We started off this Week's Home ed with our 'Home Ed sports day'. The boys were so pleased when they saw the sun shining on Monday morning. It was supposed to be last week but we had to rearrange due to the weather. It turned out to be a lovely day and we all had a great time. The boys loved the parachutes, cricket and tug o war best!
Here in Bradford there are many opportunities to get the kiddies into sport with groups just for Home educated children and other after school groups. My children enjoy focussing on the sport they are interested in which is taekwondo and cricket at the moment.
DD13 has been learning interview techniques this week after submitting her application to be a Young Ambassador this Summer in the local library. After her interview she was given a tour of the library and where to put her belongings, where to sign in, the duties she will carry out such as filing, data input, registering people with the library, signing children up to the reading challenge and issuing the rewards, organising activites, storytelling etc as well as going through Health & Safety and confidentiality. It was great seeing her in her element and getting straight into her role.
DD2 has been busy as usual learning her numbers & letters. She also made a Goldilocks and the Three bears theatre with her pop out book this week.
Our Home Ed library meet went well again and the story and craft was again on the theme of 'Animals' which ties in nicely with this year's Summer Reading Challenge.
DS8 had a cricket match against Saltaire this week. It only started raining towards the end of the match so it wasn't too bad!!
