The natural world lives by some rules and one of them is adapting to each season. As a home-educating family, we are trying to align ourselves with nature’s ways by creating a seasonal structure to our free-flow learning. In our first year of tuning in to the seasons, we have found a rhythm – it is working for every member of the family and that is the key.
I could be that mother bear, hibernating and taking care of my cubs in the den (popping out for fresh air and friends a few times a week) and then emerging in the spring to rub off the winter fur by dancing against our favourite tree (watch the visual on David Attenborough’s Planet Earth II DVD and you will see exactly what I mean).
