www.mangahigh.com (has been made free for the next few weeks). Excellent website linked to the Irish curriculum.
For ARTS AND CRAFTS, some excellent go-to sites include:
If the great outdoors (or a back garden) is an option, the RSPB has lots of nature games and activities to do inside and outside. And here are ideas to ‘give nature a home in your garden’.
Another way of travelling while confined is through webcams. Find lots here. Invite each kid to pick a destination and look at the webcam in that place. They can spend some time imagining they are there. (What time is it? What’s the weather like? What are they doing? What is going on? How do they feel?) Then they can design and write a postcard to answer these questions.
