She's at home with her Corrie star siblings Isabella and William

Emmerdale's April, Amelia Flanagan, appears to be having fun being at home with her soap star sister and brother Isabella and William during the coronavirus pandemic.

The three siblings, who star in the ITV shows Coronation Street and Emmerdale, are currently off school and are being homeschooled by their mum, Rachel.

Advice for homeschooling during coronavirus crisis

Posting a picture of the three children to her Instagram, Rachel wrote: "Right time to figure this homeschooling out! If anyone told us we'd be adapting to teach our kids from home I'm pretty sure we'd all have laughed right? Any tips?

"Anyone already homeschool who can give advice? Happy to post what I've tried to do every few days if it will help anyone on here."

Fans rushed to wish them all well and offer tips on home schooling.

One wrote: "I've been homeschooled for the last few years. If I could give one tip it is when homeschooling you get more learned in two hours than in a normal six hour day. You don't do it like a normal school day."

A second commented: "Stay safe."

Another added: "Beautiful photo."

Rachel posted another picture today (Monday, March 23) of all three children having a PE lesson.

She wrote: "Monday ready @thebodycoach let's go! #pe #homeschool #allinthistogether."

A lot of parents and soap stars are homeschooling their children as it was announced last week that schools in the UK will be shut for the foreseeable future.

Isabella and William's Corrie co-star Samia Longchambon is homeschooling her two children Freya and Yves.

Amelia's Emmerdale co-star Harvey Rogerson, who is currently in self-isolation, is also being homeschooled.
