Sebastian, Aiden and Ella homeschooled with Wolsey Hall Oxford for 18 months while they travelled around Europe in a caravan.
Things to be aware of
Sebastian – When it comes to studying while travelling, there have been points where I have struggled with motivation (especially when we were staying at a campsite in France and everyone else was on holiday). There have also been times when I’ve fallen behind slightly but luckily I have my parents, as well as, my Student Progress Manager to help keep me on track. I’m looking forward to writing my IGCSE‘s, in France, in May 2020.
Aiden -With all of the pros of this trip, there are still a couple of cons. At times we have struggled with poor internet when we haven’t been able to access the online resources. I’ve also found that I can get quite easily distracted, which means at times I have fallen behind on my coursework. Lately I feel I have been getting better at focusing and I’m almost back on track. To summarise, my first six months of homeschooling has been an amazing experience so far with a couple of bumps along the way but, hopefully, in the near future those bumps will smooth out.
Ella – At times I find homeschooling a bit difficult, mainly over the summer holidays, because all the children we have met are on vacation and it’s easy to get distracted and not keep up with your timetable.
Mum Karen – There you have it, six months done and dusted and three children who are enjoying the incredible benefits of homeschooling. As a family we are really excited at the prospect of what lies ahead over the next 6 months and are looking forward to continuing our homeschool journey.
