HOME EDUCATION HUB: Activities for spring

Sunday, 05 April 2020
Countryside Classroom

To support home educators, Countryside Classroom will be posting weekly blogs highlighting a range of their education resources on a particular theme. All were originally written for school use, but are equally suitable for education at home, while following government guidelines on social distancing.

Do share what you are doing with us, and other home educators, at #CountrysideClassroom. 

Springtime activities 
Indoor and outdoor fun activities to share with your children. There are bird feeders, small garden projects, a springtime recipe and more!  

My carrot diary
See how carrots are grown on farms, then grow some yourselves, indoors or out, and learn a lot of science along the way.    

Live farm webcam
Straight from the lambing shed at Romshed Farm in Kent.  

Sheep and wool
Learn more about sheep and lambing and try some craft activities using wool, including friendship bracelets and simple weaving.  

Seasonal celebrations
Suggested activities for special days and times of year, including May Day. 

Spring recipe: salmon and asparagus tart
Enjoy the short UK asparagus season with this delicious recipe, and learn some cooking skills along the way.

Outdoor magic number square  
Use items scavenged round the garden for a practical maths task while enjoying the spring sunshine.
