Emily had art homework, which involved going to the local community centre (Chequer Mead) to see an exhibition of art work done by the GCSE and A Level students from her school. We picked Jake up on our way and went and had lunch at Chequer Mead before going into the exhibition. What a fun lunch, I love how Emily and her friends are at an age now where they quite enjoy having more "adult" conversations with us and they bring a fun element into them as well. We were joined towards the end of lunch by Elliott and his mum, Carol. Emily, Jake and Elliott have been friends since they started school together and they still get on really well. I hope Emily will keep both of them as friends as she goes through Senior School.
As for the art exhibition, there was some impressive work on show. These children obviously have to put a lot of time and effort into their coursework. I took a few photos so you could also have a peek.
As we were leaving, a photo of Elliott, Emily, Carol and Jake. Not sure how Jake thought he wouldn't be in the photo :o)
Finally my photo of the bonus layout for Cathy's class which I said I would post today. For this we were given a colour palette to try and use. I used most of the colours - think the yellow was the only one left out.
That's all for now.
