Well the last year has been fun, lots of new things to learn and new ways to learn them both for Mum and Dad and all our children…

Here is the latest picture with all six siblings:

We have continued to develop their understanding of the world around us and they have all gained a real interest in learning – they really enjoy what they do… Naomi, Rebekah and Timothea have all progressed in the core English, Maths and Science/History/Geography. We have continued to develop an Autonomous approach to learning using lots of practical tools to increase their enjoyment and making learning fun.
