Although held in a classroom setting it certainly could be adapted and made very unique to home schoolers. We love the museum idea and it makes for a great way to strike up more in-depth conversations and exploration of fractions.
The Vicious Vikings belt out a soft rock classic from the brand new series.
The Largs Viking Festival is a yearly event held in the town of Largs on the west coast of Scotland. It is a week long event and celebrates Viking heritage, with live music, arts and crafts and historical re-enactments. The event culminates with the re-enactment of the 1263 Battle of Largs followed by the burning of a longship and ending with a spectacular fireworks display at the Pencil Monument.

This Weeks Poetry Piece I completed with my mum and brother is all about a dog that went into space.
I drew a picture of it and here is the poem as well.
The barking in space
has died away now,
though dogbones rattle.
And the mars of teeth
on the sputnick’s hull
are proof of battle
impossible to win.
were no help at all.
Did the dog see,
Through the window,
earth’s blue ball?
Did the dog know
that no other dog
had made that circle
around the earth-
her historic spin
For the love of Vikings…we are besotted!!! Thanks Antjie a fellow home edder for submitting this fab piece of footage. Making it part of our home ed today!!!
Mindfulness- Dante has a habit that is common in all of us: his mind shifts backwards to the past and forwards to the future, so he misses out on things that are going on in the present. Mindfulness, an ancient Buddhist practice, can help Dante and all of us focus on the present and think about our problems without reacting. It involves becoming a nonjudgmental, outside observer of your own thoughts.
