Life Lately

Nathanael, Tabitha and Abigail attended a print making workshop at Gateway where they explored different techniques.

Using a table as a printing press!

On Family Day we visited Dunham Massey, which has been transformed into the Stamford Military Hospital, to mark the centenary of World War I.

Dunham was used as a First World War auxiliary hospital from April 1917 to January 1919.

Actors took on the roles of nurses and patients to set the scene.

To follow on from our Scotland, Wales and Ireland mini unit studies, the children completed a project on England.

They made flags of St George and located English landmarks on a map.

Nathanael produced a travel brochure to advertise some facts about our country.

Tabitha has been finishing her farm project and writing some simple sentences.

I have started a Little Keepers Club with Tabitha and Abigail, where they will work towards awards and badges. I got them some aprons made with their names on, with which they are delighted.

The children had a lot of fun at the Postal Bible School Prize giving.

We were blessed to have another short break in North Wales.

The oldest Lighthouse in Wales.
It was exciting to take a trip on the funicular railway to the top of the Great Orme in Llandudno.

 We walked the town walls in Conwy

and played at the harbour.

We explored Rhuddlan Castle,

visited a waterfall,

paddled in a stream

and took a ride on a buggy around our caravan site.

Back to our normal home school schedule and looking forward to more sunshine.
