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.

In light of the global Covid-19 pandemic, the UK government announced that from Friday 20th March, all schools in England, Scotland and Wales would close until further notice, with schools in Northern Ireland having already closed their doors.  Today we are sharing around up of news relevant to the current crisis, inspiration for educators and parents looking to support their young people.

Findings from research with learners regarding the period product scheme, commissioned by the Department for Education and conducted by Hopscotch, has gone live!

We’re delighted to have worked with the RNLI, supporting its mission to halve drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. We’ve developed an impactful set of behaviour change resources highlighting the importance of making safe decisions around bodies of water.
