Historic Aviation homeschooling help!

Are you trying to teach young children at home while juggling work? We feel your pain! That's why we've put together a few little historic aviation tasks to keep the kids occupied while you try to get some work done...

If you're sat at home, trying to teach your children while attempting to do your job at the same time, we just want to say one thing: we know how challenging it is! Trying to help them with their work, while simultaneously sorting endless snacks and trying to somehow do your own job while you're at it, is pretty overwhelming. But fear not: Key.Aero is here to help!

If your children need some work that's a bit different, or if they're not being set enough, or if they're barely being set anything at all, then here are some tasks they can do to keep them occupied for a bit while you crack on with some work. Centred around historic aviation, the tasks are loosely aimed at Key Stage 2 children, but would probably be best for Years 3 and 4 (or even some switched-on Years 2s!). 

We'll be posting some more historic aviation homeschooling next week, so keep your eyes peeled. 

Good luck!
