A little bit of magical music last night.
A few weeks ago we visited the medieval festival and enjoyed
seeing people dressed up and living like the vikings and knights would have.
Real jousting, fencing, battles, music, food.
Canons, castles, tents, arrows, birds of prey, etc.
A fun day in sunny QLD.
We have been making sourdough bread.
First we made a starter from organic rye and Spelt flour.
One week later we were ready to make our first loaf.
It took 7 loaves to get to the loaf we would consider best for us.
Light and very crusty on the outside.
Delicious with our fermented homemade butter!
Butter is so easy to make, now that I know how to do it.
Fermented ginger carrots.
This Term we have been focussing on faces and drawing what we see,
Biggles by J.
Having fun with faces, eyes and colour.
Next term we are back to painting with a new artist.
Lots of fun.
Drawing from what we see, not what our brain thinks we see.
Using grids to draw portraits is a very effective way to get a reasonable likeness.
Kingsford Smith by Jarrod.
Self portrait by Harrison.
Next lesson we learn about shading in more detail
so that we can add the final touches to our portraits.
Saturday morning was filled with learning about writing a memoir.
We attended a session with friends, and afterwards had a coffee.
Then decided it was such a perfect day for a stroll around the Noosa National Park.
Beautiful weather as always.
Our first Science Fair!
We had lots of fun and learned plenty.
Friends put so much effort into their projects.
Thanks to all!
The boys did a reef presentation and talked about coral bleaching,
climate change and the Zoox.
We had a look at decomposition.
Home made pendulums.
Colour, fat, water chemistry.
Replicas of volcanoes.
We needed an explosion of course!
Wow! what fun.
