Remember that while learning is important, at this time of unprecedented uncertainty, so are family activities, such as having fun and getting out of the house, getting fresh air and keeping active, where appropriate and following the Government guidance on social distancing and self isolation.
It's very important to keep talking, especially about the future and how much we will all appreciate normal life when it resumes.
Learning is not just 'school work'. This can be a great opportunity for your children to learn wider skills such as learning to cook, sew, weigh, measure, use tools, invent, make and build. This is a perfect opportunity to play board games, learn an instrument or another new skill and let children use apps so they can stay in touch with their friends.
Please, please encourage READING - World Book Online has just made their collection of 3,000 ebooks and audiobooks available for free for children to access at home and of course there are many books available in Serial Mash, part of Purple Mash, which all children in school have access to.
'Visiting' places of interest has taken on a new approach. There are plenty of virtual tours of museums, such as those offered by Google Arts and Culture.
