Education Activities for Children

 

Sandwell Transition Education Partnership Service (STEPS) Education

Actives for children during school closures March 2020

 

With some children now needing to self-isolate at home and other may be at home due to school closures, various organisations in education, health and care have been pooling resources together in order to provide helpful ideas for home-based activities, including mental and emotional well-being for all the family.  Most are for primary-aged pupils but some are suitable for secondary pupils too. I hope that these are useful for you:
