Schools have been working relentlessly hard and creatively to promote home learning during this time of closure. Many have developed online activities and the use of portals, zoom and apps, such as ‘MyHomework’.
To support parents and pupils, we are putting together resources and ideas for subjects including literacy and mathematics. These focus on key stage 3 and key stage 4 and will be updated every one to two weeks.
Our themed home learning topics complement activities that have been set by schools. These may be of help particularly if you are trying to manage the needs of several children or have limited access to the internet.
These resources have been produced to help learners develop a love of reading, through using certain strategies to help make reading easier and purposeful. Parents and carers can support their children through practising these strategies and making reading a shared experience.
These resources are about writing for pleasure. One way to record memories is by writing a diary. It can also be a personal and safe space to express thoughts and feelings.
These resources are designed to show how mathematics can be used to solve problems and analyse data in situations far beyond the classroom. You can also view online resources for National Numeracy Day.
