Happenings about the place

We have been busy watching the school TV hour from 10am to 11am every week day for term one (working in with mainland Term times!) on ABC. They have some great shows for primary school children, and also some for high school, and both my 8 and 3 year old watch it and enjoy it.

JAHG has also started back at guides for the year, so she is busy working out what badges she wants to complete that can be done at home. She loves the idea that the work will also be classed as school work for her, which gives her more incentive to work on a lot of badges. She is also busy doing oil pastel paintings, art and craft and more.

NIK is enjoying tracing letters to spell her name and doing dot to dots and mazes. Her hand eye coordination has come along really strongly recently, which is great. She loves to draw, paint and write, even though her letters mainly resemble little squiggles and likes and circles for the most part!

ME – I am now looking into gymbaroo or dance lessons for NIK and swimming lessons for JAHG and looking forward to getting involved in the local Home education group, now that they have started meeting up again this year.
