How have you felt about this year?
It has been fun, relaxing, stress free, easy but exhausting; I would say, for me, pretty much one of the best years of school so far
What have you learnt about yourself this year?
If I can put my mind to drawing I can produce some pretty good results
That I want to be homeschooled forever 🙂
I really enjoy creating over book learning
The choices I’ve made this year have opened doors to my future, which is hugely exciting
I really enjoy spending time with you, Mummy 🙂
What are you most proud of this year?
My mixed media painting results
My paper beads
Having worked on my patience I feel I am slowly becoming more so 😉
I love the fact B5 also wants to become an artist, and I am looking forward to teaching her and working along side her in the future
I’m proud that I am now not only caught up in maths but am working a year above my age level. I am excited to begin my maths GCSE work in September
Receiving a gold trophy in my trampolining
What are you least proud of this year?
My ‘Drawing with Realism’ work because I could have applied myself better and so my work wasn’t at the standard it could have been
Because I am creating most of the time, I am spending less time exercising and moving my body, which I have always enjoyed.
What have you enjoyed the most?
Jewellery making; enjoying a really close relationship with Mummy; finding out how similar I am to Mummy; my relationship with B14 blossoming; all my art, especially the mixed media; all the DIY’s I’ve done. I am really enjoying all the hugs I get off Thomas. And of course my relationship with my twin.
What have you enjoyed the least?
Drawing with Realism lessons
What would you like to change?
I would like to have more exercise
Do you feel like you have complete autonomy over your learning?
No, but I enjoy the collaboration between you and me. I love that we figure out a schedule together, but I get thoroughly annoyed if it’s changed for any reason!
Would you like more autonomy? No
What are you looking forward to next year?
Maths; learning Byzantine links for my jewellery making; paper clay jewellery – which means we need to get a kiln (hint, hint, huge grin on face….); reading more jewellery books; discovering more ways to make beads; watching Anne of Green Gables and exploring mixed media in greater depth.
