We are pleased to announce the launch of The Imagination Station, a brand new online platform aimed specifically at families with children under 11 who may be struggling for fun ideas in this third lockdown.
The platform, hosted on Facebook and our website, includes a weekly timetable of free activities, alongside resources and theatre shows from around the UK for all the family to watch. Through the Facebook group, we want to engage parents in the local area and get them sharing their tactics for home-schooling and entertainment, creating a much-needed community at a time of isolation.
The Imagination Station follows from our decision to make our weekly drama sessions for under 11s free until the end of term. On the new platform, our Director Joe Flavin said:
“We are painfully aware of the stresses and strains on both parents and teachers alike at the moment. We hope that having access to some fun, creative activity all in one place can help everyone who is experiencing the pressures of home-schooling to inject a burst of fun into the tedious school day and relieve some of that zoom fatigue that can creep in between maths and science.”
In the coming weeks, the platform will be regularly updated with fun ideas for things to do, alongside pre-recorded or live sessions, plus bite-size workshops from artists to break up the school day.
We would like to invite families and teaching staff to get involved in this new platform, offered completely free of charge and would welcome feedback to [email protected] for suggestions of activities that people would like to see or take part in.
