Family activity and wellbeing support

Finding time to support each other and do things together will be invaluable for all the family. The importance of positive, face-to-face interactions cannot be underestimated.

Things that you might consider doing as a family…

  • Read together and discuss what you are reading (see reading section)
  • Support your child with a Personal Interest Project - maybe even do your own!
  • Talk with your child about their academic work.
  • Exercise together! (see exercise section)
  • Write quizzes together and do them as a family (your son will show you how to make a kahoot!) 
  • Play a board game together (chat as you do it - it isn’t about the board game...)
  • Play a computer game together (don’t worry if you aren’t any good at computer games - just do it together and be ready to laugh at yourself!)
  • Cook together! Our Food & Nutrition team have put together a whole batch of resources- try a breakfast or a dinner, or do a snack and some baking… see our recipes below. These are tried and tested with students across KS3 and KS4!
