Teaching resources for home learning


Information Officer: Peter Cansell:               

& Mike Aylen, Chair.


Dear Parents and all those involved in primary education,


We all face unusual circumstances so we have to adapt and face the challenges of how we keep children actively learning in a home environment.

However out there in the real world we are all doing the best we can to get through this crisis without diminishing the lives of our children. Schools and families are all looking for ideas to help each other and we will do our best to help by building a library of linked resources on our website to support your efforts. There is some good advice and tips for parents working with their children at home from the National Education Union. Click the link. Also a refreshing look at how to support children at home, written by a headteacher, it is well worth a read courtesy of Twitter and a word of caution by the Professor of Play. If you want to explain social distancing to children we highly recommend this story written by Author, Julia Donaldson and illustrator, Axel Scheffler, creators of Gruffalo. 

When 'lock down' is eased and children start going back to school what are the mental barriers children, parents and teachers will have to cross? Matthew and Barry Carpenter write about a 'recovery curriculum' and the five 'levers to recovery'.

The nine oval buttons below will take you to a growing list of links which provides mainly freely available learning activities for children. These sites are not necessarily endorsed by NAPE.
