Learning Together at Home


In response to the coronavirous situation many companies are offering online resources and subscriptions for free to help parents/carers support learning at home when/if schools and settings are closed. This is so helpful and generous. So with this in mind, I have put together some links to online ideas for hands on and active learning you can do with your nursery child in the event of a school closure.

Note of caution- these resources were not written for this specific situation so mentions of being out and about eg at the library need to be highlighted as not appropriate in this unprecedented circumstance.
