Our country has been in lockdown for the past 5 weeks… As of last Friday we dropped down to level 4, although there are still lots of restrictions and social distancing practices in place, schools are still closed, and a lot of people are still home. About three weeks before lockdown hit, we decided to take Phoenix & Joshua out of school, and homeschool them. Our days during lockdown doesn’t differ much to our usual home school days, except for two BIG differences. Firstly, we can’t leave our house – so no outings to the park, beach, aquarium or any other place we might go to for some time away from home. As often as possible, we try and plan our “outings” around what Phoenix is learning about. Secondly, only essential items can be ordered and delivered, like food – so we can’t purchase any educational resources and have to make use of whatever we have in the house.

12. Making a bird-feeder
