Here are some suggestions for all members of the family to learn together and have fun at the same time.
The Joy of Moving - Winter Games
In partnership with Oldham Athletic Community Trust, we are joining in with The Joy of Moving - Winter Games.
This pack has been designed for all the family to have fun. There are lots of different games to get everyone involved whilst you are at home!
All you need to play is a small space, some willing participants and a small amount of equipment which can be made from everyday household items!
Share photographs of your challenges on social media and add @officalOACT in the Tweet so they can help celebrate your success.
Oldham Art Gallery
Art & Craft videos from Gallery Oldham which you may like to try at home.
Grammar activities (with answers) - even though the activities link to specific year groups, they can be used by different year groups as revision activities or challenges.
