Activity Ideas During School Closure

Some ideas, suggestions and useful information to assist you while The Redway School is closed. Although activities have been split into Redway curriculum areas, please note that much of what we do at The Redway is cross-curricular and therefore you will find most activities cover most areas.

Files marked [New] have been added within the last two days. Files marked [Recent] within the last seven days. As there is a practical limit to the number we can store on one page, older activies will be moved to the Closure Activities Archive page.
