While the two eldest worked on their Civil War project the two youngest had super fun with We're Going on a Bear Hunt, by Michael Rosen.
We read the book...
...and watched Michael Rosen himself telling the story (we had to watch it three times because it was brilliant).
Here's the video!
And then we made lap-books. Panda Girl didn't want it to end: "Mummy, no! I want more!" That's always a good thing :)
Here's The Boy's lovely work...
...and here is Panda Girl's
We're Going on a Bear Hunt board game
The kiddies have to play out after lunch, rain or shine. This is me attempting valiantly to make them love the rain. I mean we are English after all - what choice do we have?!
Our friends are spending a year with their kiddies travelling around the whole of the USA in an RV. They left 4 months ago and have just reached the Pacific Coast having arrived on the Atlantic Coast. We have a rough map of their ongoing trip. Love you guys!
In history today (separate from our thematic work about the Stuarts) we learnt how Richard II reached his twenty second year and demanded the Keys to the Kingdom and the Royal Seal from his Uncle, John of Gaunt, who had acted as protector while he was a minor.
We practised making our own seals. This was such a hit!
I've rearranged the two youngest's desks so they are now together. This is them after the end of our school day. I love how much use all four desks have had. I would say they were the best purchase I have made since having kiddies.
...and apple-bobbing :)
