She's come up with a home-schooling daily schedule for her children.

It contains six one-hour lessons followed by an after-school club, with a particular focus on the home-schooling section of the curriculum.

The day starts at 9am with a home economics 'food tech' class focusing on how to make coffee - a very handy skill if their parents are working from home.

Once they've cracked that, it's time to move onto mechanical engineering at 10am.

She writes: "How to assemble and operate a Shark hoover."

Again, very handy.

At 11am PE starts, which involves running outside, taking the rubbish and recycling out with them.

After lunch it's chemistry, which will see the kids learning about bleach - with particular focus on how to put it down the toilet.

2pm is geography, with the mum explaining the plan as: "Lessons in where floor items that they tossed belong.

"Tidy up and put away ready for use another day."

The final lesson of the day is another science class, but this time the kids will study how washing up liquid can remove grease from dirty pans.

Thankfully the mum has also thought about the after school clubs, which will also be cancelled, and has alternative activities all planned.

She writes: "Go to your room on your iPad and be quiet".

She shared her idea on Facebook and other parents have been quick to praise her ideas.
