We're also announcing the first parts of our alternative programming, includingg Yoga with Natti from Fickle Friends, a Walt Disco Late Night Lockdown Extravaganza, and Jerry Paper's fantastic cat tricks.
Yes, cat tricks.
Homeschool is also raising much-needed awareness of the incredible work of frontline medical staff and volunteers here in the UK – encouraging donations to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal throughout the weekend.
