Monday, 15 June 2020
Countryside Classroom

We may not venture far this summer, but we can all make jelly, make a paper boat and make up stories; and enjoy learning something new together

Everyone loves a story. Help your children to create their own stories using these hints and tips from an expert.

Summer crafts
Using natural materials to create decorative items such as topiary pots, wall hangings and scented wreaths.

Learning from home: Canal and river habitats
Resources to bring the magic of canals and rivers to children at home.

Learning from home: Rivers
Read the All about rivers fact file, do the Unravelling rivers activities, watch What lives in a river?, play Canoe do it? and create a boat out of paper.

Quick activities
Short activities ranging from a variety of card games to creating an easy bird feeder.

Summer berry jelly recipe
A tasty, no-added-sugar recipe that children can help make and will love to eat. Perfect for using up home-grown summer fruit.

For more home education resources, go to the Countryside Classroom Home Education Hub. We will also be posting weekly blogsĀ  highlighting a range of resources on a particular theme. All resources 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.
