We begun the week by making Asia lapbooks, and also working on some Egyptian death masks:
We have continued our history studies as usual, and also made a history timeline for what we have been learning about this year:
In addition, we have visited the Geffrye Museum, where there are rooms furnished in the style of different periods. At the moment, there were also Christmas decorations to enjoy.
Yesterday we finished the death masks - which looked slightly creepy:
Finally, I took the three boys on a trip to Parliament, where we all very much enjoyed our tour. We couldn't take pictures in most places, but here are the boys in Westminster Hall.
We finished up with a trip to Trafalgar Square and then Waterstones, where the children each choose a book as a gift from their generous great-great aunt each Christmas.
All in all, a productive week, which was also somewhat more restful than usual - very much what we all needed.
