10 Easy activity ideas to keep your older children occupied at home...whilst hitting educational goals!
Keeping the children at home during lockdown is tough. Let's face it, if you had wanted to be a teacher you probably would have trained as one! The most important thing to remember is to not put too much pressure on yourself to be everything for everyone. You are more than likely now having to work from home whilst dealing with home schooling and maybe even a younger child hanging around you too. Whatever you achieve over the next few weeks will have added to their education in some way.
But for those of you looking for a few structured activities that link to the curriculum areas, are interesting and will capture their attention AND easy to do at home, I have put together a list below. All these activities are to have fun. Children learn best through play and now you have the opportunity to use their interests to your advantage and make this home schooling far more enjoyable for everyone.
[Please note, these should not replace the work being provided by your school but should work alongside and continue to develop key areas of learning in a fun and exciting way.]
