Government Online Educational Resources

To Support Children To Continue Learning At Home

 

GOV.uk have published a list of online resources that parents, and schools can consider to support children to continue learning at home.  The list will be updated over time, and includes a wide range of resources for all ages that schools can consider using as part of their planned curriculum.  They say Schools have already been drawing on existing resources and tools they are familiar with to support children to continue learning at home and should continue to do so.

Gardening:

(top tip: this can also be done indoors!)

 

-  If you have the luxury of having access to a garden, roll up your sleeves and get outside for fresh air. Dig for worms and find mini-beasts!

-  Gardening engages all of the senses while encouraging a love of nature and respect for the environment.

 

Even if you don't have access to green space, there are plenty of ideas you can do indoors.

 

 

 

Stay Fit at Home:

 

The best remedy to beat cabin fever and boost your mood is a bit of Physical Activity.

Luckily, there are also plenty of YouTube based fitness videos available that cater to the entire family.

 

  • PE with Joe Wicks                 can be enjoyed every morning Monday - Friday at 9.00am via live stream (recordings can be watched later).
  • Jumpstart Jonny & Freeze     incorporates music and games, a bit more suitable for younger children.
  • Cosmic Yoga                          offers fantastic family yoga and storytelling classes.

 

 

Arts & Crafts:

 

Crafting is fun and frugal with supplies most households already have at hand.

If you need to restock your supplies, consider these items:

 

  • Marking and Painting – watercolour paint, sidewalk chalk, crayons, markers & colored pencils
  • Natural Materials (find in the garden) – leaves, sticks, flowers, feathers
  • Stringing & Beading – Hama beads, stringing set
  • Papers – lined, craft, poster & tissue
  • Sticking – glue sticks, PVA & tape


Some fun DIY crafts include:
