Tom Fletcher Shares His Real Homeschooling Experience

Homeschooling not quite going to plan? Don't worry, Tom Fletcher can relate.

Like a lot of parents out there, Tom Fletcher has been giving this "homeschooling" thing a try. His students, however, were not quite in the mood for letters and maths homework.

Homeschooling is going well...

In the first video, posted last night, Tom attempts to teach Buddy some letters, while Buddy climbs on his back.

In the second video, Tom attempts to teach his eldest son, Buzz, some maths. "Welcome back to homeschool, this is lesson two - this is maths with daddy."

Tom, attempting to put some structure on the lesson, asks his son "If I have four Lego pieces, and I take away three lego pieces..." but he can't finish his sentence with Buzz's infectious laughter.

These adorable videos gave us the laugh we definitely needed today, and made us feel a little bit less alone in our homeschooling attempts.
