It’s not just the UK but schools and educational institutions, across the globe are closing to help control the spread of Corona Virus… and rightly so!

Home schooling and working from home is going to be a challenge even for those of us who maybe used to working from home !! I have complied a list of some online resources and some tips that can help parents who maybe feeling anxious!

Remember a couple of things though:

1. We are all human and we can only do our best!

2. All learning does not have to be online!

3. All learning does not come from a worksheet!

4. Our kids need their parents at this scary time!

5. Mental health, engagement, enjoyment during this difficult time are absolutely key for us all!!
