Summer Learning Activities
The summer holidays are here, and we sometimes struggle to find things to do to entertain the children, most things cost the earth!
The National Trust have compiled a list of things to do before you turn 11 ¾.
Let's get the children outside in their environment, having fun and learning through play and adventure.
Get your kids closer to nature with ‘50 things to do before you’re 11¾’. There’s plenty of outdoor activities to do all year round, from watching the sunset to creating some wild art. Many can be done at home and in your garden.
This completely FREE online gaming platform is great for learning about geography topics. There are interactive activities on continents, capitals, flags, regions, islands, rivers... the list is endless.
There's no subscription or free trial, just go to the website and play!

Statement of Intent
Our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Children investigate a range of places – both in Britain and abroad – to help develop their knowledge and understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about their local area of Blackburn so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes our local area unique and special. We also develop the children’s ability to apply geographical skills to enable them to confidently communicate their findings and geographical understanding to a range of audiences.
