St Ives is where the smugglers and pirates came from. There is lots of shipwrecks,mines and ships. There are pixies,scrogins and knokeys everywhere in St.Ives. They are tiny fairy beings who look after and protect the land. They are sometimes naughty.
My favourite thing in St.ives was the pasties. Pasties are delicious pastries with chunks of meat,veggies and mashed potato. In the olden days men would go down to the mines and for lunch they would get a pastie one side had a hot meal in it other a desert in it and that was what was for lunch. What a good idea.
St Ives is a really nice seaside place. Even when it was wet and cold like it was today.
For homeschooling we have to report on things we see. I saw a very interesting science experiment. It was testing pullies.
I learnt alot of science stuff. Did you know that if you have two heavy things of the same weight put one of them on one pully and the other on two pullies. Try lifting the 1 pully one, next try pulling the 2 pully one.it's hard to pull the 1 pully one because if you have two pullies the 2nd pullie is helping you lift the heavy thing. Isn't that cool?
This picture is me pulling on both pullies.. The one with a few cogs is so much easier.
I saw a bubble show at the science museum. It was teaching us about chemistry and gasses. We did gasses last year with Mum in homeschooling. We got to look at what hydrogen does and what liquid nitrogen does.
We got to hold liquid nitrogen in a bubble shape. It was cold brrrrr.
It was really cold in London so it was nice to get into a warm building.We explored the whole third floor of the science museum. It took a long time to explore as it was so big.
Mum says that when we come to London we can go to a new part of a museum every time.
Today I fed squirrels In Hyde Park. They came up and sat on my lap. It was soooo cool. The squirrels took the nuts out of our fingers. They were very gentle and cute.
It was soo cool. it was very cold in Hyde Park. There was hardly anyone there. Mum said that in Summer time, the place is packed. We came here last July with Dad and had a picnic, so I remember it was busy.
We normally stay in YHAs when we go places. They are really good and normally very unusual places like castles and big country homes. This one looked like a haunted house. It was close to St Pauls Cathedral and used to be the boys school attached to it.
I like the way the beds are formed. You don't have to do a boring journey into bed anymore because it's like stairs but giant sized and it saves on space.. pretty cool hey?
