Secondary home learning resources

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.

English

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.
