Find Out More

Here is some of the work D has done for his Spansih. Today he went through the words that he learned yesterday and then completed his homework. He had to draw a picture of himself and write a sentence in Spanish next to it. He and J then had fun with a Spanish phrasebook he has.
Both the boys read through the Find Out More leaflets from the "China in Sheffield" exhibition. Both of them really enjoyed reading the stories behind the digital art pictures produced by 8 children based on the stories of the Immortals.

D's had two stories he liked, the story of Immortal Zhang Guo Lao and Immortal Woman He. J prefered the one about Immortal Han Zhong Li. The children had adapted these stories to fit in with Sheffield.

J has just reread the whole series of Alpha Force books written by Chris Ryan. He is ex SAS and includes lots of survival tips. J has spent several hours researching survival techniques and kits. He has even found out about laws relevant in this country with regard to snares and trapping. We'll have to see what we can arrange in the spring.

He wants to go backpacking in the Peak District to put what he has learned into practice. We will have to see what the spring brings. In the meantime, he is going to practice in the garden.
