You will need to watch the lesson just as you would at school. To help you interact with it you will need a whiteboard and pen OR a piece of paper and a pencil/pen.

It is important that you keep yourself fit and healthy so we have shared with you a number of links which you could choose from to help you do this.
Alternatively, you might want to go out in your garden and play basketball, or football with your family, or you could even go for a long walk or bike ride with an adult. Just do something to get yourself moving.
