There have been a wealth of free printable companies are sharing to help parents keep children entertained and busy during this lockdown.
The level of provision schools are providing for parents seems to vary. I’ve seen on social media that some schools are providing regular materials for parents to print at home whilst others haven’t provided anything since the first week of being off.
This week marks Witsun half-term so many of schools will be closed and won’t be sending out activities to support learning at home.
With this in mind, I’ve scoured the internet for you and found free printables, all aimed at Primary School Children. The list below is in no particular order.
