Keep the kids busy Posted On 24 March 2020

With most children in Britain off school, we thought we would look at some of the ways people are keeping them busy…

 

Health & Fitness

Over 800,000 people tuned in to Joe Wick’s first YouTube live PE session on Monday morning. The fitness influencer first announced he was going to be holding virtual workouts at 9am each day last week, and with the incredible success of the first video, you can guarantee it won’t be long till the country will be getting fit together, first thing every morning.

Joe has promised to keep the stream going for as long as the schools are closed, however, he added: “We’re going to return to normal and be reconnected again.” The Body Coach isn’t the only fitness professional going online, check out social media for live fitness classes, including yoga and boxercise, in your local area and help to support local businesses today.

Schools and businesses are coming to the rescue to keep your kids up to date with their lessons while not at school. Some schools and colleges are offering live lectures to their students, while a whole host of companies including the BBC, Scholastic and I See Maths are offering informative lessons for children of all ages.

Some of our favourites include:
