I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that my heart fell into my boots when the government announced that schools in England would close for at least six weeks (but common sense tells me that it’s going to be longer than that).
Late last year, however, during our Zoom Parents’ Meeting, I put it to The Boy Child’s teacher that we come up with a plan for online learning should another schools’ closure happen.
She listened and made it happen. 🙂 The Boy Child has a homeschooling timetable and knows exactly when his teacher will, well, teach him, via Zoom. During the first week, he had one-on-one teaching and during this second week, he’s had lessons with two or three other pupils. Seeing his friends, albeit on line, has given The Boy Child a tremendous boost.
So far, so good and I’m hopeful for a much more positive experience of homeschooling this time around.
