Week 3 - cheesy speech marks, quill pens and ink

The girls worked more on punctuation, covering commas and speech marks (using cheesy wotsits)


Revisited the water, nitrogen and carbon cycles - my fave is the lift the flap water cycle.

We rounded up our history unit on King John and the Magna Carta by making a quill pen.

It's very simple to do - remove the lower feathers,

work out how you want to hold the quill and mark off the point then cut at a 45 degree angle 

and finally remove the membrane from inside.

We also made some ink to go along with this 

using a cup full of berries (blackberries, raspberries, cranberries etc) squished through a sieve

then added salt and white vinegar to preserve it.

They kept at it all afternoon : )
