EX-EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa has opened up about the pressures of homeschooling during lockdown – admitting she’s sticking to “fun classes” for now.
The actor, 28, revealed all in a confessional-style video shared to Instagram.
She explained to her 3.1 million fans that she finds trying to teach Ella, five, to be “really, really hard” – partly because the little one finds it difficult to concentrate at home.
Jacqueline began: “We’ve had a late start today, had a late breakfast, I haven’t started schoolwork.
“But what I was gonna say is: there’s just no pressure because it’s really, really hard.
“Ella’s finding it difficult to concentrate, she’s only five years old. I don’t have to teach geography and it is what it is.”
Despite the challenges she’s facing with homeschool – a feeling echoed by Corrie mum Catherine Tyldesley and millions of parents right across the UK – Jacqueline is still making sure Ella does something educational while schools are closed.
She added: “But we will try and do something educational today. I’ve been going through and seeing some of the fun classes we can get her to do.”
Shortly after the candid admission, I’m A Celeb winner Jacqueline revealed her children’s drama school – the Jac Jossa Academy – is starting an engaging, five-week online workshop for children aged seven and over.
She then shared a cute clip of Ella doing a dance, while younger sister Mia, two, watched from the doorway.
