Spring has sprung, the Easter holidays have started (mostly) and we are beginning to enjoy some sunshine – thank heavens! This month I wanted to focus on how we can encourage our children to learn particular subjects at home,whether we home educate of just want to back up what is learnt at school. So how […]

Spring has sprung, the daffs are blooming the birds are singing and all over the country teachers, students and parents are embarking on the roller-coaster ride of exam stress and pressure! We’ve had our share of the pressures here (and will again in a few weeks) so last year I wrote a post to offer […]
This month it would have been very easy for the whole roundup to be a long rant at Mr Gove and his proposed longer hours in school. But it has been talked about in other parts of Britmums so I’ve tried not to focus on it too much! But the words from Following the beat […]
So did we all survive the holidays? Have you finally managed to get the last of the glitter out of the carpet? How are the new years resolutions going? ok – I won’t ask! Here we are, everyone is back at school and work, and a reason level of normality is restored. But before we […]
Firstly I should apologise for not being on the ball last month! Crisis after crisis and a huge first university deadline leap up and attacked all at once! This month I have hidden away my elf knitting kit, banished the cat and my OH to the other room and am determined to work my way […]
So here it is as promised, a home education special. I will confess I don’t know much about the subject, my children have always attended formal schools and so this has been an education for me as well. For those amongst us who are novices on the subject Ross Mountneys 10 step guide seems a […]
Here we are – September already, a new term and a new start for lots of little people moving on to “Big School”. Among the parents waving their babies off this term are Bumbles of Rice, but offering some sobering advice is Mum of 3 world, who has traveled that path 3 times before. Smiling […]
Here we are in the middle of the school holidays (unless you live in Scotland – sorry!) The sun is shining – mostly and we are hopefully all enjoying it while is lasts. But I guess our minds are always looking towards the new term, uniform purchases, stocking up on stationery and the excitement of […]
Well here we are in the final stretch – the last day of term is in sight and we can hear everyone begins to breath a sigh of relief! A wonderful review of Wee Z’s first year in school is over on Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy It’s that time of year for prize giving, awards and […]
Here we are then, my first education round up and what an education it’s been for me! There are so many wonderful posts out there, how on earth I am supposed to choose only a handful? So if I haven’t included you , I’m sorry there just wasn’t enough space for them all. But please […]
Hello and welcome to the May Education Roundup. I’ve been doing these Roundups for around a year now and have loved rummaging through a wonderful array of education related posts. But sadly for me this is my last Roundup, the demands of juggling my business and parenting have finally caught up with me! Thank you […]
…plus a little cookery, grammar and financial learning thrown in for good measure! Welcome to the March Education Roundup, which features posts on an array of education related topics. I am kicking off with a fabulous and thought provoking post from The Breakfast Lady on the recent news about cookery classes being re-introduced into schools […]
I’m starting off this month’s education roundup with a rabble rousing post from Jade who blogs at Splogs. Jade is a teacher; she is also a woman from a working class background who, through the support and dedication of teachers in a system that allowed them to do their best for each individual child, went […]
And so we enter into a new year and with it thoughts of new beginnings and resolutions. For many of us our thoughts turn to exercise, shaving off those Christmas pounds and getting fit. So, I am starting off with a thought provoking post from Sonya Cisco over at The Ramblings of a Formerly […]

It’s packed full of thought-provoking posts about schools hiring proof readers, books written Scots dialect and how to stop comparing your child to their peers. And talking of thought provoking, for many of us mums with preschool and primary school children, our thoughts are currently turned […]
