School is well and truly out for the Summer and we're a week or two into the extended holiday with our little lovely ones. The Summer holidays seems to send parents one of two ways; either counting down the days until the new term starts, or (like me) desperately trying to fill as much fun in as possible and dreading the return of September.
Amongst all the wonderful and unstructured learning through play activities which dominate most of the holidays, there are plenty of opportunities to ensure our children are still learning away from the classroom without homework to prompt them. And even the best intentioned mother has to give a little bit of televisual cool-down time during frantic moments.
Don't despair, it doesn't have to necessarily turn into a cartoon-fest, Netflix have a huge array of programmes aimed at helping our children learn.
