My son did his maths homework today. The worksheet he was working on was titled ‘Fleas Jumping’; the sheet had various addition and subtraction questions, with pictures of cats and fleas jumping between them.
It’s very different to the way I was taught, but he seems to understand it. It took his mother and me a few moments to understand the sheet though!

The tomatoes have been growing reasonably well and they’ve started flowering. They haven’t got particularly tall, which is a bit of a surprise.
The kids are crouching next to the tomato plants, to give you an idea how tall they have got (the plants that is, not the kids!).
So now we’re wondering how tall the tomatoes are supposed to get. Since these photos were taken, it looks like a cat has forced its way between the two lines of tomato plants; the plants on the left (behind Johnathon) are shading the spring onions!
