Learn something new this lockdown
It's week 9 of lockdown and, even though the rules are being eased little by little, it still feels like I'm constantly searching for new things to do and new ways to keep everyone entertained (and half-term is not going to be much respite!).
I've found it particularly useful speaking to other Mums and sharing ideas to help each other get through each week. You may have read our wonderful Producer Hannah's article, sharing how she's navigated the home school timetable. It certainly helped our family. We've been mixing one-to-one lessons and DIY project-based learning into our week. It's also allowed me a little more focused time on my own work. They're both doing Perform At Home too, of course, which leads me nicely into our next project.
Roll up, roll up! Welcome to Circus School!
In keeping with The Greatest Show on Earth theme behind our interactive online classes, we'll be turning the house into a mini Circus School. We've been inspired by 12 year old Louis, who has spent the last week or so developing his circus and magic skills and, with our help, has filmed these fantastic short videos.
Stay safe. Stay happy. Stay healthy!
