So we’ve taken the plunge and decided to start collating all our themed work in the form of home educational resources. We thought it would be good to share some of the things we do as part of our home ed life, and part of it includes a theme we often work around. Rebel Tribe Home Educational Resources One month last year we focused on the theme of ‘boxes’ and it included some very interesting…

A few months before Christmas and George and Molly saw a video about a backpack project for homeless people and they were soon talking about ways to help the homeless people in Cardiff. Cut to 18th December and we were handing out bags for our The Kindness Project: Helping the Homeless in Cardiff, read below to find out how we got on…   The Kindness Project: Helping the Homeless in Cardiff, Christmas 2018 It all began…

In September I met a lovely teacher at the Cardiff Bay UKRO Event who  introduced me to her work with Welsh Water. Following this I booked a Welsh Water Educational Visit for a large group of home educators in December. Home Education: Welsh Water Reservoir Trip I booked the trip to the Welsh Water Reservoir in Cilfynydd within a few weeks and since 2019 went so fast, before we knew it, it was time to wrap…

*This is a collaborative post. Parents have such a massive impact on how and what their children learn. STEM is a hot topic and has been for some time now. If you’re a home educator often science, technology, engineering, and mathematics can seem like the ‘tough’ topics to guide and teach. Aside from getting your own supply chain management masters degree, here are a couple of tips to make teaching STEM a snip. To tackle…

Last week I found an old Facebook post I’d written all about our style of learning, and I shared it once again, because I feel very strongly about it. The post read…   I have no idea what kind of home educational family we are, and I am in some ways, unwilling to label it right now, if ever… What I do want to talk about is learning through joy and want, and not through…

  Although our home education is pretty free in terms of what and when we learn (although I think learning occurs all the time!) we do often have a little theme going on that George and Molly take turns choosing. I’ve decided to include these themes on the blog and share the difference resources, ideas and activities too, in case anyone finds them useful. I imagine we’ll go back to the themes over the years,…

I cannot believe it’s been a year since George and Molly started their journey into Home Education! It has absolutely flown by. I’m in Birmingham this weekend so I wanted to write a little post (whilst Warren stiches his Rocky Horror costume!) just for George and Molly. So here it is… I’ll start by saying, whatever the future holds, school or not, I couldn’t be prouder of you both. You are two amazing, special and…

Today is Sunday and it’s been fairly relaxing. We made a decision (since Warren started working mostly Mon-Fri) that Sunday would be our ‘stay close to home day’, unless something amazing was going on. So today we (me and the kiddies!) spent half the day in PJs watching movies and learning to knit! George went out with Warren to get lunch and Molly and I bumbled about around the house and then we built our…

Sorry this is late folks, I was at John Lewis last night checking out their gorgeous Christmas collection, so I didn’t have time to post this yesterday… So yesterday was a lovely crisp sunny day and we started it off by filling out invitations for our pre-Halloween party… George and Molly are both very excited about this, so I had no problems getting them to help out. Then we all got ready, popped to the…
