William and Amy made a cake for my birthday all by themselves. Only the oven part was done by Steve. The rest was done purely by the children. All measurements and finding the ingredients and following the recipe. They even managed to dig out some candles! Fantastic effort!
Making a tutu, we cut fabric into longish strips, and tied them around a waistband then decorated with pom poms etc.
A walk in the woods (St Luke’s Chapel, Ashley Chase), whittling and bow and arrow making.

Finley has made some fat balls for the birds and is keeping a log of the birds that visit the garden each day. He has planted lots of seeds and is enjoying watching them grow. We are also putting together a time capsule to bury in the garden.
Counting in 2s
This morning (22nd) we got up at 3.30am to see the Lyrid Meteors from the Lyra constellation. So exciting – we spent an hour outside with blankets and once our eyes had accustomed, which took a while, we saw about 7 shooting stars in the first 10 minutes and some time later the brightest of fireball meteors tore through the sky. I’ve never seen anything like that. We are now hugely inspired, and have got out all our space and constellation books … I highly recommend this if you fancy it tonight and don’t mind a 3.30am alarm! The peak was this morning, but we are going to do it again at the same time and it should still be a great show.
4 weeks in, getting the hang of this home schooling/work balance!

Practicing the recorder to the daffodils.
Tilly made a hedgehog cafe after watching Maddie Moate and Greg Foot. She had a hedgehog visitor which we were all very excited about.
