1. Write a letter to a friend.
This one can be really fun, especially if your child is away from friends at boarding school. Writing to them letting them know what they’ve been up to and finding out how they are is a great way to stay in touch with friends they won’t see until next term – but it is also an excellent way to keep practicing spelling, writing and communication skills they’ve built up.
3. Reading list.
Okay… it doesn’t have to be a list but finding some books to get them through the summer will definitely exercise their brain. Maybe they have a topic from school that they want to widen their knowledge on or have a specific series of books by a fictional author they’ve been dying to get their teeth into. Whatever it is, come rain or sunshine there is always time to pick up a good book and let their brain do some exploring.

5. Educational Entertainment.
Your family want to just relax right? No problem, while we hope you all enjoy the glorious summer weather, when you just need some time to relax in doors in front of the television there are always educational programmes on TV for your child(ren) to watch. They can also search for educational videos on YouTube or read books and search the internet. It is recommended to have breaks from screens regularly – so do enjoy some fresh air also!
