Fun Kids is the UK's children's radio station and part of our mission, as well as entertaining kids across the country, is to help them learn. We're giving you free resources every week for you to share with your class. Every day we release a new mission that can help children at home learn more about a subject and test their knowledge.
With restrictions on going outdoors being lifted, this week's missions are all to do with staying safe while your pupils are out and about.
Children will find out why it's so dangerous to trespass on the railways with our newest educational series, Track Pack, and Charlie Crow will be helping us find out why you should never play in a quarry!
With a new mission each day kids will have plenty to do in this week's missions
