Sitting round the dinner table tonight we were asking the children what they learned at school.
Abigail was very pleased with her swimming lessons which started after half term. She thinks she could swim the English Channel given the opportunity. We don't disagree.
Sebastian announced he is learning about the Vikings. Marc asked him what has he learned. Sebastian proceeded to list off an amazing litany of Viking trivia. After 20 minutes of Viking facts we decided we had heard enough.
I wonder if that is just what he learned today or if that is what he has learned over several weeks. Either way it is an extraordinary achievement.
If he learned it all today, I can't believe he remembered it all.
if he learned it all over the last couple weeks, I can't believe he remembered it all.
I can't remember to take my mobile phone with me when I leave the house or pick up my children after school. And yet he can remember that the Vikings burned their ships.
How does he do that?
