Autumns first day of at home learning involved plenty of activities. Arts and crafts are a favourite, including painting with forks, spoons and fingers - making a collage from kids national geographic and creating edible slime with Dad and Floyd. Handwriting was also accomplished today with Autumn writing a story about our cat John the Fisherman. She is such a gorgeous creature, involving her younger brother in learning as well,

Grape picking, heating and bottling

Today I picked loads of grapes with mum - we used a special tool to cut them down rather then hand picking like we have in the past.
Then I had the slightly boring but satisfying job of plucking the grapes from the stems. My mum and little sister helped.
We then heated the grapes in a pot and poured hot syrup over them while packing them into canning jars.
I got to see the process of picking, preserving and bottling at first hand.
I learnt that, in order for the seal to 'seal' properly, the canning jars needed a hot water bath!

Today Farrah experimented with using different baking methods to produce a different product. We decided to try scones, in which she learnt how to rub butter into flour, practise her egg cracking and whisking, shaping, not over mixing and grating cheese.

I again just have been doing paint by numbers but that's because I struggle with getting straight into work without having long enough but I did a bit of maths, I have been late two mornings where I came right near the end of my SDL block but I'll be starting to work on more now as we are getting somewhere in all my UE subjects. My posts will be about that but our paint by numbers is almost finished and ready to be up in the media room!!!
