What a strange week it has been. For many, this will have been the first full week of having kids at home, of working remotely alone or alongside a spouse or housemates and of increased isolation measures. It's an uncertain and worrying time for many of us. One of the lovely things to come out of this coronavirus nightmare is the generosity of individuals sharing content online to keep us going. We've rounded up some of the brilliant things we've seen shared online that we hope you'll enjoy. Whether you’re looking for an interesting article, something to entertain your kids or a few freebies, we’ve got your back.
