The Works have a big sale on at their retail stores at the moment, but a lot of the books they sell never actually make it to the shops and are sold exclusively via their website. And before you ask, this is NOT a sponsored post, I just happen to like their store.
Anyway, they had some writing skills books on the website, and while they're probably somewhat out of date as far as the National Curriculum goes, this doesn't matter a jot to us as homeschoolers. I bought a few!

Small has also been getting on well with his reading, and is way above the level a 4 year-old would be expected to have reached were he at school. Unfortunately when he saw the camera, he decided to pull silly faces!
Percy and the Pirates is a level 4 book, but he's done amazingly well and read it fluently.
I also won a little competition today for a cute polar bears and penguins lapbook unit, which we'll have great fun working through. This, and the lovely parcel of books, cheered me up no end as I had a tooth pulled on Monday and although I felt ok yesterday, today my face felt like I'd been used as a punch bag.
Until next time. x
