Mercadona opening hours
At the beginning of the state of alarm, Mercadona shortened the hours of its supermarkets. In the case of the Valencian chain, they have been opening from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., in addition to giving priority to shopping for the elderly, people with disabilities, people with reduced mobility, pregnant women, and the necessary companions.

El Corte Inglés opening hours
Supercor and Hipercor will open their doors from 10 am to 8 pm, from Monday to Saturday; and from 11 am to 8 pm, on Sundays and holidays.

In addition, El Corte Inglés has intensified its ‘online’ and telephone services. It has also added new phone lines available to citizens. The enabled number is 901 930 930.

Likewise, the Corte Inglés, in order to reward the great work being carried out by the health workers, has launched a special delivery service for this group.

Carrefour opening hours
Carrefour has established opening hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (previously it closed at 10:00 p.m.) and also controls the capacity of customers to avoid crowds.

Carrefour stores have masks, gloves and disinfectant gel.

Dia supermarket hours

The Dia chain supermarkets open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Lidl schedule

The Lidl chain has cut its opening hours by one hour, closing all hours at 20:00 instead of 21:00. Only 50 people can enter at a time and access is also limited to one person per household.

Consum supermarket opening hours

Consum also reduces its hours and opens its supermarkets from 10:00 to 20:00. It also guarantees the separation of one meter between customers with informative posters and signs on the ground that must be respected when queuing to pay. Consum also limits the number of articles of the same reference. Only six can be purchased per customer.

Aldi schedule

Like the rest of the supermarkets, Aldi also has special opening hours. Its stores are open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the chain recommends that its clients attend individually and respecting the maximum capacity of 50 people.

Google Arts & Culture’s collection includes the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York City, and literally hundreds of more places where you can gain knowledge about art, history, and science. This collection is especially good for students who are looking for ways to stay on top of their studies while schools are closed.

  1. Make your own games. Get a supply of  cards, children’s scissors, glue and anything else you may want to make some fun games. Old school games like Pin the Tail on the Donkey or Snakes and Ladders can all be easily made at home and will keep the children occupied for some time. (Note: You will probably have to help out with smaller children.)
  2. Cooking and baking. Once a week plan a cooking or baking day. Involve the kids in the process from the beginning — let them chose from a selection of recipes that you have ingredients for. If the child can read, get them to read from the recipe book. Step by step, help them to work through the instructions. Try to avoid the temptation of doing it yourself.
  3. Make an assault course. Old pieces of wood, boxes, buckets, garden chairs — anything that can be jumped over, under or around. Tell the children to time each other around the assault course. The course can be completed on a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or simply by running.
  4. Build a garden patch (if you have a garden that is). Dedicate a small patch in the garden to the kids. Plant flowers, herbs, lettuce — anything that grows quickly and gives them the satisfaction of having produced something. If your kids are small, just give them a spade, put on their old clothes, and let them loose. I read recently that gardeners are the happiest people alive. The explanation was that there is a form of bacteria in the soil that actually makes you happy. No harm giving it a go; we all want happy and relaxed children.
  5. Go camping. Build a tent indoors or outdoors with blankets and sheets. Once the tent is up, give them a torch and a picnic to take with them. I guarantee you won’t see them for hours.
  6. Go on picnics. You don’t have to go far to have a picnic — my children regularly ask for a picnic out the garden. I give them whatever I have in the fridge. You’d be amazed how once it is packed in a plastic container and eaten on a blanket on the grass, how much the atmosphere romanticizes the most boring of sandwiches.
  7. Have a treasure hunt. Make a treasure map with clues to find some treasure you have hidden somewhere in the garden. It doesn’t have to be expensive or big — any little treat will be exciting when it is found outdoors.
  8. Create a Corona virus Diary. Encourage the little ones to keep a Diary or scrapbook. They can take photos of special days and write about them. It will become a lovely memory book for them in the future — and also keep them busy for hours.
  9. Get jamming. Grab some musical instruments — things like bongos, shakers or tambourines, and get jamming. Get your kids to sing and dance along. (Alternatively, you can stick on Baby Shark, let your hair down, and dance on the furniture.)
  10. Make a movie. Get your phone and some Star Wars/Barbie figures. They can create it themselves and use Windows MovieMaker to edit it afterwards. They get to have creative fun and you can make it into a movie night when finished (any excuse for popcorn)
  11. Paint. One of the nicest ways to express your creativity is to use paint. Get large sheets of paper and lots of paint. Go mad and use your hands and feet — it’s liberating. To avoid any stress, prepare the area well and cover with plastic or newspaper. Have some water on hand to wash when you are finished.
  12. Get into jewellery making. Go to a bead shop and stock up on beads, wire and clasps, and get busy making your own jewellery. This activity can be done with the smallest of children, just be sure to get appropriate bead sizes for different age groups. The children will be so proud to wear the jewellery that they have made.
  13. Sketching. Go to a local park to sketch. They all had their own sketch pads and pencils, and they were encouraged to draw what they saw around them. They all had so much fun and want to make it a regular date.
  14. Take nature walks. Go on nature walks with a purpose. On the beach, collect shells and stones to later make a shell castle or shell and stone sculptures. In the Campo, get kids to seek out different sorts of bugs, plants or trees. Alternatively, give them a map to plot the route you are taking. By giving them control and a plan will ensure they don’t get bored too quickly.
  15. Have a clear out. Get the kids to clear out their rooms and have a go at selling the “crap” on-line. You could make a little bit of money . Pool all the money together and use it to pay for an outing for the whole family.
  16. Visit the library (If it is open). Use your local library regularly. In most libraries you can get more than books; you can get movies and music. Make a day out of it. Do some reading while you’re there instead of getting some books and heading home. Give your children a love of books — it is one of the best gifts you can give them
  17. Have a “Chill Day”. With all that activity planned, kids will also need some down time. Make sure you plan some days where you just chill, watch some movies, read some books, and take it easy.Image result for schools out

Our educational provision, offering the full British Curriculum (the International Primary Curriculum, GCSEs and ALevels) and Spanish equivalent (ESO and Bachillerato) in a happy and inclusive environment are unique in the area; whilst our cutting-edge learning technology and state of the art performing arts and sports facilities are some of the factors that set us apart from the other Schools.
