Schools are in partial shutdown and parents and carers are home schooling. The resources on these pages provide opportunities to learn about some of the exciting developments, issues and opportunities in the Tees Valley. Research strongly suggests that children who have a wider understanding of their local area, particularly businesses and opportunities that exist for them, do better at school and earn more in later life. These resources combine local awareness raising with activities and challenges to engage pupils across a wide age range. Come back every day for more resources and click on the links below each week to access new activities three times a week.
