Study without desire spoils the memory

Howdy folks. We take a look at an excellent magazine produced by home educated teenagers. Trust me, you will enjoy reading it!
We look at Autumn and take a moment to enjoy all that this season offers.
We visit Nunnington hall and take on a barrage of annoying comments that all us HEdders get when we are out and about during term time.

A look at Montessori

No Comments

On this week’s podcast we discuss Maria Montessori and the simple, inexpensive ways in which you can begin implementing her ideas straight away. It is a lot easier than you might think, and most of it is common sense to those who spend time getting to know their children and be in tune with their development.We also discuss the mind-explosive clash of our attempt to juggle all of the good bits from all of the resources we use and how this reached a crescendo. If you’re struggling then this podcast will help you re-find your feet.
You’ll find lots of tips/ideas and resources right here so have a look through older episodes too. As always, do get in contact. We love hearing from you. 🙂

TTFN

Spring is well and truly here and there is so much to celebrate. Not only is it the beginning of the birthday season in our house but it is also May and soon to be May day. Who doesn’t love a bank holiday?

We bring mathematics into the equation and discuss how less is more when it comes to learning methods. We share a great mathematical resource from the university of Plymouth www.cimt.org.uk

Hear how things are going with our meditation course.

Finally, due to the overwhelming building work and business from home set up, we have decided to take a break from recording for a while until things settle down and we can focus. We will be back in the Autumn if not before.

Please keep posted as we will continue to share, comment and post the odd tidbit throughout spring and Summer. Thank you all for your support and for listening. Do keep in contact, we are not disappearing, just not recording.

Blessings! 😊

DIY gone Awry

No Comments

Our apologies in advance for this not particularly positive podcast. With the absence of Frogger and Toad (staying with relatives) Sarah and Paul take to the microphone to have a good old whinge about DIY, renovations and plaster.

As our shed clearing task sheds new challenges in our path, we discuss those jobs that you wish you’d never started and encourage you to get in touch with your stories.

Practical Zen, a guide to mindfulness by Julian Daizan Skinner gives us an insightful introduction to take charge of our own mental health and happiness.

Finally, look out for The Secret Sorceress, free on FRiday the 20th, only to dowload. Get your copy here:

Taste the difference

No Comments

We’re enjoying a small break from our studies this week and so to celebrate we ask Frogger and Toad to take part in the secret food test.

After being blind folded, the children are given 9 small samples of food which they have to examine and identify with the help of our lovely assistant, Paul.

Have a great rest of the week podcast listeners and we will be back soon.

Happy holidays.

Easter?

No Comments

Spring has begun, believe it or not, and as nature opens up to reveal new life and a fresh face of green, we prepare for and discuss Easter, the origins predating the Romans and how it correlates with the more common celebration from the Christian religion as Jesus Christ is remembered.

We discuss Easter eggs, the newly approved deposit scheme for recycling and the children share their weekly highlights.

Please watch and share this video exposing Cadbury’s.

Have a cracking Easter weekend everyone.

What are you worth?

No Comments

No one will pay you to home educate, so is home educating a valuable and worthy occupation? Can you truly put a price on your children’s wellbeing and education? Listen to find out!

It’s mid March in North Yorkshire and despite lamenting the loss of spring days, we keep busy with a spot of whittling with frogger and toad sharing their knife handling tips.

Frogger is introduced to the metro centre gnomes and he recalls how much he enjoyed the really long walks we took in Newcastle with Grandma and grandad.

The children share their weekly highlights.
