Home Learning Ideas

Please check content before allowing access to any online material.

Please ensure that children are supervised when using the Internet.

We cannot be responsible for any pop-ups or advertising that may come onto your home devices.

In the event of school closure, please also regularly check the individual Class Pages for updates and further class-specific work that will be posted by the teachers (much in the same way that homework is shared at present).

The following links are for general support with distance learning, and cover many different subjects:

  • The School Run
    A website for parents supporting children's learning at home

  • Khan Academy
    Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it's mostly common material.

  • BBC Learning
    This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.

  • Futurelearn
    Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).

  • Seneca
    For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher level material.

  • Openlearn
    Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.

  • Ted Ed
    All sorts of engaging educational videos

  • Duolingo
    Learn languages for free. Web or app.

  • Twinkl
    This is more for printouts, and usually at a fee, but they are offering a month of free access to parents in the event of school closures.
