No more boring socks with Sockshop!

  • October 30, 2019

Just as the mornings started to turn a bit chilly here in Spain, a lovely parcel from SockShop arrived in the post! You might think that we wouldn’t need socks in Spain, and for the summer months you’d be right, but the temperature has dropped to around 12 degrees of a morning all of a sudden. This might not sound very cold to those of you in the UK, but >>

Meeting Father Christmas at Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park

This weekend was out first Christmassy event of the year – we were invited to be one of the first to visit Father Christmas at Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park.

How To Teach Kids Spanish With One Third Stories

  • April 5, 2018

Being able to speak another language is an amazing skill to have, and the younger the child the easier it is to pick up a new language. I’m not at all fluent in Spanish but did well in my GCSE and know enough to get by. We’ve visited Spain a fair bit and I’ve taught Little H the basics like numbers, colours and animals. If you want to teach kids >>

Numbugz – A Fun Way To Practice Maths

  • November 24, 2017

Little H is now in Year 2 and the work is getting noticeably harder, especially the maths. She’s quite good at maths when she puts her mind to it but it does take a bit of explaining sometimes. I very was interested to try out a new travel game from Plyt called NumBugz. As the name suggests it’s all based around numbers and I’d much prefer to play games as a >>
