My 1000th post!!!!

Our thematic unit for the next week or so, is Spring.  The girls have enjoyed some bird study; observing flight patterns, recording bird numbers in and around the garden, and making fact books. 

A rainbow for Spring :)

Ballet Girl helped The Boy make a bird cage


Learning about bluebells in ancient woodlands.

Sofas are primarily for dens.

Our much-anticipated trip to Warwick Castle.  What a fabulous day and how delighted the kiddies were to put their history studies into action!

The largest trebuchet in the world.  We watched it launch a rock and later on, a fireball.

Bonnie Prince Charlie's shield

The boy got a book from the library about the emergency services.  He asked me to read it again and again and then he played with all his emergency services vehicles.
