P and I went to see What the Ladybird Heard today at the arts theatre. I was really excited about this adaptation because What the Ladybird Heard is one of P's favourite Julia Donaldson books. I had seen it before a while ago with E and it was interesting to see how they had changed it slightly. I don’t want to spoil too much about the performance as half the delight is seeing how they bring the story to life but I have to say I loved how the animals were created. P loved the live music and was very enthusiastic about joining in with the songs.

Today we went to Great St. Mary's as part of e-luminate festival of lights to create our own lanterns from laminated tissue paper. It was a really simple yet effective idea that both E and P really enjoyed!

Today we went to Anglesey Abbey which has one of the finest snowdrop collections in the country, with over 300 varieties of these beautiful white flowers.We also visited the mill and watched it turning, where P was very puzzled that water went no where near the wheat - till we looked closely at the wheels! and enjoyed the wildlife fen watching the blue tits feeding.

Today we went to an Engineering Workshop at the Department of Engineering. The idea was to take part in a Crane Construction Challenge where we had to build a crane jib from rolled paper tubes. Everyone had fun, from P who cut strips of masking tape and rolled paper, to Grace who worked hard putting the tubes together using nuts and bolts. We then had the opportunity to test our crane to destruction by seeing how much mass it could support before it broke - we came second!

Today we went for a quick walk around the Beech Woods near our house. It was quite windy but we had fun playing hide and seek and looking for signs spring is on its way - we saw catkins and few flowers peeking upwards
