With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during school closure.
We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.
We also have our School Learning Zone with carefully selected resources mapped to different subjects across the National Curriculum.

Power of Kindness Calendar
As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference. The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts. This would be a lovely thing to do over the Easter break.
PE with Joe
With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic. The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.
Freddy Fit Workouts
Eating a balanced diet isn’t the only thing you need to do to keep your body healthy. Exercise helps strengthen your bones and muscles which can help you stay fit and active when you are older. Freddy recommends doing at least 1 hour of exercise every day to keep us fit and strong. Please select from the documents below and visit the Freddy Fit website by clicking on the picture link.
