I'm just back from the Learn Free conference arranged by the Christian Home Educators of Warwickshire. The conference was held in beautiful surroundings at the King's Lodge, Nuneaton.
A useful and thought provoking day with speakers, brain storming with other home educators and of course, looking at curriculum.
Sally Ann Wagner gave some vivid stories of home educating in South Africa. I'm grateful that I don't have to tackle black mambas in the garden! The session on the Secondary Years had insights from three mothers who have taught or are teaching this age group.
As well as the vendor stools, there was a helpful session called Teaching Toolbox where people stood with their favourite resources and talked to others about them.
Now, there is plenty to think about and research. My notebook has several pages of notes from the talks and seminars.
I am grateful to Juliet English, Mary Nevin and their team for organising this event.
England isn't known for its home education conferences but if you missed this, there is another day conference on 31st May, at Whiddon Valley Evangelical Church in Barnstaple.
