Its my 8th week!!!!!

Image
Today it is 8 full weeks since I was last in school. The reason for this is that I am now being home educated. So far it has been quite different and nowhere near as boring. I have learnt an awful lot more in a home ed day than in about 3 days in school and all of these things have been 10 times more exciting and interesting than school! I would highly recommend home education to anybody! Over these last few weeks I have learnt a ton of new things.

 Here are some of the things I have done; I have visited The University of Sheffield were we found out about bones that included handling REAL human bones!



I've met up with plenty of lovely kids at the HE meetings I go to that were much better behaved than those in school! I played pool, table tennis and also mincraft on the Xbox one with them!

 I've also been to connisborough castle were I made my way up to the top of the keep! I still need to write my post on this!:)



we went to a jewellery and photography  day were me and Alicia …

Sheffield University !!!

Image
Today we went to a university in Sheffield. to get there me, alicia and my nan got a train from Worksop to Sheffield, as the trams weren't working we had to walk the whole entire way to the university. We had to ask for directions about 3 times. when we got there we were waiting about for around 15 minutes for the rest of the group to come. I saw a HUGE python skeleton which I found both sad and fascinating:).


After that we went into a science room where we were spit into 2 individual groups.  My group went to the museum first were we saw LOTS of interesting things like: 


 Brains!!! ^

A hedgehog split  half skeleton and half skin!!!^

a variety of  reptiles !!!^

a crocodile and turtle skull!!!^
And its amazing that EVERTHING in the museum  is real!!!!!!(except a gorilla hand , that was just a model!)
After the museum we had lunch but then we had to wait about half an hour for the rest of the people to get back. Then, after every body had got back, our group went to the other side…

Toothless

Image
This afternoon I tried to draw toothless my favourite character in how to train your dragon, not my best drawing but not my worst. My grandad said I could do better, but I don't think I could.  
Today I did mostly maths but a bit of speed spelling and art (which is my drawing). This morning my little sister noticed a pigeon in the chicken coop so my nanny had to go and get rid of it but the cockerel keped going after it;) She also spotted a what looks like a big brown rat in the garden, I like rats, I might be getting one when my room in the attic is done ;)

I did a short workshop of photography where we experienced taking photos of other people wearing a variety of jewellery .

I had meant to do the above post on Friday, but due to the following incident it been delayed here is what happened: On Friday our youngest dog Freya was badly injured.

Owl Pellet

Image
Today we decided to take apart an owl pellet that my grandad found. Owl pellets are regurgitated and contain all the animals’ parts that they can’t digest. They normally contain bone, teeth, hair and feathers of various animals eaten by the owls. First I soaked it in water, Then I put a few drops of disinfectant in. Then I carefully pulled it apart.We found loads of feathers and a few bones. It was quite disappointing because I thought we would at least get a skull. :-( It was more interesting then I thought it would be. Here are a few of the bones that we found.We are hoping to find another pellet soon which might have more it in. :)
