Should we be stopping homeschool for the Easter holidays?


School's Out... or is it? Help on how to handle lockdown holidays

As the School of Mum and Dad reaches the end of week two, many of us across the UK have kids who would be breaking up  from school tooday – if the schools weren't closed due to the coronavirus crisis. 

In this video, I explore whether we should be downing tools as we head into the Easter holidays. I've spoken to parents, teachers and experts and have settled on a strategy that will hopefully make the next two weeks a little more manageable and a lot more enjoyable. 

Stay safe and well one and all,

PS The video is 7-minutes long but if you watch until the end, you all get a little something
