The Easter holidays typically come as a welcome break for pupils, but with limited half term activities on offer due to coronavirus restrictions, students from Sandringham School have taken matters into their own hands to help primary school children.
Since launching their primary school activity packs in February, Tenacity - a team of 26 entrepreneurs from Year 12 taking part in the Young Enterprise Company Programme - has been working hard to create more resources for primary school children to learn with and enjoy.
Conscious of the effects that Covid restrictions have had on students' ability to learn and have fun, the group have come together to solve this problem with online resources.
Since the start of their business, the team was focused on supporting parents with the challenging task of home-teaching by developing an affordable and entertaining online product.
Yesterday (March 31), Tenacity launched three new activity packs, covering a range of subjects and costing £1.99 each. Due to popular demand, the team will also be releasing the ‘Tenacity Full Edition', which includes all of the activities from previous packs for £3.99.
Alongside the launch of their activity packs, Tenacity is also running an exciting competition for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils over the Easter Holidays, to encourage their creativity and expand their vocabulary.
