Week 26 ~ Coal Mining


The weather has been rather mixed this week, but we have had a couple of lovely nature walks, including one with daddy. As per usual, Rose was off into the water splashing about. Spring has sprung!


Rose collected lots of lovely, fresh Ramsons, which became part of a lovely dinner that evening.


Elianna & I travelled on the train to Manchester to meet another home ed family on Monday, so Rose had fun with Granny & Grandad. Tuesday was another day away from home as we visited a local Colliery Museum.


Rose still has her interest in coal mining, so I was delighted to discover that we actually have a local mining museum!

3What an eye opener, and it really ins’t so far removed from me in both locality & in time. How very different our lives could have been, had we been born a century or two earlier. Most humbling…4


We had a smashing day with our local Home Ed group, it was a fascinating trip & we ll learned so much. How times have (thankfully) changed.



Here is Rose ‘clocking on’ for her shift 😉


10Here is Rose, listening to Fairy Tales. It looks like she is giving the thumbs up sign, but look closely, & you will see her scratching Michael the cat’s chin.12


Elianna met with two friends this week for ‘Science Club’ This week we reviewed the particulate nature of matter, atoms, molecules, elements, and compounds. We had some great discussions. The girls are all very enthusiastic & a joy to teach!






Rose got on with some nature study in the garden whilst the big girls worked on their lesson…



Elianna wrote an ‘Eclipse Myth’ based around British culture. It was a comedic take on the British love of tea & had the moon & sun meeting for afternoon tea…

Plus all the regulars; English, maths & Latin.

I have very little to report in the way of reading this week;


The Song OF Hiawatha

Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Gazzilions of the Usborne Beginners


The Children Of Odin

Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Girl

I am currently working on my plans for the 2015-2016 school year, which I love to do…I am pretty much there…just undecided on my Literature plans for Elianna…I shall keep you posted

Happy Weekend!
