Life Lately

Time has been flying by! Back in November we celebrated Thanksgiving day. The children mapped out the journey made by the Pilgrim Fathers.


Following that they modelled turkeys out of apples and sweets and made thankful placemats for our special Thanksgiving meal.
The children sewed their own Jesse Trees to go with our December daily Bible readings, which will lead us up to Christmas Day.
Each day after we have read the Bible verses, the children make their own ornament to hang on their tree with drawings to help them remember the story.
The days are getting colder and much to the children's delight, we had some heavy hail showers last week.

Tabitha, enjoying the hail storm, was far too excited to remember to put her coat on!!!
Another bonus of the cold days are Christmas hot chocolates after winter walks!

 We have enjoyed some special family days out, our favourite being to Ordsall Hall.

"For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
 In History the children have moved back onto Ancient History after their WW1 project and are now studying the Romans. 
Our very own Roman road.

We had a lovely Christmas home education group meeting where everyone made mini gingerbread houses, lavishly decorated with sweets!
 We did a family performance of a Christmas song. 

We are planning one last week of school work and some cleaning and decluttering, before Elisabeth and Abigail's birthdays and our Christmas break.
