Is it really that long since I posted? Yikes. Time flies when you’re having fun.
So what have boys been up to?
We’ve visited several local art exhibitions, including my favourite, a textile art exhibition at Blickling Hall. No photos of the exhibition but here’s the boys enjoying the grounds:
We've done some more expressionist style paintings. These are expressing an "angry" feeling using unusual colour combos:
We've been on a visit to the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. The boys are lucky enough to have a grandfather who worked as an aircraft engineer at Duxford in the early sixties, so he was able to give them lots of insider knowledge on the planes.
Another highlight of the last few weeks has been the first session of Forest School (there are five more 2-hour sessions to go). Here the boys will be learning about such exciting things as using tools, making a campfire, identifying plants in the wood etc. The first session was promising, hopefully I will be able to post some pics in an ensuing entry.
