If your kids are anything like mine then they are going to want to spend this time off school stuck in front of a screen. Of course, they need to still be carrying on with their education but while we are all stuck at home, fighting to keep our sanity I am happy to loosen the rules a little around screen time.
Yesterday I published a list of home learning online resources but I know my boys are going to appreciate being able to do some of their learning off a screen. If your child is like this too then check out this list of educational YouTube channels.
