Take your time and have fun.
A couple of quality hours throughout the day (20/30 minute sessions) is more than enough. They don't need to be sat at a table working for 5 hours.
Learning is fun and isn't always about sitting down at a table. Lego, playdough and toys all hold educational value.
There are plenty of free educational apps to use on ipads/tablets etc.
Enjoy getting outside. Wrap up warm and enjoy a little or big walk. Getting outside will help.
Do what you can! A little of something will always be better than nothing. Remember if its not working, stop and have a break!
Worksheets: If we do attach a worksheet to a lesson, please do not feel you have to print it out. the worksheet may be just a guide or an example on how to set out the activity. Also we will be providing exercise books so the children can write their answers in there.
