Charity shop finds

We had to pop into the village on market day and managed to catch the charity shop open for the first time! Piper found this lovely book all about the different fairies there are in the world. Piper loves reading, she easily reads between 10-16 books a week. Her reading age is excellent and you can really tell how well read she is when she talks as her use of language at times is so good.
 Ruben found this fab jigsaw which ties in perfectly with our stars and planets project.
 He was very patient and really enjoyed it, he loves jigsaws. I forgot to take a photo when he finished as I was  too busy helping him. We are reading 'The Magician's Nephew' by C.S. Lewis at the moment and he is really enjoying it, he can't wait to start the next book, which is a childhood favourite for me so I'm looking forward to it too:-)
 Cordelia maanaged to buy 4 new books with her pocket money from the charity shop, so here she is making a start. She loves Enid Blyton books and was very excited to find one she didn't already have.Cordelia loves reading too, she is the same as Piper and gets through a pile of books each week, they love going to the library and she was ecstatic to find she had won the Christmas colouring in competition last week! She got a special prize and is now thinking about entering many more competitions! Think she has the winning bug!
As much as I can't wait for Spring to hurry up it has been nice to snuggle up on the sofa and read books together. We have bought a couple of new games too recently-Uno and another game called Set. We love playing board games in front of the fire and drinking hot chocolate (maybe eating a few biscuits too!)
