Then I saw the board game I bought last week- yes, another charity shop buy- It's called The Hieroglyphs Game. I saw it and just thought it would be a really fun way to learn a little ancient Egyptian. I was reading on outside the box about Latin being a brilliant way of forming secret code. The girls haven't really thought about their Latin for a while, but it got me thinking I saw this game in the shop, about how hieroglyphics are also brilliant for making codes. The game is even better than I had even imagined. If you or your children are linguists this is a game you should have in your home. (I really should get paid for saying this, but unfortunately I'm not).
Sorry about the picture quality.
Today I wanted to keep it fun and light as the children aren't 100% so I found this game it's a completely free resource. It caused great excitement as they raced around the house hunting the fact sheets. Some how I managed to loose one, I think I hid it a little too well.
We are also going to try to make rainbows into our maths lesson today, just for fun. I might try and invent one for animals, or even better dinosaurs for HB. The girls, the two big ones have got rather tired of the term 'school work'. They used to like it but not so much any more, so now we say, we don't do school work anymore, we just learn; after all I learn and I certainly don't see it as school work! They seem to be liking this and learning more at the moment so all is good.
