I am not going to lie, as a mum to two teenage boys lockdown created some real issues for us from an educational perspective. Neither of my boys really found online learning engaging.

Where I try to see if an old dog can learn new tricks! I am doing this in a couple of ways, firstly I am trying to improve my photography by taking a Capturing Childhood course. I have started on the Collect the Moments e-course. It is challenging me to think differently and I am learning lots of new things about my six year old camera. I have even ordered a remote control so I can “be in the picture” more often. The Kats’ are helpful, insightful and […]
The Olympic Logo is one of the four major symbols of the Olympic games, along with the medals, touch and mascots. I printed out all of the previous Olympic logos and we made a timeline of the previous Olympic games from them, adding the year and the venue.
