Rain Room at The Barbican

"Rain Room is the latest in a series of projects that specifically explore the behaviour of the viewer and viewers: pushing people outside their comfort zones, extracting their base auto-responses and playing with intuition. Observing how these unpredictable outcomes will manifest themselves, and the experimentation with this world of often barely perceptible behaviour and its simulation is our main driving force."

Sewing and making characters that kids are interested in encourages them more.  Sewing is also great for developing fine motors skills required to improve handwriting.

Tom Gates & Reading

Anya's reading has really progressed since she started reading the Tom Gates books.  We do not impose any learning on our children.  I have noticed that this approach really allows the children to become passionate about what they do rather than do things because they have to.  Anya loves reading now and reads to me every night.
