Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know: Preparing Your Child for a Lifetime of Learning (Core Knowledge UK) (Paperback)
We home educate and whilst following the children's interests largely, I wanted to have something which could form a backbone or jump off point for us. This series of books does that perfectly. Yes yes I know some reviewers slate the books because they are limited but OF COURSE if you ONLY offer your child the information contained in the book their curriculum is going to be somewhat limited however I have purchased other books which are recommended by Civitas. So My Year 4 child got to the point in the book where there was an excerpt of Alice in Wonderland. She enjoyed the excerpt so we then put a bookmark in the Fundementals book and went off and read Alice. She then completed a Unit Study on Alic that I printed off the internet. There's a whole section on Romans but it is IN BRIEF. There's nothing stopping you from going on youtube and watching a documentary on the Roman Invasion (as we did) or ordering Our Island Story (as we did) and reading in more depth. We are also planning a trip to Ribchester Roman museum. You see we are using these fantastic books as a jumping off point. They are ACE! For a home ed mum it just means the planning is done for me.
