#LivingArrows – Plant Pot Painting 18/52 (2020)

It’s been busy, busy, busy here at ‘HomeSchool Headquarters’. Though we tend not to start quite on the dot when it comes to a typical school day, we certainly pack plenty into our days.

Each week I put together a schedule of schoolwork and activities for the kids to complete, though I sometimes tweak the timetable, it seems to serve us well:

We start each day with a daily dose of Joe (AKA Mr Wicks) followed by Newsround, Phonics, Spellings, Handwriting, Grammar, Arithmetic and Mathematics before a well-deserved break. 

After lunch, we tend to turn to foundation-topic-based work, which is a little more enjoyable, though still very much educational. This week we spent a few hours painting plant pots which were then gifted to the children’s Grandparents.

We usually end the day with a walk and some reading prior to our evening meal. The kids then play outside and are given ‘tech time’ before they get ready for their baths and bedtime. 

I’m not quite sure how we would cope without a timetable – I can only assume that we’d be bored out of brains and each day would drag… Thankfully though, that’s not the case.

Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    We have a timetable but only tend to stick to it very loosely! Love the plant pot idea, such a lovely gift 🙂 #livingarrows
