise for arriving at the hall promptly with no help. They made some Easter baskets with chocolate eggs - devoured on the way home!
Issy had a little go at needle felting the other day and we had cut a little heart from her felt. We decided to put this in her doll I'm making, as it was my wool and her work we decided the doll's heart would be a little bit of both of us.
So now I need to get on with finishing her. Issy has designed and drawn pages of clothes she wants for her!!
