They also made models of gardens, after learning about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and edible ziggurats from wafer biscuits.
The core book work of the week is what takes up most of our time (and is not generally photographed!), but we always try to fit in plenty of other activities day to day too.
My 11 year old enjoyed collecting and testing hydrogen using our chemistry set this week.
The Doctor Who cookbook was in use again, and I found myself making meringue bones one day, while Michael assisted our 13 year old in making fruit kebab dalek eye stalks another.
Meanwhile, my 7 year old daughter has discovered Spirograph, and has made many patterns.
We've been out and about to local parks during the week too. The cold weather has meant that we have had the playground to ourselves at times - though it was still a lovely day to be out.
More of the same next week I imagine - plenty of work, outdoors when we can, and a fair amount of baking.
