Learning at home

During the unusual circumstances of the coronavirus, we would like to offer parents, carers, school teachers and anyone involved with children an opportunity to take part in daily learning outside. Each of the activities you see below have been written and/or tested by us. It gives your children a chance to do something outdoors, and in some cases indoors.

Please be sure to comply 100% with Government guidelines, on the amount of time spent outdoors, social distancing, and more.

Keep safeā€¦ and keep loving learning.
