30 Days of Fun in the Garden This April

With the world a very unsettling place at the moment, we wanted to offer people something fun, free and full of positivity. At a time when we’re all looking a little anxiously towards the future, if instead we look outside the window we can see that spring has well and truly sprung – so let’s make the most of it. The wonderful Tamsin Westhorpe, author of Diary of a Modern Country Gardener, has written this 30-day challenge to gardening activities you can share with children this April. Whether you have a huge country garden or a tiny town plot, or perhaps just a sunny windowsill, this diary of things to keep your hands and minds busy is the perfect distraction. The projects are all low-cost and don’t require any special skills or equipment – you can improvise with whatever you have to hand.

 We have had a request for our students to draw pictures for residents at one of our local care homes as they are no longer able to receive visitors and need cheering up - please ask your brothers and sisters to help too!

 

 

 Widgit are offering free access to symbols - they have lots of ready made resources that you may find useful. Go to www.widgitonline.com/offer and enter code WIDGIT30

 

 

We all know that the next few weeks are going to be challenging so we have created some resources for you to share with your children and parents to help them have fun with music and continue to develop their skills.
