We are only doing a couple of hours a day and so we have decided to start off with one or two activities in August so that we can get through what we planned with our extra short day !.
Day 1 – we started off really slow we did a lesson from “language lessons for the well trained mind” (we are actually on lesson 14 since we had started last year!)
For history we read the next section of story of the world and coloured a picture of a farmer and a shaduf (from the story of the world activity book).
I read them a little of a book on Skara Brae and we made a recreation in our tuff tray of how the settlement was discovered in the 1850s.
We did a very brief start to our science which is habitats – the first page of a workbook!
The whole lot took around an hour and the rest of the day was spent relaxing and enjoying summer
