Christmas concert from the students of Redmaids' High School
The talented students of Redmaids' High have recorded a Christmas concert for our residents. Watch it on YouTube here - it's absolutely stunning!
Two word games we've enjoyed in our family are:
1. Completing a limerick someone has set a 1st line for. Setter gives them about 4 days then judges winner, who can then choose next 1st line. etc.
If you want a 1st line l suggest..
"On a farm lived a sheep & a pig.."
(we got some nice ones on that)
2. A to Z game. Make as credible a sentence as you can using words beginning with ABC in order. (Can use small link words eg. the, and, a, for..)
