Today, we start a new syllabus with three of our four youngsters. And first thing is a field trip to B&Q. I know! Why B&Q?
It’s a maths/science project on light bulbs. We shall be data collecting. How many different types of light bulb are there? What is the longest bulb, smallest etc? What different things are used to make a light bulb? We will be there for a while! I hope the store manager doesn’t mind. That is only one bit of today’s work, but it’s the bit I am most looking forward to.
I also discovered that keeping your pyjamas on under clothes when you take your husband to the station to catch an early winter train is a winner. I was lovely and snuggly warm. I promise to dress properly for the B&Q visit. I wouldn’t want to let the “home school standard” down!
Happy 2015 folks!
