Home Schooling Routine

List of useful websites


It can be worrying during this strange time when we are all suddenly thrown into ‘home schooling’. It can feel like we should be teaching our children maths and English and sitting at the table completing worksheets with them. But it’s really important to remember that, while school education is important, we as parents are our children’s first and most valuable teachers. This is an opportunity for us to teach our children the things they wouldn’t normally learn in school. The things we wish we could spend time on, but we’re always too busy with the school run, homework and housework. Things like cooking, baking, getting themselves dressed, learning to tie their shoe laces. This is an ideal time to master toilet training, or learn how to ride a bike. 
Children learn so much through play and it is vital that we allow plenty of time for play- and to play with them. Teach them how to share and take turns and solve problems. 
Don’t underestimate the value of spending quality time with your children. This is the time we can share our knowledge with them without being interrupted by the daily grind. 
This time will come to end, so let’s get the most out of it and make it a positive experience for our children, and for us too.
