Looking for community help with.... Home education (for parents)

Calling all parents! Who’s loving having the kids around. All. The. Time?

Whilst they may wish it was one long summer holiday, the age of digital has made ‘school from home’ a lot easier.

Here’s some online resources, to keep them on top of their learning and occupied whilst you’re getting dinner ready.

Hope this helps! If you’re a parent, what’s working for you? :point_down:

These are really useful - thanks @JuB

We have school Easter holidays starting (or about to start) for most kids as well, so at least they will be missing fewer school days.

I came across two great community activities if you have younger kids and need to take them on a walk -

Rainbow Trail

Bear Hunt

I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more fun stuff
