Our Week Ahead ~ 11th May 2015

This is our last week of scheduled learning before we take one of our term breaks.
We don't follow the State schools terms, as we do much better with a shorter scheduled learning run that has more breaks dispersed through it.  Unless we have visitors happen into our down-tools-and-rest space we only take one weeks break at the end of a 6 week 'schooling' run.

1:  Read Aloud:
(1643-1727)  Isaac Newton ~ Tiner 
Dn is enjoying reading this book to us as it makes for a good, God honouring, easy to listen to read aloud; however, since this book is written for younger students we'll be doing more, in depth, research ourselves using various other sources :)

Along with the research, we're also going to read through some of his quotes, listed here,  and select out quotes we like for copywork.
Jay and I are going to read this online excerpt about Newton's life out of the e.book 
Newton's Principia : The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy

We'll watch through a few clips of Isaac Newton on History
