Learning From Home - CHILDREN

Start with your home learning packs we've sent home :)

The key to home learning is to find your structure and the right balance. Too much and it won't be enjoyable - not enough and you will get bored and stop learning. Just to help with the planning here's a timetable you may find useful, but remember it's about chatting to parents and getting the balance right.

You can also explore all subjects in the national curriculum and track down challenges appropriate to you by visiting this great BBC learning website:

MY HOME IS MY MUSEUM:

When you visit museums and galleries, you learn more from their wonderful exhibitions and collections, but while they're not open for visits they wondered whether we could learn about you instead?

Imagine creating your own exhibition or gallery of artworks inspired by you! What would you like people to know about you? What are the important things in your home that are close to your heart? Who might you paint a picture of? Toys, special outfits, holiday souvenirs and much-loved teddy bears are some of the many things you might wish to include as objects are artworks.
