Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service this year. Exciting celebrations are going on around the country and schools are getting involved with the children too. However, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with your children; this could be with super fun classes on Outschool.
We recently discovered Outschool and wish we’d found out about it sooner. Outschool is an online platform, where children can take part in all kinds of classes delivered via Zoom. Classes come from teachers around the world, at various times throughout the day. This means that you’re able to find a class that suits your family and the time zone you are in.
Outschool has a fantastic search option, which makes it so easy to find the kind of class your child wants to take part in. You can narrow down your options by days, times, and ages or you can even search for specific words or ideas. This will save you lots of time as you’ll be able to find a suitable class quickly and with ease.
Last month, we shared some of the fun classes that Erin took part in, such as Sing Along with Frozen and learning about the 7 continents. With the Platinum Jubilee celebrations just around the corner, I wanted to share some ideas for great classes that you could take part in on Outschool.
Outschool isn’t just about sitting in front of a computer or tablet and listening to someone talk. So many of the classes are interactive and ensure the children taking part can get stuck in with the topic.
Craft classes are such a fun idea. I’m not the most creative of people so I struggle to think of craft ideas for Erin. By signing Erin up for a craft class, we’re given a list of things we’ll need beforehand and an idea of what the crafts are going to be. Something I find about Outschool is that the classes are usually so well prepared and parents and children are given all the information they need ahead of time.
Platinum Jubilee themed crafts include things like making bunting, designing a crown or coming up with a great tea party menu!

Once you start using Outschool you’ll soon get used to the kinds of classes your child likes and you can go back to see if they cover other topics. Erin took part in a Little Explorers class before and loved it. Outschool classes will allow your children to explore London via Zoom, looking at places such as Buckingham Palace, London Bridge and the Queen’s Guard, which is perfect for the Jubilee celebrations.

Learn about history
Platinum Jubilee themed classes don’t necessarily need to be about the Queen. Instead, you might want to go for a bit of a broader topic such as the UK, London or a certain point in history. There are plenty of amazing classes about the UK and London on Outschool and by using the search function, you’ll be able to find something that your child will be interested in.
You can find a couple of ideas for classes focusing on the UK’s history below, aimed at a range of different ages.
Tales of the British Isles – UK Myths, Legends, Folklore, Customs
History Detectives! the Great Fire of London
Castles, Knights and Medieval Life – The History of the British Isles
