Product Description

This Valentine’s Day, cultivate your love of the English language and the time-honoured art of beautiful handwriting!

We live in a society that allows us to be bombarded with ‘perfect’ images many times a day. Here is an opportunity to take a step back in time, become more attuned to the beauty of the ever-changing English language and to relish your own unique, perfectly ‘imperfect’ creativity.

Here you will learn a bit about the history of English and the surprising variety that has existed in spelling and word choice through the centuries. Further assignments will cultivate a bit of love for your own handwriting by practising longhand or block letters, or by learning the uncial alphabet and trying a bit of calligraphy! Colouring and crafts instructions for making your own Valentine’s Day cards and decorations (with suggested musical accompaniment) will allow you to cultivate a love of beautiful artistic achievements.

Poem on which the unit study is based:

Tune thy Musicke to thy hart,
Sing thy joy with thanks, and so thy sorrow :
    Though Devotion needes not Art,
Sometimes of the poore the rich may borrow.

    Strive not yet for curious wayes :
Concord pleaseth more, the lesse 'tis strained ;
    Zeale affects not outward prayse,
Only strives to show a love unfeigned.

    Love can wondrous things affect,
Sweetest Sacrifice, all wrath appeasing ;                      
    Love the Highest doth respect ;
Love alone to Him is ever pleasing.

By Thomas Campion (1567- 1620)

Please Note: Due to the formatting required for Teachers pay Teachers, the two versions are in one file, therefore the page numbers for the second file will not apply.
