One of the pets enjoyed by the children are GALS (Giant African Land Snails) currently 7-8cm across. They can reach 15cm or more.

Here one is munching a seed mix for calcium for their shells.

Cute aren’t they – well not to everyones taste but we like them…

A playdough meal…

Nannie stayed with us for the summer months (from Ecuador); she was in popular demand to read every book in the house…

Busy building shapes using the magnetic rods and balls…

Lots of views of the complicated business of making Technic models…some of these actually are very difficult.

Birthday cake…

Lots more Arthur bits arrived in the post…

They really enjoy helping me to put him together…lots of new bone names to learn.

Each part also comes with a guide magazine that is suitable for them to read…

Drawings by Naomi, Rebekah and Timothea of Abraham, Sarah and Lot…

Rebekah’s model…

Art and craft lesson in progress…

New set of oil pastels…lots of fun.

Rebekah’s watercolour painting of ‘the purple headed mountain’ from her favourite hymn.
