First of all me and Emma made a video to 'the Saturdays what about us' for Friday download, a CBBC show. We were briefly shown on TV!!!!

Just remembered something........ in the last couple of weeks we went to croome park. The first time I drew a picture of the house, the field in front, the trees, the pond and using artistic license I moved the Malvern hills over a bit! The second time we used view finders, (lovingly made by mummy) to find sections of the orangery we liked. I did three, one with patterns and the two others quick sketches of the building itself. Afterwards I also added shadows! For fun while Emma was playing I drew the church, using artistic license to make it more colourful!!



Today we went to a village near Pershore called Pensham. Unfortunately, well kind of, it wasn't opening til tomorrow, Saturday, but it was better because they were setting up, so we got to chat to them. It was in a telephone box! Lots of people had given these people art on a post card, and they were hanging them up in the windows. They showed us some. My favourites were the mosaics, a picture of a water fall, and a bright and bold picture of some fruit. We will back tomorrow and pick our favourite to by!  I liked the painting of the waterfall by an artist called Jane Hordern. We bought it for £5. It is called "Cascade". The painting has inspired us to do some watercolour painting too.


Me and Emma have started a choir, but don't imagine boring hymns or whatever. We actually do old and new pop songs. For example we have recently finished walking on sunshine by Katrina and the waves. We were doing the middle part, but next time we can choose whether we do the high or low. I am mostly looking forward to doing Emelie Sande wonder and Christina Agliera Candy man. I go with my friend Allana. We are going to do a christmas concert at a fayre in December!


Since the end of April I have been doing a drama group at the playbox theatre, Warwick. It is a home ed group and I have really enjoyed it. We did these things:

  • Battles - We were either being defated, where we had to look scared, or we were attacking, where we had to act violent. We used music to create a sort of dance. That was the only sound. It was slow motion, which created a dramatic effect.
  • We used our bodys to describe colours. For example for red I put an angry facial expression, and for blue I looked like I was mourning something.
  • We did arguments. When we were doing it in pairs I was a bit nervous, but when in a group I really acted angry and they even listened to my idea! Stacey, the instructor was really impressed.
  • Most of all I enjoyed the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. I loved being the main characters, even though we didn't use words. I even enjoyed being turrets and wardrobes!
We also did some other things. I really enjoyed doing it, and I learnt you don't need to talk when acting for a story to be told.

Me, mummy and Emma, after mummy had been to a dentist in Birmingham, caught the bus to the gallery. It was very fun. I enjoyed looking at the landscapes rather then the potrairs. The people in the portraits always look sad. I want art to make me happy. I also liked the foreign pictures like an Egyptian garden. I didn't like the modern art. It is to creepy and abstract. When I get older I might like it, but at the moment I like the more historical things. Some modern art sculptures; especially of people I don't like, but some more like the stuff that would be in a house I quite like. Here are my favourite things I saw:

For a birthday treat me, mummy and daddy went to Manchester on the train. Because we had time to spare we went to Manchester art gallery. We only had a quick wander through, but I still noticed some nice pictures and sculptures.

The main part of the day was the BBC tour. We started of in the BBC breakfeast. It was a surprise to realise the 'window' isn't actually a window, instead a pre-recorded view of MediaCity. There was an interactive room where you can be on fake BBC breakfeast or question of sport. Mummy was on BBC breakfeast, and daddy was on question of sport. Mummy had to read from a screen on a camera that showed her what she had to say. We also went to the radio 6 studio. They had a left and right control pad for people that were left handed and right handed. My favourite part was the blue peter/ DNN (CBBC show) studio. I recognised the props from TV. If you looked up you could see the hundreds of cameras and lights. It looked cool.

The day on a whole was perfect!!
