We have kick started our second term and all in all it's going quite well. Last week wasn't TOO painful getting back into the swing of things and so I'm hoping that this week will continue on that good way!
With Ezekiel wanting to study "who sat on the throne first," Hannah thought it would be good to focus more on the Ladies of the time. It seems that there is quite some info on the period of the Middle Ages and some very interesting women from this time so that's where the focus is for her this term.
For Zeke we will go with the same time period but mainly all about the Kings, Knights and so on going on through the ages till now.
I have some great ideas for the little one's too on craft and activities so here is a list of links that you might find helpful if you'd like to study this fascinating period of time.
