Lockdown Learning – home page

What is this all about?

My name is Lizzy and I have been a qualified Primary School Teacher for 10 years and I am also a mum to two young children. I have a passion for learning through play, and have set up Lockdown Learning to help parents who have children aged between 2 and 4 years old.

I am sharing the activities that I am setting up for my 2 and a half year old daughter. I will be updating the website with more ideas every Sunday evening, ready for you to use for the following week.

No need to buy lots of new resources, as we use items that you will already have in your home. Below are a range of play-based activities, which are divided into different areas. So if you could do with a bank of ideas, then please read on!

Latest Update 26/07/20 – Road Transport

Please note, as lockdown has now eased I will be pausing the updates on Lockdown Learning for a while. If you would like to get in touch, please email me on: lockdownlearning1@gmail.com. I have loved sharing our play-based learning ideas with you all, and it gave me a positive project to do during lockdown. Thank you all for your emails and sharing your photos of the Lockdown Learning activities taking place in your homes! I will be continuing to update on Lockdown Learning’s Instagram and Facebook pages, so please clink on the links above to follow.
