What Course Program Should I Choose & When Can I Start?

Full Year Option

Our full program is 32 weeks of work split into 4 terms. It can be started at any time.

If you wish to begin mid-term or mid-year you can still pick up the course from Term One – Week One or another term. However, starting the course at a different week other than week one, will mean your reading schedule may need to be adjusted initially.

Lite Start Option

The Lite Start program is 6 months of work. It can be started at any time. We generally recommend our Lite Start courses for:

  • students starting mid-year, or for families who only want half a year of work.
  • DIY families preparing their own curriculum who want additional teaching material to supplement work at a grade level.
  • students who are repeating a grade.

Unlike the Full Year Option, our Lite Start Courses only meet part of the Australian Curriculum & NSW syllabus requirements for the corresponding grade.

  • Upgrade to full version available at an additional cost of $330.

Year 6 Homeschool Curriculum Summary

Stage 3 NSW Syllabus

In English Year Six, students continue to work on developing their literacy skills. They enjoy poetry, and historical fiction. Using copywork, they continue practising their cursive writing. This year they are also offered an optional Latin calligraphy copywork resource. Regular dictation of Australian and New Zealand literature supports spelling and vocabulary development. Our content rich curriculum gives students additional comprehension and writing opportunities.

We also include a number of novels and provide a novel study guide to use on one of the novels. Our novels include themes of world government and population geography.

Earth Science includes lessons and living books on the Geology and the prevention of natural disasters. Chemistry and Physics topics are covered using science videos and notebooking. For Biology children watch a series of videos on soil, biodynamic farming, yeasts, fungus, and First Nations peoples’ perspectives on biodiversity. Nature Study for Year 6 includes looking at local landforms.

Humanities and Social Science focuses on modern history, prime ministers, presidents and World leaders. Our geography is an overview of Australian geography and landforms. While examining key industries in Australia we look at the Economics of consumerism and production.

If you are looking for an overview of history from another country alternatives are suggested, and New Zealand families have an exclusive My Homeschool history book alternative.

We also include Art and Music Appreciation courses for group study. Your child can also create artworks with indigenous themes on the family.

Online workout classes and other resources support the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education of your child.

While we do not include a Maths program, we do provide guidance on the best ones to select and offer exclusive discounts on recommended Mathematics products.

Global Goodies and Extension Resources are also provided with our Full Year Programs. These include a range of additional resources that can be used for families wishing to substitute some of our Australia specific content or looking for an extension of our curriculum. Please Note: Global Goodies are not included in the Lite Start Courses.

Latin is introduced through copywork. You will need to purchase additional resources if you wish to focus on teaching a specific language. We give guidance and recommendations on this. Please Note: Languages are not included in the Lite Start Courses.

We Use A Blended Learning Approach

At My Homeschool most of your lessons will be completed offline (reading from a book, doing a field trip, or writing in your notebooks) and some will be online learning (watching videos, reading online etc.).

All our resources are digital and are located on Moodle, a renowned online learning platform used by many schools and universities. Using this format means we give you exceptional functionality which enables you to record your progress, and access your lessons from various digital devices and locations.  This format also enables us to keep our resources fresh and dynamic.

A laptop, tablet, or desktop computer is needed to use our courses. Access to a printer is also necessary. PDFs can be downloaded and printed for offline reading but other resources can only be viewed from our learning platform.

The majority of our classes require reading from a real book or paper-based resource. Writing exercises involve pencils and paper and many lessons are oral or conversation based.

Video lessons require access to the My Homeschool learning portal.

The Moodle App can be downloaded onto your smartphone for on the go lessons and checking progress but is not recommended as the main digital device for reading and viewing lessons.

A Co-ordinated Curriculum

My Homeschool offers parents the confidence that their child is gaining knowledge, learning content, and developing skills in an age-appropriate way. This is achieved by presenting courses that follow a rich curriculum that ensures your child builds on their knowledge year after year.

From Foundation to Year 10 your child will have the benefit of a streamlined curriculum without overlaps and unnecessary busywork.

Our program development is based on the education philosophy of Charlotte Mason and the Australian Curriculum (which includes the NSW Syllabus & WA Curriculum). 

