A number of people have asked me how we structure our day (in terms of Home Education) and how I manage the two different sets of needs the children have. It's too huge a question to answer in just one post, and varies hugely with Good Days and Bad Days, but I will try and outline here our basic structure.
Mondays and Tuesdays are our main 'Table Days', as I call them. By this I mean we start the days doing structured work at the table in the dining room. We usually start around 8.30am/9am but we do not have a fixed time - once every-one is up, washed, dressed and breakfasted we meet at the table to begin 'work'.
Mondays begins with a Spelling Test - we either make our own lists, or use the ones on www.twinkl.co.uk (which are already done for you and split by Key Stage and Year Group). We use Spelling Books -
