Community support during COVID-19: resources and ideas for supporting 0-18 year olds’ learning at home #BetterTogether📚💛👩🏼‍🏫👩🏼‍💻

**FEEL FREE TO SHARE – LIST IN COMMENTS IS PUBLIC** And so the world has begun homeschooling/digitally educating children en masse. If you need assistance with understanding something that has been assigned for your child or if you need more resources, please let me know. I am a teacher and will be more than happy to help answer questions. We’ve already set up a high school study group for students in our family and I’ve got stacks of learning resources/activity ideas for children aged 0-8 – I’m sure we can find a way to make it digital! (I’m also a dab hand at turning Disney films and BBC documentaries into relevant learning 😉) #BetterTogether📚💛👩🏼‍🏫👩🏼‍💻

Lockdown CPD: Child of Our Time – Turning 20 (BBC iPlayer)

In 1999, the groundbreaking BBC series Child of Our Time began filming a group of babies from the moment they were born, to explore what would shape their lives in the new millennium. Twenty years on, these children are fully grown and can reflect in their own words on growing up during a time of extraordinary social change. Drawing on thousands of hours of archive footage, this special focuses on three of the children (Eve, Jamie and Rhianna) exploring childhood as the first generation of 21st-century UK.

You can find this special episode on BBC iPlayer here.
