Home learning weeks 10 and 11

Week 10 was technically half term but I had a cunning plan! To earn an extra half an hour on their screens, the children has to complete a history lesson from the Oak National Academy!
Week 11 was back to ‘normal’ home learning again except that I didn’t pick a project this week as I wanted to focus on work from their schools.
So here we go with the plan versus the reality:

Anya’s school actually had two days on INSET so there was no work provided.
Using the weekend’s space launch as an inspiration, the children wrote stories about going to space or a diary entry about being an astronaut. Zach did a fab picture

  1. Sounds like everyone is doing a great job! We only home-schooled for four years, but I remember enjoying learning along with the kids. Or remembering things I had long forgotten, especially history.
