Homeschooling on the move (sort of)

We are about a third through Term 3. We had to put on hold the plans to travel around Australia because Drama King is rehearsing hard for ‘Oliver!’. Nevertheless, we do not have a fixed abode and so we have been moving from place to place, not staying more than two weeks anywhere.

We had a lovely time on a farm in the Myall Lakes area, feeding goats, alpacas, cattle and horses, bouncing on a trampoline and reading loads of books.14856736894_c4e9bfcfb0_z       Feeding alpacas.14859108212_ca07ee9eb2_z14836456616_72edd8bffa_z

We went back to Sydney for what seemed a very fleeting time, before spending about a week at The Entrance where we watched pelican feeding and walked around the town and lake, reading about its history.

We are now in Narrabeen and I am trying to return to a fairly normal routine, although it’s hard without our normal resources. The boys haven’t really got their teeth into any projects this term, although Princess is enjoying pretending to bake cookies wherever we go.

We are doing a minimal amount of English and Maths work and spending a fair amount of time at the beach.

I have plenty of ideas about changes to our homeschooling but I don’t want to make too many of them at the moment. However, spending more time outside was one of them and I think we are achieving that without even really trying!
