HOMESCHOOLING: How to occupy your children as schools remain closed
With another national lockdown announced and the switch to homeschooling and online learning, here are a list of ideas to help occupy your children during this time:
- South Shields Museum and Art Gallery have a wide range of resources on their website including primary and secondary school workshops. There are colouring sheets to print off from South Tyneside artist Sheila Graber and a virtual 'mini-mewseum-show'
- Presenter and Edutuber, Maddie Moate is returning to help with this year’s homeschooling.
Maddie and her on screen partner Greg, began lockdown back in March with Live lessons from their spare rooms and are now aiming for 3 live shows a week featuring fun facts and family activities!
You can also access to their previous lessons featuring “Dino Week” and “Project Earth” on Maddie Moates’s Youtube Channel now!
‘Heart and Soul Home schooling’ have created a list of ‘Must Read Winter Books for Kids’.
Reading is a great way to relax and run away with your imagination, some of the favourites include:
‘The Gruffalos Child’ and ‘Cyril the Squirrel and the Nut thieves’.
