Getting ready for school again
After nine months of home schooling for most of our Happy House children, they were thrilled to be getting ready to go back to the classrooms to start a new academic year at Happy House School.
Two year groups had returned last term, as the government decreed, but yesterday schools were again opening fully. And that means youngsters will again be reunited with their friends who come in as day pupils - many of home will have received little, if any, home education.
Our children at Happy House have been home schooled, with the introduction of lessons delivered using Zoom, in formal year groups in a classroom setting - using desks and chairs from school.
They were all taken back to school by our children, an eager army of volunteers, who carried the desks and chairs the short distance down the lane from home to school.
