Our Island Story

We are reading "Our Island Story" after lunch each day.  We were learning about the Romans today.  In the afternoon, we found a part of the old Roman wall that used to be around London.  You can find "Our Island Story" for free here.  It is good for children 9-12.  

Wir lesen immer ein Kapitel aus dem britischen Buch "Our Island Story".  Dieses Buch ist für Kinder von 9-12.  Man bekommt einen Überblick über die britische Geschichte.  Man kann es hier kostenlos finden, doch gibt es keine deutsche Übersetzung.  Wir lesen im Moment die Kapitel über die Römer, die hier gelebt haben, und haben uns zu diesem Zweck einen Teil der alten römischen Stadtmauer angeschaut.

  1. You certainly manage to pack in quite a bit of activity each day, I think I would be exhausted trying to keep up with you all 😁

    1. Well, we do not have outings every day. That would tire me out and would cause cranky children. But it is good to get out of the house each day, even if it is just for a short walk.

  2. Oh! How funny!!! Chanda and I were just talking about the wall yesterday!!! Did you go by Tower Hill where the statue of Emperor Trajan is? That's one place we thought we would like to go :)

    Eva, when they are older you will look back on these days with such warmth :)

    Enjoy London!! xoxo, Dorina

    1. Yes, we did see the statue! I took a picture, but have not had time to upload it. In case Chanda comes back, we know better places to visit and meet with people now. And also better times! We are trying to avoid the rush hour times when going places because public transportation becomes a nightmare then and it can take easily up to 90 minutes or more back to where we live.

      I am sure I will. This is probably our last trip with all children together. Time goes so fast.
