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.

With students at home for the time being, it’s a fantastic opportunity for them to push the boundaries of creative learning. But creativity isn’t resigned to the arts - there’s room for spark and flair within STEM subjects too. To help with this, we’ve rounded up some of the most innovative and exciting free resources for use at home, so that students can have fun whilst learning.

On a misty morning last week, Hopscotch Consulting brought together over 40 professionals from blue chip companies, leading NGOs and government departments to discuss the importance of supporting the education sector. From the 38th floor of the Gherkin, guests heard from programme leaders including Kirstie Mackey, Managing Director, Citizenship & Consumer Affairs, Barclays UK, Anna Russell, CSR Director at Bupa and Holly Matthewson, Talent Lead at Vodafone UK, about the ground-breaking work that they are currently delivering in the space 

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.

We are working on a project to produce a Netflix-style digital library with a wide variety of workout videos that will be mainly used in PE lessons by girls aged 13-16 who are disengaged from the traditional PE offer. We're looking to appoint a partner who will work with us from the outset to ensure the platform is built on insight, as well as establishing the evaluation framework and revisiting this to assess impact.
