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 : )
