A scene from The Giants Necklace
Laura hasn't done much formal work over the summer holidays. It didn't really seem fair to make her work while her brother, James, didn't have to go to college. Having said that, Laura is always busy working only she doesn't realise it's work :) We decided today that it was time to get back into a routine (if there is such a thing when you're home edding). Laura began her morning by completing some of her maths work book (rounding decimals). She then read THE GIANT'S NECKLACE by Michael Morpurgo and drew a picture of a scene from the story on the computer using paint.

After lunch we read some of Laura's animal care course covering cells, blood, muscles, connective tissue, skeleton etc. Very interesting and a lot of it was new to me but Laura remembered most of it from science in school. I was very impressed.

An afternoon of baking followed. Laura decided to bake some cornish biscuits.

Laura spent the rest of the afternoon in the garden hypnotising the rabbits. She has such a way with them that they are so relaxed they're almost comatose when they're in her arms. (Really useful last Monday when they had to go to the vet for their vaccinations).
