I had been planning to do lots of essay writing at the weekend, but things didn’t quite go to plan. I ended up spending Saturday morning in hospital with abdominal pain and was told to take it easy for a few days, so this week has mostly been quiet days at home. We did enjoy a lovely relaxing trip out to Rosemoor Gardens with my mum and a Christian home-ed group. Eating our picnic lunch in the dappled sunshine of the woodland area was wonderful!
There was great excitement today when a long-awaited preorder of Montessori materials arrived. I was planning to leave the box unopened until I have time to sort out the shelving upstairs in our learning space, but couldn’t resist having a peek! I didn’t present any of the materials to the children, but they got stuck right in anyway.
Tabitha seized the knobbed cylinders as soon as she saw them and completed each block one after another.
She has also been working on several blocks at a time, which was much more challenging. She got frustrated the first time, but has been doing it over and over again all evening.
This weekend will be a mad rush to write my final essay, then I’ve just got a presentation left to do. I will still have work-based learning and an Ofsted inspection to deal with, but the worst of it is nearly over.
