Join us and Helen Sketon each weekday for our new run of features aimed at helping parents’, grandparents and carers who are home schooling children.
Starting on Monday 22nd February here on Red Kite Radio, Helen Skelton will host the series which will be aired each weekday at 9:15; 1:15 and 5:15
Helen, formerly a Blue Peter presenter and now a presenter on Country File, will be joined by a wide range of guests, including CBeebies presenter Maddie Moate, celebrity life coach Jill Ritchie, Neil Jones from Strictly, headteacher Sally Madison and Laura Bacon from The Wildlife Trust. They’ll be looking at the best ways to keep children engaged in schoolwork – keeping them active whilst also managing parents’ and grandparents’ own mental health at this difficult time.
So, if you’ve got children schooling at home or even a hyperactive partner, join us from Monday 22nd at 9:15
