End of Term 1, YuuMii Home Ed
It’s incredible how quickly this term has gone by. We have only 2 days left this week to catch up and complete the last few pages of the NSW curriculum, and then head straight into the Holidays. Into the mix of all the things we already had going on, we started Drum lessons, and Ceramics. Soccer is now ramping up! Surprisingly, we were ahead just because the children were keen to do the...

YuuMii! Week 4 of Home Ed!
Wow! Well, this is moving along very quickly. I have spent time working out what we need to do to get through the Australia curriculum. It’s not much! It works out to be about a page a day in each subject, IF the children focus it takes about 2.5 hours (including breaks!). This leaves our WHOLE afternoon free for play, classes like drumming and karate, and of course swimming, skateboarding...

Today is our super social day. Starting off with some outdoor running around, on the beach, then getting through the paperwork, and onto Ceramics, and then Karate. We’ve lined up some playdates around town this week. My fear, as with most parents (so I have heard) is that the children will be too isolated, and feel alone. I am going to be sure that they do not feel this way, right from...
First day of YuuMii Home Education!
This is it. We are on our way. Approval from the NSW board of studies, and certificate in hand (so to speak) we shall now embark upon this journey. We have started the day with Physical Education, outdoor sprints with warm up. Now, the intro to our grand plan. Everyone is excited, and I am a bit nervous. Wish us luck, and if you have any tips or tricks, please share!!
We are actually doing it! The last few months (Well, really it’s been years!) we have been planning for this moment… To keep the children home, and out of the system. Technically, they are in the system, but we hope that this way they have a fighting chance at retaining their humour, creativity, curiosities and very unique sense of self. I am madly prepping for the...