Registration and Reporting

At My Homeschool, we do not do your registration plans for you. Registration applications are meant to be specific for each individual child and so parents are the best person to do this. However, we make your registration (or an exemption) so much easier because we provide so much support for this process.  All our courses includes:

  • An Education Plan offered in a format that you can individualise for your child. An Australian;
  • A Scope and Sequence showing how My Homeschool reflects the Australian Curriculum and NSW Syllabus;
  • End of Term Report templates;
  • A printable week-by-week planner with plenty of space to make notes specific to your child (no need to purchase a separate planner!); and
  • An online Weekly Planner, complete with links to all the online resources required.

We also provide you with access to our State Rego and Planning Course which guides you through your homeschool application (and some international options!) when using our courses.

We give you a shortcut to help you get straight into giving your child a delightful and robust education without spending days and days researching and tweaking unsuitable content.

Community Support
When you buy a course through My Homeschool you are joining a community that supports and mentors parents interested in educating their children academically and spiritually. All My Homeschool families have access to our vibrant Community Forum. This is the place where parents connect and share what is happening in their homeschool.  Expert homeschoolers are always there to share top tips and answer any questions you may have.

Teaching Support

We also offer regular teaching support opportunities and have an extensive library of homeschooling resources, including resources on the specific registration and reporting requirements of a number of states, territories and countries. Whether you are just starting out or have homeschooled for years, there is something to teach and inspire you.

Curated Content
We aim to give you confidence that you can educate your children with a worldview that honours Judeo-Christian principles whilst providing strong academic outcomes. Our resources are not predominantly Christian because we look for outstanding resources and often a secular resource is the best option. We have a number of families who use our curriculum who are secular or from other faiths and we do not include devotional material or specific religious instruction in our curriculum.

Our Year Six Homeschool Curriculum Lacked Structure

In the early years of homeschooling, I got away with a loose structure. However, it wasn’t till my third child hit sixth grade that I discovered (or reluctantly accepted) structure is as important as a good curriculum.

We used an inspired Charlotte Mason curriculum, but I had unrealistic expectations of what I could achieve in a year. I over purchased books because everything sounded so good. This meant I had too many books to read, and I didn’t know how to schedule it all. It was a planning headache.

I set the pace and controlled the schedule, so my children became dependent on me dishing out all the lesson content and waited for me to tell them what was next. If I stopped, they stopped. I needed to expect more independent learning from my children at this age, but it took a while for me to figure out a system that worked.

Finally, I did but then I had another problem.

Living books didn’t fit neatly into subject areas and so explaining my plan for registration was tricky.

All my homeschool friends had the same curriculum compliance problem, we all needed to meet our state homeschool requirements to stay registered (or get an exemption). We all had a different way of meeting the requirements for registration.

When I created My Homeschool, I wanted to solve these two problems.

To do that, we set up a structured program with a weekly schedule that meant your child could work independently on some of their lessons and you could keep track of their learning. Secondly, we made sure that the system we used met Australian state requirements.

Voila!

Since 2017 My Homeschool has helped thousands of families give their kids a Charlotte Mason inspired education without having to worry about the stress of: ‘Is my child doing enough?’ and “Will I get approved?’

I hope we can help you too!

Story by Michelle Morrow (Founder of My Homeschool)

Although we only used your My Homeschool curriculum for a few short weeks in Taiwan, and then again during our quarantine, we feel it was beneficial in helping Isaac adjust to the education requirements and subject knowledge required for students in Australia ... in particular - beyond the basics of English, Maths, Science etc. - the Civics curriculum and the introduction to Australian PMs.  Thank you also for your efforts in developing a curriculum that allows for the secular subjects whilst also giving room for Christian families like ours. On that note, your science (geology) textbook, with its focus on the God of Creation, is most excellent.

International Homeschool Reviews, Year 6 Curriculum

I love that I have a place to start with organising a personalised curriculum. I love the access to the Primary Language Lessons, copy work, and  geography resources.

To have a grade by grade list of resources suggested and available for the various subjects is great!!

Although I haven't as yet made proper use of the community hub, I plan to and it is reassuring to have that available!

We combine our Year 4 and Year 6 children together.

Appreciate all the work that has gone into creating each grade level work.

As a teacher & homeschooling parent, I have an appreciation for all the time that has been put into developing the content appropriate to each grade.

Thank you.
