Hello and welcome to our blog. We are a family of 4 and have been home educating since our eldest son would have started school in 2012. Dh and I share the H.E duties between us. We're going to try blogging partly to encourage us to reflect on what we're doing and partly to share what we're up to with anybody who may be interested. As a family we are all really enjoying home ed. so if we help in any way to support others or to help spread the word then that would be wonderful.

Museums Box

We studied African slaves in North America recently. Just afterwards I was looking at the East Lothian Museums Service website and saw they have boxes of materials to lend out on various topics including slavery.

The sheer size of the box heightened anticipation...

It was great to handle raw cotton and tobacco and to have real primary source evidence of how attitudes to race have changed in the last 100 years (there was a golliwog included!).
