Corona Home School Activities

From Monday 23rd March I’m going to post a creative activity every day on my website at 9:00 AM.

The activities will be principally aimed at primary aged children but hopefully might be enjoyable for anyone.

It’s all based on tried and tested things that have worked in schools based on my books. It’s of course lovely if you’d like to buy one of the books that link to the projects!

It’s not  neccessary to buy the books but they will help with inspiration and for this self-employed person to get through the crisis! : )

There will be a weekly theme and each activity will be broken down into simple instructions and should fill two low stress hours.

There will be no special materials needed- but if you like the sound of joining in you’ll need pencils, biros, plain paper, scissors, some kind of paper glue and masking tape.

I have 4 weeks, Monday to Friday planned. They will appear below and on the menu on the right as I publish them.

week 1, beginning 23/3/20 : Sea Voyages.:

Monday- Island maps

Tuesday- Monsters

Wednesday- 3D Islands

Thursday- Word Dreaming

Friday- Sea Voyage Poems

based on Dolphins Keep Me Safe in Dreams and The Shipwrecked Sailor

week 2: Week Beginning 30/3/20 Letters to My Alien Friend

Every day this week I’ll be providing activities based on poems from Me and my Alien Friend:

Monday- Making my Alien Friend

Tuesday- A Den for Daisy

Wednesday- who is your super hero?

Thursday- Interview with an Alien


week 3: Inspired by Nonsense

based on Dolphins Keep Me Safe in Dreams and The Shipwrecked Sailor

week 4: Who lives in Dragons’ Wood? –  Storyland Forests

Hopefully helpful for some people, if not at least good exercise for my brain!

I’ll post links to all the activities on my blog, Facebook and Twitter.
