A lovely visit to the library in Aylsham. H loves coming here. He reads, he looks and pretty much just explores and searches for adventure and excitement hidden among the shelves. I always tell parents that it really doesn’t matter what they’re child reads as long as they read. Novels, comics, graphic novels, picture books and online fiction and media. If they read; they’ll have a thirst for knowledge. Whether it’s based in a galaxy far, far away or whether it is about the history and players of their favourite sports team, it really doesn’t matter.
Poetry for parents. A simple poem written in the frost of our car window. Five minute poetry at its best!
Lovely frost in my back garden this morning. When you’re teaching writing skills, weather really is one of the best prompts.
Number 15- Play in the snow.
An hour long flurry of snow at school led to snowballs, snow angels and wet socks and cold hands. How cool is snow!
Photo taken later, as it was all melting away. Hopefully will get some more before the year ends. Norfolk really isn’t the snow capital of the UK!
Number 5-Skim a stone.
Took Harry to the Cromer New Year Fireworks on the 8th January (Postponed due to weather originally!) and enjoyed the rolling waves on the beach. Skimming a stone is something that brings back fun memories of growing up in Wells-next-the-sea. We picked up the best skimming stones that Cromer had to offer and threw our offerings to the sea. The sea sadly was a little rough and as you skimming experts all know, a gentle, calm sea or pond is the best for this kind of technical activity. Nonetheless, Harry managed a few well skimmed efforts and had to be draggged back to shore only the once.
Exciting year ahead for Harry and I. Fifty challenges ranging from climbing a tree to riding a horse. Science, nature, sports and so much more all rolled into one.
Cannot wait to get started.
Great little piece of artwork. Always good to sketch out characters before you write.
