Home ed meetings
Activities there vary according to who's attending and what they like doing. Just now it's very sports-oriented. It occured to me last week that it's a bit like being in a nice, friendly school playground at breaktime, but with the addition of parents! We run the meetings in a free-range way, so nobody is coerced to do anything they don't want to do and in fact nobody organises activities as such - they just evolve.
There are basketball and badminton nets, which are both used well. Some families have also been bringing long skipping ropes and group skipping games have been taking place. Sometimes people bring paper, pens, paints, toys, boardgames and anything else they fancy doing. As part of the group's kit we also own a huge activity parachute which is making an appearance on a weekly basis these days.
Generally it's an opportunity to relax and socialise, both for children and parents. We've never needed to impose rules and the meetings are usually peaceful. It's just a nice way to spend a couple of hours every week. I'm very glad of our weekly home ed meetings.
