With the vast majority of children now at home and Government guidelines urging anyone who can work from home to do so, is now really the time to attempt to tackle the national curriculum from the kitchen table?

Parents are divided on the topic, with some updating their social media with strict schedules set for their children’s school day, whilst others are taking a more relaxed approach.

Some teachers are offering work for students, whilst others are campaigning that parents don’t even attempt to teach their children the subjects they are missing whilst in lockdown.

Do you agree that keeping to a routine will be beneficial for your family, do you thrive in organised chaos, or is a more fluid approach what works best in your home?
