For parents who are struggling to find online resources for younger children you’ll find links here.

Remember that you’re a parent not a teacher. No one expects you to recreate a school day so be kind to yourself

With this in mind, my Nephew, Mike Glenton, who is a Deputy Head Teacher, has created a list of possible websites, online learning and ideas to give children short, sharp bursts of learning through games.

He suggests that you do perhaps three of these in the morning, with breaks in between and have the afternoon to do an activity (go for a walk nearby , do some gardening, play a board game etc.) so that children are also getting that much needed time to socialise and relax.
