Resources for learning at home

There are lots of free, fun and educational activities available to help keep your child occupied at home, now that local schools have closed in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Many schools will have issued guidance on what children can do whilst they are at home, but just in case you need some more ideas, we have come up with some suggestions to get you started.
