|Year 6 Books - Ready for Use|
Planning for my eldest is relatively straightforward. Usually this has meant getting the next book on from last year, though there are some changes and some additions too. Here's the plan:
Discover Bible notes.
Bible Time; We have been working through the Bible in chunks. We are part-way through the Psalms at the moment, and will continue from where we left off.
In addition, we will have family devotions led by Michael over breakfast. My eldest is also reading through the Bible on his own, 1 chapter a night (he's currently reading through Ezekiel).
(See here for more about how we teach the Bible to our children.)
Spelling Workout H
Rod & Staff Building Christian English 7, Building Securely
Writing with Skill 1
Singapore Maths 6A
The Story of the World 2 - The Middle Ages: From the Fall of Rome to the Rise of the Renaissance
(I have written about this curriculum here)
Latin Prep Book 2 (continued)
An Introduction to Classical Greek (Initially just weekly, though I plan to build in more as the year progresses)
An art project once a week (sometimes as part of our history programme).
We plan to use lessons from ArtAchieve for at least some weeks.
Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding Vol. 2 (I've written about this here.)
Exploring Nature with Children (New for this year.)
This is the formal work I have planned. In addition, there is our home education group where we are focusing on different countries (geography!), trips out to museums and other places of interest, archaeology club, swimming lessons, and a wide range of reading on many different subjects.
Of course, this is just a plan, and no doubt I will have to make some adjustments over the year. I find it helpful to know where we are at least starting from, though. Plus, new books neatly arranged ready for the new academic year make me happy!
