MONDAY HOME ED GROUP WITH MAX
Some of this work has to be done regularly e.g. music practise, sport, art club, drawing practise but I’m wondering whether the rest could be done in blocks where you concentrate on certain things for a couple of weeks and do them every day. For example, research on Tudors, writing lots of stories, jazz improvisation, programming on the Raspberry Pi etc- these could all be done in a “block” of time to allow you to get really in to it rather than trying to keep everything going at once. What do you think?
I want to think of some different meals and I was hoping you might like to get involved. I would love it if you and dad would choose a day each to cook a meal and then choose what you want to cook. I will help you of course, as much as you want me to anyway!
This looked a good site for ideas but I’m open to cooking anything as long as it contains vegetables, it is likely to appeal to everyone and isn’t incredibly expensive!
Let me know what you want to cook as I’ll do an online shop tonight.
Have a look at your email. I’m trying to book places on Games Programming workshops and I wondered which ones appealed most to you. Either comment back here or email back.
Remember those Italic workbooks you thought you might like a go at? They’re on the shelves if you want a look…
I love it when art is something that is out in the streets and something that makes you feel differently about the world, and makes you look at things differently. In this case everyone and everything would look different in relation to this puppet. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live in a time of giants. Now I want to see a dragon!!!
So, I managed to find something I liked happening in the news. Many people think that the news is too biased towards negative things that are happening in the world. There is a paper called http://positivenews.org.uk/ that focuses on … well, positive news.
Can you have a look at First News and see if you can find a story that interests you. Are there any competitions in there at the moment?
