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.

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.
