Taking to her Instagram account the 30-year-old revealed that she began the day with a virtual PE session with Joe Wicks.
The body coach has launched daily live P.E. lessons for children at 9am on his YouTube channel and Stacey was quick to take full advantage of it.
She filmed her two older boys Zach and Leighton doing star jumps to Kriss Kross’ Jump, and her partner Joe Swash could even be seen joining in.
Tagging Joe, she wrote: “This is amazing Joe! Taken so much pressure off, thank you so much.”

The mum-of-three then moved on to academic learning, but took a realistic approach, allowing her sons to sit on the floor to work and accepting they wouldn’t get everything done.
She said: “I can’t get them to sit at the table so I’m just going with it. I’ll probably get 30mins- 1 hour MAX of this so don’t beat yourself up or worry.”
Stacey also recommended approaching the trickier subjects first.
“I give them the hardest or most important things to do first while they’re fresh then I don’t worry too much about the rest of the day when they’ve had enough,” she said.

And 40 minutes the scene had descended into chaos with Stacey telling parents ‘we’re all in this together.”
To give her kids a bit of fresh air, Stacey devised a period of outdoor play, helping them to make their own noughts and crosses board.
“Going to make a template of a timetable so the boys have a bit of structure,” she shared.
Earlier this week she shared the very organised schedule she had in place for he children’s time at home
“Not starting until 10am and the pink squares are mum time,” she added, with laughing emojis.
Sharing a complete time table filled in, she told fans that it wasn’t “the proper one but its mocked up so you get a rough idea”.
The time table included curriculum work that schools will be sharing with parents to help them teach their children, as well as free play, outdoor learning and craft time.
Stacey is not a total stranger to homeschooling having previously explained to Fabulous why she made the controversial decision to take her kids out of school.
But she revealed in September 2019 that Zachary would be returning to state education as he began secondary school.
