Home Learning online ideas

In the current situation please remember play is the best way of learning, and the best thing for mental health and wellbeing. Laugh, play, create, pretend, sing and enjoy as much as possible.

Most young children will remember how their family home felt during the corona virus pandemic more than anything specific about the virus. Our children are watching us and learning about how to respond to stress and uncertainty. Let’s wire our children for resilience, not panic.”
