Home school timetable.

As mentioned in my previous post, I have made a couple of changes to our timetable this term.

I decided that our day would be easier and probably run more smoothly if we sent Christopher to morning kindy.

I could only get the morning session on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Children are entitled to 4 kindy sessions a week so we have booked him in for a full day on Thursday. Christopher is getting some extra support work and an extra kindy session as his speech is delayed so he will also go to kindy of Friday mornings.

I have built our timetable around the kindy sessions.

Our morning program on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday is:

Prayer.
Spelling.
Reading.
Maths.
Literacy.

Recess. Pick up Christopher.

reading
times tables
catechism lessons.

Lunch

After lunch we do two different subjects each day

Monday is Science and History.
Tuesday is Geography and Cooking.
Thursday is Typing and Sewing
Friday is Art and technology.

Wednesday timetable is:

Mass.
sport.

recess

reading.
times tables.
catechism lessons.

Lunch.

After lunch, I have nothing planned so that we have a time to do things that we need to do for any subject that is behind. If we are not behind in anything (very unlikely with a baby in the house) the children will be able to choose an activity to do.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
