E is in Mexico having a wonderful time with her dad so I’m having a little time off from daily learning facilitation while she learns from her new surroundings. She is back a week today and I am aching to see her. Her tomatoes were outgrowing their shared pots so I have re-potted them into…… Continue reading Growing tomatoes – Repotting
Our little seedlings are growing fast, sprouting more leaves every day and looking like they don’t want to share soil any more and be repotted individually. I’m not sure if they look a little yellow?

For maths today we used the BBC Bitesize website to recap angles. I like the Bitesize site but it seems to be forever going through an overhaul and I’m not sure it’s available outside of the UK.
