We are feeling increasingly excited about Christmas. We spent today engaged in a variety of Christmas themed activities all of which Tristan undertook dressed as an elf.
For the morning reading session we took it in turns to read from 'The First World War' by Usbourne books. Theo is desperately interested in the war and was fascinated by the section about trench warfare. Tristan listened and asked several questions which Theo answered for him. We discussed at length the 1914 Christmas football game which made him really question the politics of war.
He went off to the table and drew various diagrams of the trenches. He also drew two pictures which although juvenile in execution highlight the futility of the war incredibly well.
