Week 14 ~ Advent School


Not many photographs this week as the photographer has been very poorly!

We have continued with basics; both girls continuing with their daily maths, Rose is steadily working through her English From The Roots Up flash cards and Elianna is learning to sing ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’ in Latin.

We have played math wars, read lots of Christmas books & made Christmas cards. We also had fun with some Christmas science activities.



We have also enjoyed picture study using ‘The First Christmas’ As described on Amazon:

“The story of the first Christmas long ago is captured here in all its mystery by some of the world’s greatest painters. The beauty of the familiar words of the King James Version of the Bible weaves the glorious images together to create a new work of art: a Christmas story that will be treasured by readers young and old.”

My friend has kindly taken my girls to our local home ed group Christmas party today, I was too poorly to go, so I am hoping to make a full recovery over the weekend then we can crack on with gift making next week.

Some of the books we have been reading this week:

Advent Calendar Type books:

The Animals Advent

A Book Of Christmas

Advent Storybook

Other books:

A Christmas Carol

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Horrible Histories: Horrible Christmas

Lots & LOTS of Christmas stories & picture books.


The Puffin Book Of Christmas Poems


The First Christmas

Happy Weekend!
