In today’s EADT Daily podcast an Ipswich teacher talks homeschooling tips, how coronavirus is impacting his GCSE students, and why it’s important to give Year 11s a proper goodbye.

Parents and students are coming to the end of their first week of homeschooling, with some feeling stressed, others concerned they haven’t done enough and some enjoying the relaxed change of lifestyle.
