Once a week on Fridays, I go to a tutor group with other home educated children where we do formal Science, English, Maths and History/Geography. We get given homework most weeks but we don’t get homework from Science or Maths on the week before half term. School holidays still apply to tutor group.
At the moment we are learning about the internal organs of the human body in Science.
In English we are learning about A Midsummer Nights Dream and the language that Shakespeare uses in the play.
In Maths we are learning about coordinates and how to plot them various ways.
Last but certainly not least in History/Geography we are learning about Japan.
All of the subjects are interesting.
The lessons are an hour long and we have Science and English before lunch and Maths and History afterwards.
KS2 and KS3 are in a class together so the works is pitched somewhere between the two. Some work is a bit harder for the younger ones in the group. Those doing GCSE levels are put in a separate class.
Another really good thing is we (the students) have an input into what we would like to learn about. So this term we as a group, chose Japan which we thought would be an interesting topic.
It’s a good time to see my friends and if you send your children or you come to the one I go to. I will introduce you to my friends then you can sit with us. (you may even already know someone there).
I would fully recommend it to everyone.
