Language Learning Strategies For Kids

Stonehenge and Stone Age Unit Study


We are so lucky to live relatively close to Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world. I took the children to Stonehenge for the first time last year when we were learning about the Stone Ages. It was such a good way to consolidate their learning. Field trips are good like that. In fact, there is a famous quote that states, 'It is better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times' and I wholeheartedly agree. You should try and let your children learn through practical experience, where possible.

June Nature Study



If you have read about our homeschool curriculum or follow my instagram account, you will know we are following a nature curriculum this year called 'Exploring Nature With Children'. It is a wonderful curriculum that covers different topics each week of the year. For each week, there are activities to do, recommended reading, poetry and a piece of art to study. The curriculum incorporates science, English, art and nature studies so it is really varied. You can check out the curriculum here.

As with most things, there are differing views but it is important to know the facts. So what exactly is baby talk and is it good or bad?

World Cup Geography + FREE Printables!




As a homeschooler I know that so much learning can occur anytime, anywhere and that includes watching football on TV. When we get these big, global events, such as the Olympics or the football World Cup, I know that they can offer amazing opportunities for my children to learn.

8 Reasons to Use Exploring Nature With Children In Your Homeschool


Nature study was not something I was familiar with as a child. After all, my parents trusted the UK education system for my education and exploring nature was most certainly not on the agenda. Therefore, I spent most of my life oblivious to the beauty that was right under my nose. I rushed past autumn seed heads, wild flowers and mini beasts without a backward glance. Now, as a homeschool mum, I am experiencing the joy of nature study for the first time alongside my children and it is all thanks to a wonderful nature curriculum. Let me tell you about it.
