Activity Packs (August 2020)

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have put together a range of free online resources and downloadable activities for adults and children to enjoy at home or on a walk (tours). More activities will be added regularly, for example, educational worksheets, jigsaws, stories, quizzes and craft activities. We hope you enjoy them!
