Since Friday 20th March, most students have been at home, learning remotely due to the Covid-19 school closures. Whilst days at school are shaped by a regular timetable, we know that it can be challenging to find some structure when learning from home.

At Hopscotch, we want to help! We’ve pulled together a suggested “learning from home” timetable to help children aged 4-14 (and parents!) manage their study time. We have also included some of our favourite resources, created by teachers or education specialists, to support pupils in this challenging time.

Each week we'll be posting a blog, direct from a teacher on the front line, about their experience and challenges they're facing following school closures. The first in the series is from a secondary science teacher in the North East.

Here at Hopscotch we love running regular HopMeet sessions, where a member of the team shares something interesting with the rest of us. This week, our intern Rosie shared her insight into understanding how motivation can successfully influence behaviour change.

Today's World Mental Health Day brings to light numerous news stories on the state of our young people’s mental health and reveals how much more needs to be done to combat the issue.

As technology continues to advance, it is becoming more and more integrated into how young people learn, create and discover themselves. To find out more about these developments, and their impact on education, in January some colleagues and I headed to Bett; the world’s biggest education technology event. Bett brings together educators, brands, media and anyone with an interest in the future of education under one (very large) roof at ExCel London.
