People Are Sharing Their Homeschooling Attempts And It's Hilarious

The closure of schools across England has turned the lives of millions of families upside down. For the second time in less than a year, parents have had to become teachers - and living rooms have transformed into classrooms as students have to learn from home.

As we head into our third nationwide lockdown, homeschool is once again in session and luckily, many parents have posted some of the most hilarious homeschool situations on Twitter to joke about their new lives as unlikely teachers.

One Dad posted a tweet which reads like an announcement from Big Brother: He said: "Homeschool day 1. 8:30, 6yr old still snoring, 1yr old watching Room on the Broom. 43yr old drinking tea and doing emails, pretending they are actually a useful work task."

A mum said: "I've been demoted (thankfully) from teacher to merely the provider of: food, reminders to move and hopelessly incompetent IT support."

Technical difficulties is a big concern amongst parents on social media. Another Dad shared: "Homeschool day 1: attempts to use Google classroom. 45 minutes later, phones very clever neighbour who works for Deepmind to get help."

Another mum said: "Fell asleep watching Netflix on my phone after setting work for the kids and eating the last of the Christmas Lindor."

"Youngest son (7) spent break time trying to purchase grenades via Amazon," admitted on Twitter user. "I now see on my account... oh, and I helped build a Lego/Jenga avalanche. All gin types accepted."

The range in homeschool experiences are rather extraordinary. A mum took to Twitter and said: "Homeschool. Day 1. 1st hour. 5yr old, clutching stick, raving like Gandalf in deep mines, lost in imaginary reverie. Unreachable. 11yr old, battling for survival and bloodshed in Fortnite, unreachable. 13 yr old. Still in deep sleep. Ditto 16yr old, looking at puppies on laptop."

The normal curriculum requires P.E. as part of the school week and that usually entails a sport such as football, athletics or handball. But what about modern contemporary choreography? Well, one mum shared what she and her child did to supplement the P.E. part of homeschool.

She said: "P.E. involved watching [Harry Styles's] Treat People With Kindness video on repeat trying to copy the moves." This sounds like the ideal P.E. lesson to us.

Art is also part of the curriculum although art classes at homeschool might be slightly... different, shall we say? One parent said: "My son keeps making me draw peanuts, which he then paints over with brown paint. What shall I draw now, I ask. Peanut, he says. I draw a peanut. I'm very proud of you daddy, he says, smearing the brown paint all over the paper. Another peanut? Another peanut."

We would give all these homeschools and 'Outstanding' rating if we were Ofsted.
