PE with Joe
Join Joe Wicks Monday – Friday at 9am. Start your day off with a good work out to get the brains going. If you miss the session his videos are still on his YouTube channel. 
Art-Hub for Kids
I use art hub for kids all the time in school, we absolutely love it. There is now a bank of thousands of drawing tutorials on the Art-Hub YouTube page, search for something that interests you and have a great time learning how to draw it. Make sure to send Art-Hub a picture of your work and they might share it, as well as that SEND US A PHOTO on the class dojo. 

The School Run: 

This is a site with lots of advice for supporting your child with their learning at home. There is a free trial subscription, however all the advice and helpful activities are accessible for free. You would only need to sign up if you were interested and wanted to download their resources. I found free APPs to download to support my child with money. It is packed with thousands of helpful tips and ideas.

Mindfulness Meditation with Sesame Street

This one made me laugh. You MUST check out snack chat, it made me laugh so hard! However, there are loads of videos to help your child in so many ways, from trying new food, to meditating and being calm. Well worth a look.
