Over at the Ferdinand’s, Kate was taking homeschooling very seriously, first of all conducting an exercise session for Tate, 11, Lorenz, 13, and Tia, eight, with Rio in their vast garden.

She then told Rio off for disappearing and ‘working’ instead of helping her teach the kids, with Rio responding: “What are you, a teacher?”

Kate hit back: “Yes I am! Teaching your children!”

Former Saturdays singer Una Healy posted a picture of her children Tadhg, five, and Aofie, eight, practicing their handwriting.

“And so it begins! best of luck to everyone in the same boat this morning,” Una wrote.

Una also posted a cute video of her son running around garden to get some fresh air.

Celebrities including Fearne Cotton, Rochelle Humes and Coleen Rooney also joined in with the online PE session hosted by The Body Coach Joe Wicks.

Fearne shared a picture of her children, four year-old Honey and Rex, seven, working out with Joe this morning (March 23), before going on to teach art and gardening.

She revealed that she is getting Rex to pick a subject out of a pot every day for them to focus on.

Kimberley shared posts showing her sons Bobby, five, and Cole, three, running around in the garden as well as taking part in the PE session.

Meanwhile, Coleen Rooney had her hands full with all four of her sons Kai, 10, Klay, six, Kit, four, and Cass, two, showing off their moves in the Rooney’s front room.

Joe will be hosting his PE sessions daily but parents will still have to come up with ideas to keep their kids entertained the rest of the time.

And with Boris Johnson expected to announce even tougher restrictions to ensure social distancing, parents will be missing schools and the teachers who usually put the hard work in more and more!
