We're an edtech company at heart, but we're also aware that too much screen time can have a negative effect on children's well-being. Our previous non-screen activities proved really popular. With that in mind, we've created 25 more, best of all they support writing at home... Or wherever you are learning!

Many parents find it difficult to know the best way to support their child’s literacy learning, but it's not as difficult as it seems. As long as you can encourage them to form good reading and writing habits, it will make a big difference in your child’s attitude to learning. Choosing from these activities will help! We hope you find these ideas useful to incorporate into your home learning plan.
