Meanwhile, several household substances were gathered
Once the cabbage water had been drained and cooled, it was distributed between 10 glass containers (I knew all those jars I was hoarding would come in handy one day!)
Then A added a different substance to each jar - recording how much was added and any differences occuring to the cabbage water.
And here are the results - A has estimated the pH of each substance based on how blue or red the cabbage water turned.
- another crime scene investigation project, this time looking at DNA evidence
- writing a short story in 20 minutes
- online maths assessment on multiplication (she got 10 out of 10 - yay!!)
- 'geograball' - a game A made up with her Granny which involves throwing a ball at each other and naming countries/cities beginning with A/B/C etc
- piano practice
- smoothie making session
We ended the day with pizza-making, and both felt very satisfied with our day. Its great to see A so motivated, she seems to be entering a new phase (or something) where she's taking much more responsibility for her own learning.
The art session with the HE group went really well, I think A was quite inspired by the artist taking the session, and had a good look at her website when we got home.
A had her first night at Guides on Thursday. She was extremely nervous about it, worrying that she wouldn't know anyone, but as it turned out she already knew a couple of the girls, and was put into their patrol, so she came home with a big smile, keen to go back next week.
So all good then. I'm off to the pub tonight - haven't done that for ages. I think I'm in a lager mood tonight...
