So this week we began the home schooling road trip. But we are grounded so it’s more like a sit in than a trip. A kid in the final year of senior school and one in the first year of senior school. The elder child is self managing as he is doing something involving writing code. The only code I know is code brown, from managing swimming pools.
The 15 year old, high on anxiety, needs moral support. So I sit beside him and google answers to questions we both don’t understand. But out of the gloom today came this gem.
Year 10 English… write a poem about love, tv, sport or hand washing. The result :
Wash your hands you dirty pig
Before you even eat a fig
Or you will have to say goodbye
Because you will surely die
From thy virus so deadly
I bring to you this shocking medley
Heed my advice
Otherwise your efforts won’t suffice
And you will be rolling the dice
With your very own life
Last week we were studying Romeo and Juliet – the original version. So I love how the ‘thy’ has slipped into this poem in a Shakespearean nod. Too funny, too cute. How’s your home schooling journey coming along? Adapting and thriving, or like us, just surviving. Leave me a comment and tell me your honest, warts and all experience. There is safety in numbers my lovelies.
