Day 16 & 17 (The end of school at home)

Day 16; I was down to one student attending ‘school at home’. Wednesday is always a difficult day with all the core subjects popping up. Tension is usually high. This was no exception. However, this time it was much easier to manage. Keeping up a constant stream of food seems to help Mr 13 concentrateContinue reading “Day 16 & 17 (The end of school at home)”

Day 14 & 15 School at home

Things are a changing… Dad has been on school duty the last two days. Monday, it was the usual juggle trying to help both kids through their lessons and provide a continual supply of food. On the whole though, it was a successful day of school at home. But, something else big happened. Miss 10Continue reading “Day 14 & 15 School at home”

Day 12 & 13 School at home

And so ends another week of school at home. Two and a half weeks feels like two and a half months!

Day 9 & 10 School at home

Instead, they are enjoying rather lazy starts to the day, falling out of bed, getting trackies and Ugg boots on just in time to start their school day online. Meanwhile, I haveContinue reading “Day 9 & 10 School at home”

Day 5 Home schooling

3rd April 2020 (Game changer) Today was a bit of a messy day with both Mr and Mrs Prof Bee scheduled to work. We had the care sorted with neighbours and friends but there was no one actually available to ‘teach’. That is, apart from their wonderful and capable teachers on the other ends ofContinue reading “Day 5 Home schooling”

Day 2 Home schooling

31st March 2020 So today I cheated and went to work. It felt really good after three days at home to get back into the ‘real’ world. Except of course, it wasn’t the world we know….. it was Corona world. I spent the entire day at work cancelling clients, explaining that due to the riskContinue reading “Day 2 Home schooling”
