It’s the first day of homeschooling and the kids have been following the timetable they created yesterday. It’s likely this will change as we figure things out but it’s working well so far. The schools have also provided work for them to do but Elizabeth hasn’t been given much yet as I think the teachers are struggling to keep up with the changes.
If anyone is looking for ideas here’s what we’ve got so far:
They started the day with PE.
If anyone would like to download this timetable as a template to make their own you can use this spreadsheet.

Hello. We’re homeschoolers all year round – I loved your post and useful links. My kiddies joined in the global PE lesson this morning too 🙂
Well done you for managing this long-term. The PE lesson was great and we’ll be doing it everyday.
I’m pretty impressed by anyone who manages the school run – I am in awe of how anyone gets all of their children out of the door at the same time five days a week 🙂 My kiddies missed the PE lesson over the weekend and can’t wait for it to be back on Monday.
Check out Khan Academy… have fun learning! 🙂
Thanks for the link! It looks great.
