Claudia – turned down a school place …. yay! She’s finished up the year’s science & history already so we’re just focussing on maths & English for a while. She’s still doing her own learning – reading, history, science, drawing (manga), play writing, geography & French. She’s getting scarily good at swimming though practising less due to other commitments. She’s in a play at Progress – What’s Wrong With Angry? – & is delighting in shocking people with the subject matter. Immersing herself in all things Tudor. Still going to Thatcham one day a week SAFMEDS for times tables.
Jasper – wowing everyone atm. Starting to swim, excelled in his TALC assessment, fighting far less with Nellie spending more time outside (trampoline). Sleep is bad atm though Reading – coming in fits & starts as is the Jasper Way. We’ve started using numicon to cement basic concepts. Basic Skills Checklist is useful as is Language for Learning, ipad apps – sentence builder & question builder. Calendar is brilliant
