With home schooling taking its toll, the idea of the half term approaching and keeping the younger members of the family occupied, might also be filling you with dread! We’d normally be looking forward to seeing families in the club and arranging fun-filled days out in London but with the current national lockdown this won’t be possible. So, I have put together some suggestions of how to keep some of our youngest ‘Members’ entertained for the lockdown half term and by the way, some big kids might like them too!
SEA LIFE London Aquarium Holding one of Europe's biggest collections of global marine life, the Sea Life Centre have created some great live streams, it’s a wonderful way to meet some of the 7,000 sea creatures that call this aquarium home. https://www.facebook.com/watch/SEALIFELondonAquarium/
London Museums & Galleries
Museum of London With fun print outs and the creation of arts and crafts, this is a fun way for young historians to learn about the city’s history. As you explore, you will see there are activities for all age groups. https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/families/fun-home
London Symphony Orchestra: Space … but not as we know it A free on-line concert suitable for school and family groups that caters for 7 to 12 year olds. Presenter Rachel Leach explores the separation of sounds, how music travels around an orchestra in this one-hour family concert with the London Symphony Orchestra. https://lso.co.uk/whats-on/alwaysplaying/digitalactivities/space.html
I hope these suggestions ease the half term strain. When we can all return to the club I can book London trips out for you and the family and remember, the Farmers Club “Teddy in Town” is looking forward to coming with you on your day trip adventures.
