Small spent most of Tuesday expanding his understanding of RPGs. Every now and then he needed to regroup and spent some time back with CBeebies, mainly on tikkabilla 🙂 He got lots out of fusion fall, and then eventually, I dragged him out of the house for his swimming lesson.
That meant that we walked to the beach front and then along to the swimming pool/ leisure centre, then he swam for half an hour (well bounced around in the pool and splashed ppl) then we walked home together too. Plenty of exercise in swimming lessons 🙂
While he swam I talked about home education with Big’s friend C’s mother. (C is in the same swimming lesson as Small.) Then we covered Festival of History and I offered childcare if required during the school holidays.
Once home Tim popped out for a drink with his brother and then eventually came back with chinese food for us all to share. Small really enjoyed staying up for a special meal with us, I think, and particularly enjoyed Uncle D taking him to bed. Was nice to have a guest for a meal, and the chinese food was much better than the local indian takeaways have been.
Oh, and I finished up my TMA and put it in the post. Well, when I say finished I mean I did enough of it, I hope, to get me a decent passing score. Couldn’t face fighting with mathcad. Oh, and I had a long chat with another home educator over the phone about a possible mainstream media article about the dubious stats behind the Badman review. Knew that there was something else to the day!
