Term started 9 am sharp this morning. The children had already been up breakfasted, done the dishwasher and played.
I had new folders and workbooks all laid out neatly and thought I’d done well. Avila pointed out the lack of music set up so I did that and Heleyna sat down to her lesson asking bemusedly where the keyboard was!
Ahem. Keyboard duly installed. It is much easier to learn to play one when you actually have one in front of you apparently.
The new folders went down well and I had hoped we would finish everything by half-two today. We finished at twenty-five past two!
They tidied up pretty quickly and I finished off.
So, first day fully survived. Whether the rest of the week will go as smoothly remains to be seen
I’m returning to a more literature based approach for now. I’ll see how that works out.
