A Good Start

Standard

We have had a brilliant start to the year!  Lady P is working well!  Im trying not to make anything too tedious for her!  She has calmed down now that she has a regular routine!  The summer of no routine didn’t make her overly happy! 

This week has been warm so we spent lots of time outside!

We also did lots of work!  She is progressing through her Reading programme.  We are doing daily calendar time; maths using all sorts of manipulatives including our Spielgaben!  We do daily bible activities and some sensory stuff for the littleuns!

Yesterday cheeky girl got her immunisations and was allowed McDonalds for being brave!  She was excited to have mummy time! Then she had swimming lessons. How has your first week been so far?

The First Day of School

Standard

Yesterday was our first day of school (or no school). We had a good day and Lady P was exhausted by the end (I suspect I got over-zealous).  

I’m still incredibly happy she is home with us.  I suspect she may struggle with attention and although I don’t want to say she has ADHD (because I’m not a doctor), I do feel she is leaning to that side.  I’m teaching her and helping her as if she has ADHD and it seems to work.  It’s hard to say it out loud because everyone says it’s just her age, but I think as a parent, you know when things are not quite right.  We have started cutting out E numbers and sugar from her diet and it’s made a world of difference.  But she still struggles!  

Anyway, the first day was busy as I was working as well.  We did calendar work, reading, art, writing, spelling and maths.  We went outside and rode bikes, played at the park and had swimming lessons.
