Education Round-up: Allocated places & nature

March has arrived and with it the buzz of allocated secondary school places. We are making the move from home education to secondary school in September, and are very excited. Although we are aware that many families will have been disappointed with the decisions made, so our first stop this month is…

The Appeal Process

This month, Helen from Casa Costello shares with us their experiences of appealing the secondary school allocation. It is a brilliant insightful read about what to expect at a school appeal and hopefully will put many parents at ease. 

Making Education Fun

Terri, from The Strawberry Fountain, has been testing out some brilliant looking educational quizzes to help kids make the transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 in a fun way. Terri says “education should be fun and that children should learn without realising that they are being taught”. I couldn’t agree more! 

Once the weather has perked up a bit, Jemma, from Thimble and Twig has put together a whopping 24 things to do with nature on a woodland walk post. From plate decoration to building fairy houses – this is a great post for home educating families and nature lovers alike. 

You’ve Been Loving

Sarah, from Let Them Be Small is a home educator and has been testing out Letterbox Lab with her little ones. The latest box looks like a lot of fun!

That’s it for this round- up, if you have something for the next round-up feel free to email me at [email protected] or tweet me @mojoblogs
