The children had a treasure hunt to do and we looked at leaves and flowers, talking about what they feel like, what they look like, the colours and shapes etc. Maddie loves the Lamb's Ears above, she says they feel like blankets and another girl in my group said they felt like donkey ears.
Rosemoor is stunning, I miust go back in the summer holidays and spend the day there. Although we had about 4 hours there last week, we were on a schedule and had 'educational' things to do. The children would have been happy playing in the new play area called The Brash - and I did let them for a while as it was a hot day and the play area was lovely and shady.
We watched the bees on this Helianthemum for ages, I hadn't realise they had been talking about bees in class the day before so I was pleased we had spent the time observing them. One boy even noticed that the bee was storing the pollen and nectar on his legs.
I have finished some sewing - this cute little needlecase from SewHip! You can find the pattern designer here .
It was really easy, only took me about 45 minutes!
I've been trialling different designs of ipod/phone cases. Not found the perfect one yet but my quest continues!
I leave you with some chocolate meringues....enjoy!
I went to RHS Rosemoor with Maddie's class on Thursday. It was a lovely trip and the children were really well behaved, a credit to their school.
