Home learning week 13

13 unlucky for some? Not too bad for us as we got out and about working on geography based activities from Anya’s school.
Little bit devastated that PE with Joe is scaling back from next week but so grateful for the daily workouts that Joe has provided for 13 whole weeks. We are going to start from the beginning to keep ourselves energised on his days off: we were knackered just by the warm up in the early days!
Due to dwindling motivation on the kids’ part, I have decided to drop my weekly projects. I will therefore stop writing these home learning posts and focus on getting the kids to do the work provided by school, but you can still keep up to date with us on my weekly #Project366 posts.
So here for the final time is the plan versus the reality:

  1. I am so pleased that my son’s school have been sending us work home too. It has given our day a good structure and has ensured a good continuity to his learning. I have spoken to many friends where schools have not been sending out much or any work. #GlobalBlogging

  2. Wow Laura I am impressed at your efforts. That is amazing work on your behalf! I don’t think I could manage a quarter of what you are achieving here. Your kids will really benefit from this for sure! #globalblogging

  3. Wow Laura this is so impressive! You really are putting in a great effort here. I wouldn’t be able to do a quarter of this. Well done to your kids too!! #globalblogging
