The Home Education Adventure So Far – An Update

It’s been a month since our home education adventure started and whilst it’s still very early days to be singing somewhere over the rainbow (the bright side), I can safely say it’s been a wonderful and beautiful adventure so far. My children have really grown into their self-led home education experience. So far the process has gone as follows: my wife and I teach life skills, they do some book work, but spend over 90% of their time from Mon-Fri doing a self-led chosen project with mentoring and support by myself. It’s been fun watching their imaginations just go freely wild. It’s also been a wonderful pleasure to realise how vibrant and large the network is of home educators in our local area (to our surprise).

I have little talks from time to time with my children as a reflection on how everything is going, and both of them are currently happy little bunny rabbits. Still, I plan to review it with them every 3 months to see what can be taken out, changed and improved. Afterall, it’s their education and so it will be shaped for them. Other than their self-led projects, on Tuesday’s they play outside with nature and other home educating children for the day and Thursday’s we go out for our educational trips. Training and weekend activities is as per fun usual.

Below are some photos of their work so far. This week they will write a short 500 word story inspired by nature.
