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 any potential school closures.

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have gathered perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.
