This blog presents a taste of Owen and Anya's home education journey. The home education experience is varied and unrestricted, Owen and Anya go on regular trips, attend local 'home-ed' groups and generally self-direct their own learning. At home they cook, watch documentaries and films, research things they are interested in on the internet, develop their own computer games and much more. There is no set curriculum so they are free to discuss and explore anything that interests them.
Anya and I have recently started selling vintage jewellery at car boot sales. We have both invested in mixed lots of jewellery purchased at auctions. Anya has purchased her own jewellery using her pocket money and savings. Anya demonstrated a real ability to communicate with the customers, maths and business skills at the car boot sale. She was able to work out her own prices based on what she paid, upsell by offering customer discounts for bulk buys, work out the total costs on large sales, check for fake notes and the correct change.
