Great for developing grit and resilience), Daily Learning Challenge (A learning style activity for all ages which aims to engage your child and incorporate awe and appreciation of the world. Basic literacy and maths skills links where appropriate), Weekly Exercise (A weekly challenge set by our resident head teacher and veteran GB triathlete) and Advice for Parents (Tips and advice on topics to help you manage these potentially challenging times).
