It's inspired us to visit more castles and abbeys.
This week meal from Ministry of food.
Jemima is really enjoying the course, especially learning to cook with meat. I love her description, when making meatballs, "the egg ran through my fingers like an erupting volcano".

We've been practising times tables this week, square numbers & equivalent fractions for Imogen and two digit to two digit addition/subtraction for Jemima.
Jemima looked at word ordering and compound words.
The substantial ruins of a Cluniac monastery, with an unusually well-marked ground plan, an almost complete west range and a 15th-century gatehouse.
The kids had a great time exploring the priory, Jemima also took her wild flower book to identify flowers.
Imogen got a book from the library about medieval times, we've read the bit about monastries and castles.

“Engaging in a sea-faring life is not the easiest thing to do in a land-locked county, but if anyone is up for that challenge, it is our fun duo, Heuristics, who have a ship’s log full of interesting presentations to share, from signalling and shanties to navigation and knots,” says Jon Hogan, English Heritage’s regional events manager.
As well as the presentations, children will be encouraged to get involved with the displays, retelling the story of the great ship, the Royal Charles, and even roping in parents to help with a family relay in a challenge to capture the enemy ship!
