This page is full of useful links and activity ideas to keep your little ones busy over lockdown, school absence and Summer Holidays.  There are plenty of ideas to support Reception and Year One children which you can dip into as and when you need some inspiration!


I have not included baking, cooking, gardening, car washing, toy cleaning, outdoor treasure hunts, board games, jigsaws, bike rides, role play and imaginative play, but as we well know - these are all fantastic learning opportunities for your child to develop in all areas of the curriculum, especially when supported by a grown up.
