Our advice is that you should plan and maintain a structured timetable and limit the amount of screen-time. Include some reading, writing and maths every day, but be realistic about how much time your child should spend ‘working’ (and definitely try not to get stressed if things don’t workout how you expect!). There are a number of online daily activities you could build your timetable around (some listed below) but do make time for creativity, child-led activities (projects/research/own interest), and play.

Jo Wicks workouts (live on Youtube at 9am but available afterwards); Diverse Dance 10 mins dance workouts (Facebook Live at 1.30pm); BBC Boogie Babies; Disney 10 Minute Shakeups; BBC Super-Movers;
