HEdNI Singers to Join Peace Proms

Peace Proms 2017 - massed choir

We're delighted to be a part of the Peace Proms. We will be learning the songs at home and as part of our regular 'big sing' events with the lovely Kirsty who has arranged our participation. Our group will attend a workshop early next year and finally participate in the Peace Proms in 2018 as part of a choir of 3000 singers and a full orchestra.

Visit to Ulster Flying Club - by Myles Taylor

Visit to Ulster Flying Club- children with plane

On 11th May 2017 we visited the Ulster Flying Club in Newtownards. 

First Rodney showed us the Fire and Rescue pickup truck. The size of an airport dictates the size of the rescue squad. We saw the fire equipment. It was very interesting to see the aerator on the end of the hose’s nozzle which makes the white foam. 

Calling Fermanagh home educators...

A new meet up is being planned local to you, if you're interested then get in touch.

Meeting up with local home educating families is a great source of support, inspiration and fun!

New 'Travelling Resources' Scheme

Historical Newspapers
History with the Hound

A new scheme for home educators in Northern Ireland to share resources, these resources will travel around between families to support community and give us all access to interesting things...  It will be organised through the HEdNI Facebook Group.

Our first Travelling Resource will be the Schools Pack from Historic Newspapers

"Our free teaching packs are available in order to help students discover the cause and consequence of historical events. Hard copies are currently available to schools, universities, libraries and accredited education establishments only.

A newspaper is ideal for a history lesson. Each page is filled with stories from eyewitnesses, social history detail and topics for discussion. A newspaper is an enjoyable way to help learning and engage a pupil’s curiosity and imagination. Papers allow us to relate past events to the present day and be the starting point for debate on history and its significance today.

Sign up for Shakespeare Week Resources

Shakespeare Week

Many families and groups will be using the resources from http://shakespeareweek.org.uk/ in March this year... and exploring Shakespeare in families and at the various groups.  The resources and 'passports to Shakespeare" are available to Home Educators if you register before February.

"Shakespeare Week is a national annual celebration giving primary school children a great first encounter with Shakespeare. Join the thousands of schools, families and organisations working together to inspire a whole generation of children through Shakespeare’s stories, language and heritage. "
