"Everything's a learning opportunity" ....
Anyway, here's some of the learning that's been going on here in the past day or two:
Watching the path that water takes - always the one of least resistance.
"The water isn't strong enough to move the cup - it can't go down the plughole."
First bank statement: what do all the columns and numbers mean? Remembering that she did draw £20 out last week, as it says there.
Feeling ill, so can't go and play at friends' house. Got to lay on the sofa instead, wondering what's happening inside, and why.
"Why doesn't our kitchen clock have proper numbers on it? What do you mean, 'Roman numerals?' "
"OK, yes I get that now. But what do you mean by 'Roman'? Who were they, and why are their numbers on our clock?"
All this took place spontaneously, in and amongst lots of other things happening. I love the fact that she asks so many questions. The older ones stopped doing that after a few months of school.
