Remembrance Day, Colouring Advent Calendars and More!

Thursday 9th November
We are well into the busy season now and I hardly know where to start this week. We have covered Remembrance Day, Thanksgiving, Steve Irwin Day, dipped a toe into winter, tried out some new puzzles, added to our colouring quotes ... and more!
Our Famous Person of the week is the truly awesome Boudicca - how brave was she? 
And finally, I'm very excited to let you know that I have added 5 of our lovely Colouring Advent Calendars to the site this week. How to choose? It's the Christmas Village for me this year, I think.

I thought I'd try a new type of puzzle this week - the "dropped letter challenge" puzzle. But I'm not convinced - I think they might be too tricky. Have a look and let me know what you think and whether I should do more!

Have You Seen?
Have you seen our decades colouring pages? We created a "snapshot" image for each decade of the 20th century, with plenty of interesting details for the kids to discover and discuss as they colour in the pages.

A Little Something ...
Life Is an Experience, So . . . 
by William Arthur Ward 
Think a new thought; accept a new responsibility; memorise a new poem.
Try a new recipe; plan a new adventure; entertain a new idea. 
Learn a new language; blaze a new trail; enjoy a new experience. 
Make a new friend; read a new book; see a new movie. 
Climb a new hill; scale a new mountain; launch a new career. 
Find a new purpose; fill a new need; light a new lamp. 
Exercise a new strength; grasp a new truth; practice a new awareness. 
Add a new dimension; encourage a new growth; affirm a new beginning. 
Discover a new answer; envision a new image; conceive a new system.
