Welcome to our world of 4 boys, Autism, Homeschooling and life in general.

Hi I'm Angie, busy Homeschooling Mum of 4 young boys aged between 4 and 11 yrs.

Bailey (11) is a huge car enthusiast, particularly classic cars, VW 'Herbie' beetles and VW Combi vans. Bailey lives with Autism (ASD) and Epilepsy but does very well coping with everyday life these days since we made the change to homeschooling back in 2010.

Dane (8) enjoys playing guitar, building Lego masterpieces and all things superhero! Dane also lives with a form of Autism (Aspergers) and a Language developmental delay (Apraxia of speech).

Ehren (5) is our gentle 'giant' and is a keen student in our Homeschool classroom. He enjoys both physical and mental pursuits and has a clear interest in currency!

Fraser (aged 4) is our little pocket rocket. He's a confident, head-strong little boy who never stops talking, singing or dancing!

Follow us on our journey as we learn about the world around us in our own unique way!

THIS MONTHS SCIENCE TOPIC - Greatest Inventions of all time

Our year of Science has started with a bang and seems to be fun enough to keep the boys amused and easy enough for me to plan! January was spent learning all about the Solar system. We covered topics such as Hubble Space Telescope, Satellites, Neil Armstrong, Landing on the moon, the 8 planets in our system, galaxies, comets, meteors, stars and The Sun.

We conducted a science experiment using oil, water and food colouring to show us the way in which centrifugal forces help create spiral galaxies. We also used varying weighted objects being thrown at varying speeds and force into sand (at the beach) to help explain how craters are formed. The boys seemed to really enjoy these activities.

This month we are covering The Greatest Inventions of all time. First topic is the Aeroplane. I'm sure the boys are gonna love this month! More things to add to their Science journals. Stay tuned!
