With schools closed, this is a time where we will be working out what to do best for our children. Just like every child is different, every house will be approaching this in different ways depending on your own individual circumstances. There may be some families wanting to and are able to continue with learning at home, and this may look different house to house. Below we have a collection of websites to enable you to access resources if you wish to or are in a position to.
When in their world all is being cancelled, being able to laugh, hope, have fun, learn new things and be with friends and family (maybe virtually) is not cancelled for our little people.
