If you are shortly taking the children on an outing you may be interested in a new activity booklet from English Heritage called On the Go!
The booklet contains 18 pages of curriculum-based activities, games and puzzles to keep children occupied during journeys and encourage them to take an interest in the passing environment. The games vary from simple letter and number games and colour and sound searches to suggestions for poetry writing and storytelling for older children.
