Cornavirus Kent: National Marine Aquarium shows live shark and turtle feed
Happy hump day. Three days down and two to go, before our first week of home schooling is complete.
And like most parents across the county I'm sure, I drift between feeling like this is manageable to wondering how on earth I can keep a six year-old and nine year-old going at home for weeks let alone months on end.
That said, thanks to a steady stream of school work and a raft of online offerings including PE with Joe Wicks at 9am or a story with David Walliams at 11am - we're finding a rough weekday routine to get us going which I think we're all grateful for.
Amongst our online viewing today was the National Marine Aquarium's live broadcast of its turtle and shark feed this morning.
The Plymouth based attraction, which is currently closed to the public, is promising one video a week from staff who remain on site to take care of the marine life.
Shown via the Aquarium's facebook page, the feeding was filmed live and staff are also able to answer questions which children can post in the comments at the bottom of the footage.
It was interesting and informative and as something that isn't coming up every day, made for a nice change. All videos are uploaded to You Tube to catch up on if you don't tune in at the time.
I also saw someone recommend Edinburgh Zoo's live cameras, if you've tried those, or any other animal cams out, do please drop me an email and let me know of the best ones?
Other successes today also include some garden obstacle courses, in which the kids set out the challenges and then timed each other with a stop watch, which followed on nicely from yesterday's online football challenges and we finally got round to making some rainbow art for our front windows.
