I used to work as a teacher - this looks a fascinating resource for children to access with some great photos and facts.

Fab lockdown learning! I used several of the resources from your e-Learning Hub with my kids (7 & 8) during lockdown. They really enjoyed them as they felt a bit more fun than the online learning set by school and were about real-life things like food and clothes that they could relate to. Thanks M&S!
