The next bit of bad weather is blowing in. Yes that lake has sneaked in again…. Admit you will miss it when it’s gone.

The online schooling system is kicking back into life. Will it bring more support for Hawklad? Well if it’s like the last lockdown then it will certainly become a lot more structured. The day will follow the school timetable. The pupils need to sign in at the start of the lesson and work through the online tasks. A teacher ot teaching assistant is online to help and monitor work. Pupils then have until 7pm to complete all tasks and submit them. Failure to do so gets an automatic negative.

So on the bright side the chances of Hawklad being missed are reduced. But then the downsides. Increased timetable pressures. Often it feels more like monitoring than support. Lots of checks of work being submitted on time but often no feedback after that. Oh those pesky interactive video sessions. He hates them. I’m not far behind him on that. It just doesn’t suit him.

On top of that the one teacher who seemed to understand this has now left. Will someone else step up to the plate?

So here goes then. The rollercoaster is back in operation.

  1. I think the rollercoaster will continue until there is a system that is able to pick up children like Hawklad. Otherwise, the system will stereotype push its line and forget about the order to convey knowledge to children.

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that, as an entity, school systems don’t care about individual students, anymore. The cookie cutter approach is the only tool in their collective cabinets. Individual teachers may care a great deal but, are slaves to the engine.

  3. The online schooling does sound stressful, and like Hawklad, I would be uncomfortable with the interactive video sessions, but at least he’s home, he’s safe. Something to be said for that. Hugs to you both.

  4. Please keep arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times🎢

    Ben is supposed to be Zooming this week. We have not even thought about trying to sign him on. Distance Learning doesn’t work for him. We just had that horrendous 2 meeting IEP where we all agreed it didn’t work.

    Sorry to see bad weather coming your way. It was nice to see the Sun shining on your corner of the world. Let’s hope the metaphorical sun keeps shining and another teacher or aide steps in to help Hawklad 🤞

    We can do this!!💌💌💌
