Sarah and the children return from a few days exploration in Northumberland and describe the magical medieval secrets of Belsay hall. Then we go on to talk about our highlights from our time spent up north and how we don’t stop our lessons when we’re away.
It’s presentation time at explorer club, we scoff cake and get beautiful certificates to show our achievements.
Our vegetable patch is well and truly under way, we plant our first seeds and discuss the scientific breakthrough of plastic eating worms.
We’re blown away on this week’s podcast as we climb the steep bank up to Captain Cook’s monument for a blustery picnic as part of our days exploration with Explorer Club. We enjoy fun activities in the heart of the North York Moors National Park and work alongside other families in learning to support the work the park volunteers do to encourage the sustainability of the land.
50 podcasts later and we’re well into our year long anniversary. We thank our regular listeners for their support and decide that Baby G needs an upgrade. We share (well some of us) our personal favorites from our adventures.
Thinking once again about living books, I read a short extract from Gerald Durrell’s, My Family and Other Animals to demonstrate how a knowledgeable author can teach and entertain, that the two do not have to be separate. (If only somebody had introduced Sarah to anemone as a written word- sigh!)
Plus, join Frogger and Toad for their Scores of The week.
This week we talk about our experience at Explorer club at The Danby Moor centre
