With schools closed to avoid the spread of Coronavirus, parents have been given the task to keep their children educated and entertained.

Schools everywhere have sent parents the resources they need to maintain education during the pandemic however, it is not as simple as it sounds.

Adapting to working from home through online resources

Parents have had to find a way to juggle their children’s routines on top of their own, proving difficult in most households.

This includes finding an area that is suitable for the children’s study needs, keeping them concentrated and away from distractions.

Completing work sent from schools to keep minds active.

On top of school work, educational organisations have made resources available to parents to use from home.

Khan Academy is a non profit organisation that is created by experts and free for families everywhere, offering parents another way to keep their kids minds active.

As well as educational work, as children are in the house all day parents are getting creative to find new ways to keep their kids entertained.

I spoke to Chris and Nicola, as well as their daughters Emma and Pippa to see how they were dealing as a family during this time.

It is also important to ensure children are well educated about Coronavirus, so as they can stay safe and happy.
