The other day I had a fellow mum message me asking me for some inspiration on homeschool themes. I have found setting a weekly theme has really helped to keep things fun and creative with homeschooling. Homeschooling themse also help to give some kind of structure so I’m not left thinking – my god what on earth are we going to do this week!?
Although there are now various resources becoming available online to help structure your homeschooling – things like the daily lessons from BBC Bitesize and of course Oak National Academy I prefer doing our own thing very loosely in line with the various elements of the curriculum (I don’t check lol!) but based around fun weekly themes.
With that said, I wanted to share with this list of homeschooling themes which we have put together to pick from for homeschooling during Coronavirus. This is not to say we are going to be doing all of these, but probably some! So feel free to pick and choose and use any of these for inspiration…..

Well then, head over to our friends at Homeschool Guru for this awesome list of 101 ideas for homeschooling – for this or any week!
