Meanwhile, I took my 6 year old off to visit another local parkrun so that we could have a trip out too. This run begins with about a mile uphill, so she did very well! She also enjoyed wearing her parkrun "10" t-shirt (a reward for completing 10 parkruns) for the first time too.

Later in the week, we all went to the park one morning for running (or cycling for my eldest). Although it was a bit chilly when we started, by the time we were sitting down for our picnic breakfast (very popular cinnamon rolls), it was glorious.
On Thursday afternoon, we decided to repeat our red cabbage indicator experiment that we had enjoyed so much at our home education group, but to test more substances. We made lots of pretty colours - and the children are very enthusiastic about science at the moment.

My 8 year old was down to cook for our Bake Off watching this week, so he made pizza for us all to enjoy.
Finally, we finished our week with a trip to Dover Castle. This was a brilliant trip to do: plenty of space to explore, and such a lot of history to learn about in one location. We visited the medieval castle, the Roman pharos (lighthouse), a Saxon church, and tunnels used during World War II. We have English Heritage membership this year, so hopefully we will be able to go back in a few months and see the bits we didn't get to visit today.
