We’re buzzing for the start of the safe return of children’s activities. Participating in organised activities offers families many health and wellbeing benefits, whilst also supporting the social, emotional, physical and mental development of your child. We have all missed our favourite activities during lockdown. It’s only natural that you might feel a little nervous getting out and about, or a bit unsure of which activities might be best for your child at this time. To give you a little inspiration, we’ve put together a selection of classes available across the UK.

MagiKats Maths & English

Attending a MagiKats workshop is a fun and interactive experience. Even with social distancing restrictions, our highly trained and experienced mentors ensure every child has individual attention and the opportunity to either consolidate a skill or learn something new, every time they come to us.

After such disruption to schooling, every child is going to need an individual approach to get them back on track with their education. Any gaps in learning will take some time to appear, but getting back into the rhythm of learning, back to good study habits, will help minimise any further problems. Extended periods working online has been detrimental to skills such as writing, so the traditional learning style used at MagiKats has never been more important.

Jiggy Wrigglers

There has been a lot of attention regarding how groups such as Jiggy Wrigglers are so important to help with feelings of isolation and loneliness. “As well as the interaction for parents, babies and toddlers have missed out on many experiences because of lockdown,” says Katie Clunn, Managing Director of Jiggy Wrigglers. “We felt that it was important to open up face to face classes as soon as we were given the go-ahead to bring back some much-needed interaction for families. I’m so proud of all of our franchisees who have really gone the extra mile and set up outside sessions in their communities to get children and their parents smiling again.”
