We have launched Blue Peter on YouTube at CBBC and we were wondering if your pupils and parents would be interested in this, for entertainment outside of home-schooling hours now we’re in lockdown.

 

Blue Peter is the longest running kids TV show in the world and we are uploading videos to it that are suitable for 5-11 year olds. We have world record breaking challenges, arts and crafts, environmental videos, cooking and baking how tos, inspirational films, gaming, celebrity appearances, dance routines and music performances. We also feature ways of getting a Blue Peter badge, behind the scenes footage and extra content about our incredible presenters Adam, Lindsey, Mwaksy, Richie and Henry the Blue Peter dog.

 

If you think your pupils would be interested in this, please do send this out to your parents and ask them to subscribe to https://www.youtube.com/bluepeter - (it’s obviously completely free to subscribe!) and don’t forget to watch the live programme on CBBC at 5.00pm every week, or on BBC iPlayer.

 

Thanks so much for your time,

The Blue Peter Team!

Northumberland County Council continues to update learning resources during the Covid-19 pandemic:
 
This might be useful either in school or as a resource for home schooling. It is a scheme run by the pdsa trying to educate children in animal welfare needs.
 
This is a link to the lego website, if you sign up they send 4 magazines a year out!
 

Saving lives through education.

This public access version of StayWise brings together many educational resources from the emergency services and voluntary safety organisations so you can easily find trusted resources to help with home schooling linked to age groups, themes and curriculum areas. We hope this helps to bring learning to life, in a fun way, in these difficult times.
