THINGS TO DO IF YOU ARE STUCK AT HOME
Every child has been given an exercise book and a pencil as part of our ‘Things to do if you are Stuck at Home’ plans.
You might like to write about some of the ideas you try in your book, and share them with us when you are back in school. We’d love to hear about them.
Please find below a mixture of on screen and importantly off screen activities.
How about trying some of these great non-screen activities recommended by @HeyPobble?
Maybe once you’ve tried all of these, you could think up another non-screen activity for another family to try?
As numerous theatrical institutions across the world have opened up their archives in response to increasing lockdown restrictions, all eyes have remained on one organisation: the National Theatre in London, which has the greatest archive of cinema-quality recordings of stage plays of any theatre on the planet, thanks to its formidable NT Live programme. It’s designed to beam productions from the NT into cinemas across the country, but there are of course no cinemas in operation at present. So the NT is switching to its YouTube channel. From April 2, under the banner of National Theatre at Home, every Thursday (7pm GMT/2pm EST) will see a new National Theatre play released – free to watch for one week – along with bonus content including cast and creative Q&As and post-stream talks.
There’s a definite emphasis on family-friendly good cheer for the line-up so far, which kicks off with a big hitter: Richard Bean’s beloved farce ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’, starring a pre-chat-show-days James Corden. Over the next few weeks you can expect a string of family-friendly titles, though naturally there will be those hoping for some of the real NT Live blockbusters, notably ‘Hamlet’ and ‘Frankenstein’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch and ‘Coriolanus’ starring Tom Hiddleston.
The initial programme is:
April 2 ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ by Richard Bean, starring James Corden. Read a review.
April 9 ‘Jane Eyre’, adapted by Sally Cookson. Read a review.
April 16 ‘Treasure Island’, adapted by Bryony Lavery. Read a review.
April 23 ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare, starring Tamsin Greig. Read a review.
Additionally, the National Theatre will be rolling out National Theatre Collection study resources to pupils now learning at home.

PECT has created a lot of non-screen activities for children to complete to better understand the world around them, particularly promoting looking after our local environment. They say:
Our new Nature’s School resource is all about bringing families together to enjoy, appreciate and protect their time together. By doing so it can have a positive effect on physical and mental health and ultimately our natural environment as well.
Our environment is sometimes an unexplored natural resource, often overlooked for its wealth of possibilities, and not always appreciated or looked after as it should be! Take this time to turn that around and discover natural wonders, learn from Nature’s School and in return protect it for future generations.
Wildlife watch have created a multitude of non-screen activities to complete at home.
