March Inspiration

This February doesn't seem to have been as grey as some and now we are in March! Very almost the end of winter.

We are always looking for more science activities to do at home. We enjoyed this video and have already done several including the lovely Skittle investigation.

Yet more science! Last year, our home education group book club took part in the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize as a judging panel. The application form for this year is now up. Any children's group which can read, discuss and vote on the shortlisted books is eligible to apply.

This year is the five hundredth anniversary of the Martin Luther pinning his theses to the door of Wittenberg church.The Trinitarian Bible Society has produced some quizzes for children and is awarding children who complete the quiz correctly with a copy of the Commemorative Reformation Bible.

This Reading Mama has a useful chart for analysing fiction. I can see myself printing this off for my book group. There is a similar non-fiction chart.

If you have children 10 or under who are interested in learning languages then this Junior Language Challenge may be for you. It starts on 10th March but sign-up is happening now. 

There is almost too much going on! Shakespeare Week is also on in March. I'm not sure that we will do Shakespeare Week, this year-I'm struggling to fit everything in! Anyway, the site has plenty of ideas for learning about Shakespeare.
