Diary for Year 12
This diary explains how I personally used the materials on the flash drive with a child aged 11.
Tour of the Bible Part 2: The New Testament (24 A4 pages with audio files of hymn tunes)
Continued from Mothers' Companion Volume 8.
Ten Minutes a Day 5 (90+ A4 pages)
Daily grammar and punctuation "warm-up" exercises.
English Exercises (7 A4 pages)
Based on extracts with a consciously moral purpose or Christian objective. This is not because all the comprehension and composition you do should be based on such material. It is just that exercises of this type can be hard to find. The exercises selected here will be a good supplement to your own reading as well as to the other English exercises in this volume.
English Through Hymns (7 chapters)
An in-depth study guide designed to provide some supplementary English language and literature work for children aged 12 - 16 using the words of familiar (and some less familiar) hymns as material for study.
Exercises on Hymns
A selection of five hymns (score and audio) with music theory exercises.
History of Ireland
Supplements The Story of God's Dealings with our Nation on earlier volumes of the Mothers' Companion flashdrive.
Latin Without Tears Part 5
The final instalment of this useful classic by the author of the Peep of Day books
Music Course Part 6
Continues the music course with a unit on the Twentieth Century composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, some short informative articles from The Young Musician magazine 1935 and two units which explore how philosophy and music interacted in the Renaissance era and in the Baroque era.
The Children's Shakespeare Part 2
Anthony and Cleopatra, Coriolanus, A Midsummer Nights Dream, Henry IV Part 1, Henry IV Part 2, Henry VIII, King John, King Lear, Othello, Richard II, Richard III, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, and A Winter's Tale. You will probably not want to study all these plays but having them all gives you a choice.
Follows on from some of the philosophical lessons in the music course.
Maths for this year will be found on earlier volumes of the Mothers' Companion flashdrive.
