How’s that working out for the rest of you with school-age children?
The Eldest is in year 8 and fair play to her, she gets up every morning and cracks on with whatever is on her timetable, working through till lunch, often swapping advice with her mates online. She’s pretty self-sufficient.
But we’ve got two year 1s and a year 2 as well. We’re just doing mornings, with non-screen-related play after lunch. Their primary school gave them a big pack of worksheets to be getting on with but I think they’re gonna run out by the end of the week, which means actually having to find work for them to do
I understand twinkl has lifted its paywall, although just printing out endless worksheets sounds a little depressing.
Has anyone ventured into the creative world of post-worksheet learning yet…?
We watched this video together today, and it held their attention surprisingly well:
It’s pretty much entirely in the target language, which is my personal preference, and strikes a nice balance regarding topics, time between words for repetition, etc.
Twin #2 has requested a German lesson, which I could probably prepare myself if I could be arsed, but I’ll probably end up hunting around on Youtube for something similar instead.
What has/hasn’t worked for you?
