The Mist

We woke up yesterday to the sound of foghorns.  Rushing through Maths and English we headed out for an eerie walk along the seafront.  Visibility was very low and the Isle of Wight and Southampton and the New Forest were completely invisible.

One of the things I love about children is how the simplest things spark curiosity and learning.  We managed to cover coastal defences and homophones while hanging about in the park.

Feel a bit like I am looking through the mist at life at the moment – in Percy Jackson the mist obscures mortal’s views so they interpret monsters and events differently, they try to make sense and interpret things to fit with their understanding of the world.
