There are a variety of activities that are free for the next number of weeks. These should make schooling at home a little easier!

David Walliams is reading one of his stories online every day for the next 30 days - again these are interesting stories the children can listen while the adults take a well-earned break! https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Another idea which would be good for children and adults is encouraging your child to write a letter or draw a picture for a resident in a Care Home such as Lisnisky or in a Fold such as Quarry Gardens. The residents in many places like these are no longer receiving visitors due to social restrictions so they might appreciate a letter or picture from a young child. Letters or pictures could be posted or delivered when your family are out for their daily exercise regime.
Lots of great ways to read with your child, listen to stories or read themselves. Different ways to keep them active engage in activities which would brighten the days
of others. Hopefully these will be useful in the days ahead.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
