Interview with A7


How have you felt about this year?

It has been an amazing because Mummy and Granny are teaching me.

What have you learnt about yourself this year?

I really love school and that makes me feel brilliant.

What are you most proud of this year?

My writing and reading

What are you least proud of this year?

Nothing really

What have you enjoyed the most?

Science, in particular Science Shepherd, and all my science kits.  I also enjoyed learning about dinosaurs and the rain forest.

What have you enjoyed the least?

I enjoy it all

What would you like to change?

More science, especially hands on experiments

Do you feel like you have complete autonomy over your learning?

No, I feel like you tell me what to do

Would you like more autonomy? Yes

What would that look like to you? I don’t really know, I’ll think on that one.  I’ll give you the answer when I know what the answer is!

What are you looking forward to next year?

I don’t really know what’s happening next year.  What is happening, Mummy?


  1. Hehe I love A’s answers, especially that she will get back to you about what more autonomy would look like – sensible girl, consider your options!

  2. Hi Clare. I hope you and the kids are enjoying this glorious sunshine. I find homeschool comes in to its own in the summer! Anyway I was just wondering if you could offer some advice as to what maths curriculum you would recommend. My girls 8 and 6 have done Singapore Maths no problem but it doesnt really suit us. Any suggestions gratefully recieved! I hope your husbandhas fully recovered now. Have alovely evening. Carla x

    1. Hi Carla,
      I’m not sure if you are in the UK or USA (or anywhere else in the world!) We use Conquer Maths which has worked well for all my children:
      I think it is similar to teaching textbooks in the US – short video teaching sections with a few problems then move on to a slightly more advanced teaching session and so on. It is spiral in nature and seems to suit most learning styles. My 7 year old (and all the older ones) use it completely independently, I have to help my five year old. HTH!
      Apologies for taking so long to answer 🙂
