ds2 is starting to flag a bit but well have a break in a moment.. Actually this is giving me a good idea of how he'll cope being home educated ( thinking of doing this as the school he's at has suggested basically he leaves.. And the school we want him to go to and has been suggested for him is totally full.. We are seeing how the appeal will work out.. Etc).
I had DS1 helping me to clear the paths this morning, while we went through physics revision. As usual, I got carried away with explaining, and he had to stop me at the elementary particle level
Had to stop DS2 from going outside in bare feet. Snow is dangerous stuff for him, as he can't feel cold, and has screwed up pain perception. I'm thinking of wrapping everyone up in extra coats and scarves, and trekking down to the shops, see if they have any sledges left. DS2 is getting cabin fever, and has regressed to being non-verbal again Speech will come backonce he's adjusted to the white stuff.
Yay! he's just walked up to me and clearly asked, verbally and with signing "can I go outside and play in the snow?" Then he head-butted the baby with excitement He's calming down in his room now
Well we did terminal velocity ( not using snow balls lol).. and lots of other physic and biology stuff. For ds1
ds2 did the Norman conquest and battle strategies, ks3 maths and science.. And 6 year old units of sound ( as that's where he is at)
dd has done angles and triangles, short division and transferring data information ( a posh way of putting tallies and bar charts lol). Solids and liquids and melting temps.. And instruction writing.
And we had a bit of social / communication going on with turn taking and how to recognise the gaps and rythms of speech... And then we all did PE by sliding and skidding to the shop ( balance skills and using money..
They have all said they have done far more work here than at school.. And are worn out! ( me too.. Switching key stages all day is flipping hard work!) ah well roll on getting into the local schools so car breakdowns don't matter.
