Weather Reporting...

... was the subject of today's home ed meeting. C gave a talk about how weather works and then set all the kids making various weather devices for measuring. She done a really good job and we've come home with a variety of things to fix up in the garden tomorrow. The idea is the kids will take recordings over the next few weeks and compare their results.

Issy was over tried, sick and has a flare up of her eczema so was off school again! Obviously the school is getting grumpy as its SATs time. Fortunately we have a good LA Home Ed advisor and I've had a long chat with her and she gave me some very good advice and support. So hopefully we can make it through 12 days until half term without too much upset with all parties being 'reasonable'. Issy has read lots and lots today, which is great and we did a little maths together. Hettie therefore made a concerted effort to read half of her reader and did some work on her buildings main lesson.

However everyone is finally in bed at least, Hettie has been fencing so its a late night for her and Issy, well she's still reading. But hey she could still be chatting to me!
