Ancient Greece

We have been covering the Ancient Greeks in SOTW1 and I suggested to Millie that she could do a mini project on them before we move on.

I’ve put a bunch of links on my Tumblr for her to have a gander at but figured I may as well share them here as they might be of use to others.

Pick your Posture

Today started off with an impromptu yoga session brought about by these cards that i made last night….

Emily has been joining in with my yoga sessions over the past week and really enjoying them. I remembered these photos Meg posted about a while back and set to work!

I’ve been thinking for a while now that it was about time we tackled grammar with Emily so I’ve been busy putting together the Montessori farm kit. I had a free kit from here but ended up purchasing one from Montessori For Everyone too. I plan to start this next week with her.

Isaac has been a little monkey today, really mischievous, mainly i think because he’s tired. He had a busy day at nursery yesterday and no nap on the way home. I had thought that he would be a breeze to put to bed but i think by the time we got there he was over-tired and it was gone 8 when he finally succumbed!

We began Story of the World again today, after a month and a half break! Emily was pleased to find she was able to tie in the Kingfisher books she got from Auntie Sarah for her birthday. We’re back on to Egyptians again (Middle Kingdom)

Winter Festivals

We are having fun following Bella Dia‘s Christmas Book and Activity Advent. There are loads of people sharing great Christmas/Festival ideas around blogland at the moment. I’ve been keeping a note in my google reader “shared items” of some and eventually hope to fill a notebook so that come next year i will have everything at my fingertips and will be etreeeemly organised….yeah right.

We’ve also started the Christmas baking…

..by making mincemeat…

…and mince pies…but mysteriously there don’t seem to be any left photos of them.
