In Covid-19

For the majority of households the trickiest part of the UK lockdown is trying to keep the family entertained and educated whilst staying indoors. 

I know Joe Wicks has been doing a fantastic job of keeping people moving but if you need a break from the squats a few of our Brighton friends have put together some resources and activities to do at home: 

Brighton Fringe - The fabulous team have put together a free colouring book to download - while it's aimed at kids I think this one would be good for grown-ups too! 

BA i360 Home School Challenge - Every Monday the i360 will publish free school resources for both KS1 & KS2. In addition to these worksheets they will also suggest a range of fun activities & challenges to try.  

Black Cat Treasure Hunts are offering free ideas for indoor treasure and scavenger hunts as well as free Brighton & Sussex picture / quirky question quizzes to keep everyone entertained. Email: to get your copy

Wakehurst - In addition to following Wakehurst on Facebook to see photos of the beauiful gardens we suggest checking their website as they are part of Kew and there are lots of scientific articles & videos for you to read, watch & learn together with. 

Sea Life Brighton - Here's a fun one, every day Sea Life are sharing Shark Facts on their facebook page for you to learn together and then quiz each other on at the end of the week. 

Brighton & Hove Libraries - Younger kids (and maybe some grown-ups too!) can still enjoy story-time just visit the libraries Facebook page at 10.15am each day to live-stream story-time. Plus you can still borrow books from the library with the Borrow Box app

  • Do make sure you are following Brighton Libraries on Facebook as in addition to their own storytime they are also sharing lots of great ways to keep kids entertained at home. 

These are just a few of the resources we have coem across so far but if you have found others or just want to share some ideas that have worked for you & your family then please comment below.

Good luck!


PS Did you know there are over 500 species of shark? See we're learning too!
