As we begin half term, here is a list of ideas put together by Netgem TV to make your family time watching TV much more worthwhile.
PRESCHOOLERS – GET THEM TO JOIN THE BOOK CLUB BY TUNING INTO READING RAINBOW

INVITE THEM TO START EXPLORING THE UNIVERSE WITH CLOUDBABIES
Cloudbabies is an adorable animated series about four enchanting, childlike characters, whose job it is to look after the sky and their Sky Friends. They live together in a house on a big fluffy cloud and every morning they jump on their Skyhorsies and begin their day’s work of looking after the sky.
Primary – TRAVEL TO A SAFARI AND FORGET ABOUT THE LOCKDOWN WITH ANDY’S SAFARI ADVENTURES
