muffin pizzas

 Today for supper we made Muffin pizzas.

I cut muffins in half and fried some mushrooms. The girls chopped some pepper, halved baby tomatoes and olives and ripped up Mozzarella. 

They then spread their muffins with tomato purée and a bit of ketchup and then added their toppings. We then cooked them under the grill for about 5 minutes.

Blackberry picking

We walked along the roman road (the linton side of the All) where there are lots and lots of brambles and enjoyed the warm sun and picked blackberries where we all got stung and pricked and ate far more than we picked!

Things to do in August Review

  • Enjoy P's birthday
P had a great birthday. She had holiday gym club and then in the evening we went to 5 Guys (where it is all about the drinks machine!) and then went bowling. She got some binoculars, a watch, some lego and some colouring pencils.

  • Make sure the girls carry on with reading etc 
I really needed to hear them read aloud, but I failed!  They all read to themselves but I think P especially would have benefited from me hearing her! 
  • Go on holiday!
We had a fab time in Cornwall and our Featherdown Farm Stay was a prefect as I thought it would be!  We loved walking, the beach and coming home and watching the Olympics.

Pond dipping

Today we went to Wicken Fen - I was amazed at the amounts of Swifts(?) darting about

 We had booked to go pond dipping - which the girls loved! E caught a newt again (I wonder if it the same one!) and various nymphs! 

 And then we went bug hunting, where because it was dry we caught lots of insects and beetley things! We even saw 2 grass snakes (I was so excited because I had never seen one before!).

BFG Dream Trail

Today the smallest 2 girls and I went to London to find some the BFG Dream Trail Jars. The trail has sculptures have been placed in giant dream jars up to six feet tall to form an art trail in London and has been designed by famous people such as HRH the Duchess of Cornwall, Stephen Hawking and the Delevingne Sisters etc. We found 14 - we could have found more but I had forgotten my phone and so some where hard to track down!

 We also stopped in the Natural History Museum to look at the dinosaurs as that is P's topic next term at school.

Solar Oven

Today, following the instructions in our Whizz Pop Bang magazine we made a solar Oven. We wrapped 2 boxes in tin foil (a small one with a large one) with the smaller one having a black base. We popped out biscuits inside, wrapped the whole thing in cling film and left outside!

The girls loved their biscuits.

Lammas Land

Today, as it was super hot, we went (seemingly with the rest of Cambridge) to the paddling pool.

Then the girls had a play on the equipment.
