Our under the sea home school study

I thought that I would share with you how we got on in our home school when we were working on our under the sea topic.   Notebook work We did lots of notebook work using templates which I made to help make the learning a bit more interesting. This worked really well and we both learned so much about different types of sea life in our oceans. If you would like to download the template we used then it is[Read more]

The benefits of being Active There are so many benefits[Read more]

V is for Valuing

Two fingers together with drawn on faces to look like two people sharing one heart

Often we do not even realise what our values are. They lie below the surface guiding us in[Read more]

On July 7th I threw Chloe a baby shower. I had very little time to prep and plan and I was on a low budget, but I think that it went well. I planned for an afternoon shower, 2pm – 6pm. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves which was the main thing. It was especially difficult for me as I had never even been to a baby shower before let alone host one! This is where Pinterest is so handy!  The[Read more]

Ipswich comic-con

Ipswich Comic-con On Sunday 30th June we attended our first ever comic-con and it was conveniently located  in our home town. Over the last year, Faith has really gotten into anime and cos play so when she asked to go to comic-con I was not surprised. We purchased our tickets in advance as that allowed entry an hour before the doors opened to the pay on the gate crowds. We had no idea what to expect or how busy it[Read more]
