Fireworks {HSMJ}

 In my life this week…

Yesterday evening we enjoyed watching the annual fireworks in Docklands Melbourne with some friends followed by chocolate pizza!

This week I was really saddened by the death of Robin Williams and appalled at some of the dreadful things circulating the internet.

Six sleeps until we fly to Queensland! I so need a rest and am really looking forward to summer like weather.

The countdown to our trip to South Africa continues.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

In our home school this week…
  • We explored how we can't always believe what we see
  • Started with Apologia Science: Astronomy.  We learned how God created the sun, moon, stars and planets for the earth.
  • We went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Sir N was inspired to create his own unique version of Monopoly Junior based on this theme.  It was so neat watching him sit with Paul and create the board and then design all the chance cards by himself on the computer using Publisher software.
  • We are also preparing for this months Poppins Book Nook theme.  We read a number of books and listened to an audio book (You'll have to come back on Monday the 25th to see what we used).  We also watched Peter Pan.  
  • On Monday we went to The Polly Woodside and learned all about ships sailors and the high seas.  
  • This week we completed Tessellating Tile Art 
  • On Thursday at recorder class Sir N learned two new notes on his recorder.
  • We finally found a new audio book:  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
