Is your child off school? Teachers and parents...Be prepared for SCHOOLING AT HOME. Guinea Pig Education are supporting schools where closures are taking place, by supporting parents to access educational resources from home. As teachers with many years experience, we have assembled some home learning packs that children will enjoy working through at home, independently or with an adult. There are work packs available for every age and year group. Age ranges are based on the ability of the average child in a year group. If your child is working at a higher or lower ability, in comparison to their age, you may need to go up or down a scheme. Simply, print each activity out on paper, using your home printer and your child can immediately start working. Our packs are very good value - they are heavily discounted and jam packed with work. At Guinea Pig Education, we want all children to have access to education, at this difficult time.
