Today is Stir Up Sunday! Stir-up Sunday is a centuries-old annual tradition where home-cooks spend the last Sunday before Advent 'stirring up' their Christmas pudding. Stir-up Sunday started back in Victorian times, and was a tradition where families would come together to get their fruit puddings stirred up, steamed and stored ahead of Christmas. Each member of the family would take a turn to give all the ingredients a good mix and help tick off the first task of the festive season. As we're studying the Victorians (& of course the Muppets Christmas Carol) we found all their traditions which are still carried on today fascinating! #homeedplanning #homeeducationadventure #homeedmum #homeeducationlife #homeeducatingfamily #learningfromhome #homeedideas #homeeducationrocks

Recently one of our members asked if we could teach science in 10 minutes. Yup! And this is one of my favourite experiments! It takes 10 mins and is chemistry! Also great to make nearer Christmas for gifts, just add in some extra herbs! - https://edu.rsc.org/primary-science/how-to-make-butter/4011889.article
