Jamie’s Farm brings you Lessons from the Farm
With the school holidays approaching, you might be looking for ideas to keep your children entertained and engaged at home. We’ve partnered with the online classroom, Oak National Academy, to create Oak Activity Club – a range of fun and educational activities for you to take part in as a family or for children to enjoy on their own.
Oak Activity Club is completely free and is bursting with activities. Backed by the Government, Oak National Academy provides high-quality lessons and online resources in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Lessons from the Farm offers children a framework for how they can make decisions for themselves to help them thrive in lockdown and beyond. From feeding the animals to shearing the lambs, the activities will bring the countryside to young people around the country wherever they happen to be.
Sessions are now available and are framed around:
- Constructing a healthy routine
- Connecting with good people
- Challenging yourself to do something different and something hard
- Be Creative and try new things
- Celebrating the good that you’ve achieved
Matt Hood, Principal of Oak National Academy, said:
“When we set up Oak we wanted to offer students as wide a range of subjects as possible to study. But as we approach half-term we want to support families in the fantastic job they’ve been doing to keep their children entertained, healthy and learning. The range of activities are brilliant and will mean they can enjoy their week off school work with fun and engaging sessions that will also provide structure.
We are very grateful to all our partners for creating such fantastic resources, which we hope will be enjoyed by children up and down the country.”
We hope you enjoy our sessions!
