This week we hosted a virtual Health-related Play Box Workshop with children from the Primary 1b class at Battlefield Primary School in Glasgow. The workshop was packed full of fun, health-related, and educational play activities and, despite the barriers caused by lockdown restrictions, demonstrated how much children are adaptable and enjoy learning through play.
