"Buzz Buzz" ... "Ring Ring" ... Oh it's the alarm again. A sound I hate so much and yet has me awake in a millisecond. I am however an avid user of the snooze function. Something they should never have invented as it often makes me late! Do they not know how much I love my bed? And how little self control I have?? So here we are again! Another day another zoom meeting x 4! I drag myself up after 1 snooze and 2 minutes before the next. I hear Jessica's feet thump out of bed and the time is 08:48. Sophie is due on zoom at 9am so I whip up the stairs to wake her up. We go to Jessica's bed as she has got out of it and snuggle down together for 5 minutes. Her soft little cheeks resting on mine. These are the most precious of relaxed moments. Shame we are time limited but off we go downstairs for zoom at 08:59.
Tried to log in on her ipad but it's not working again so default to my laptop and arrive 7 minutes late. The work in straight forward and they haven't started yet so all good. Today they had to lengthen a sentence by adding the word And - then expanding. The first part of the sentence was "I peeked my head out of the rope AND a little child picked up the mouse and drove him home" was what she added in her writing here.
Sophie's zoom ended and I logged Jessica onto Maths. This was at 10:15am - Today she did a revision of symmetry. She had to draw some of her own. I don't really get to hear what's going on in her zoom as i'm either busy with Sophie or on the sofa and she's up the table. During this time I fed Sophie breakfast - around 10:15 - Whilst Jess was occupied.
Roll on to 10:30 and it was Sophie's Maths zoom time! She had to fill in the gaps on a sheet the number, the word number and the representation. The line or stick represents 10. She found this dead easy. Her finding Maths is a testament to me really from last lockdown! Just gonna blow my own trumpet a minute - something I extremely rarely do! When I was teaching her last lockdown I have them daily Maths and English worksheets. She was whizzing through them so I started her on Year 1 work. So basically she is ahead of most of the others in the class in this area. She's always loved numbers so just going with the love of them. I honestly thought I had messed them up and they would be so behind after lockdown. But after the parent's evening in November they confirmed that she was ahead in reading and Maths than the other children. And doing well with English etc. And was in line with her keywords - Which if you remember I also kept her working hard on daily. So i'm proud of myself really that I did so well. Jessica's review was also good and no areas of concern. Middle of the road. The only issue was she has messy writing LOL! Takes after me then ...
