History Van at Home Activities

With schools currently closed due to Covid-19, lots of you will be helping children learn from home. With this in mind I am issuing a weekly* newsletter, each with a different historical theme, filled with ideas of activities that can be done at home. *As of Monday 1st June the newsletter will be fortnightly as we see a gradual return of children to their schools.

How do I sign up for the newsletter?

You can sign up by clicking on this link and inputting your email address. Activities, in your inbox, ready for when you want to use them.
