Rainy day schooliness

I'm afraid we're looking like quite a schooly home ed family here on this rainy day:

Zara's been making dot-to-dot pictures for Lyddie, and the Magnetix got an airing too:

I think we're even about to make biscuits, but only because we bought some and there are never enough, once people have got the taste for them.

It's too wet to do much outside. We're going to really appreciate the sun when it finally gets here.

We also listened to this debate on education, which made some excellent points. 'Listen again' available after 3pm today.

S'funny. That doesn't look schooly to me. It just looks like here and i don't really think of us as schooly, just "doing stuff" :)

Hmm I wonder why I thought it was 'schooly'. Presence of pens and paper, probably, and something semi-structured happening with them. But there's been a lot of that around here recently.

Giggle. Darn children taking it upon themselves to be semi-structured ;)

LOL, yes! Structure can be autonomous though, if it's what the children want. School can be autonomous if it's what they want, can't it? I think Roland Meighan has said quite a lot about this.
