This was a true family project. George wanted to make some Angry Birds for his homework this week. There was help from Mum on the modelling, using Sugru covered bouncy balls, then some time in the workshop with Dad making the catapult.

Hello everyone, George here. This weeks homework word was ‘Pond’ so I decided to build a miniature pond in the garden. I used a stone trough that I used to grow some little plants in. First I filled it with soil then I collected moss from around the garden to make some grass. Next I […]

I wanted a pizza for lunch, but all we had was crumpets, so I asked Mum if I could make some mini pizzas out of them. The ingredients are one crumpet, some tomato puree and ketchup, cheddar cheese and parmesan and a snipped up Peperami. The tomatoeyness squidges into the holes in the crumpets. First […]
