As home educators we had to decide early on how to tackle teaching to children of two different ages. At 3 and 9 the mainstream education system would place them worlds apart for all subjects but we have decided that where possible they will learn together. I plan each session in such a way that the work is tailored to each child making sure that their learning styles and abilities are taken into account. If Theo has been asked to write about a topic I will provide Tristan with the same information but it will be in picture format. He will recap what he has learnt by cutting or sticking relevant pictures or colouring in an image related to the topic. This system works incredibly well for us.
