Ideas and Support

This period of school closure is difficult in so many ways.  One of the hardest things some people are finding, is how to keep their children occupied within the confines of the house for so many hours each day.  There is no expectation that parents try to replicate the learning, support and activities that children would normally be doing at school.  It is about doing our best under difficult circumstances and hopefully having a little fun along the way!
