P = Suitable for primary          S = Suitable for secondary

Don’t worry! We are not expecting you to teach lessons but thought you may find these activities useful in offering a bit of structure. Baking a cake, doing some decorating, washing the dog, drawing, watching a documentary, gardening, playing games together or even having some down time all have value too!
