We began at a bird reserve, where we caught sight of various birds that we don't usually see, including a spoohbill that a member of staff showed to us through a telescope.

Yesterday we headed off to visit Housesteads Roman Fort and Hadrian's Wall. I'm sure the children took in some history as we wandered round, but most of all they decided that it was a great place for exploring and playing hide-and-seek. Plus, I came home with a Latin crossword book from the gift shop - so we were all happy.

Amidst all this, we have managed some quiet mornings and evenings, involving reading and resting and some running. I hope that we will go back sufficiently energised to face our final half term and finish our academic year well.
