London Learning at Home
The London Curriculum has reached out across the city to bring together free learning and cultural offers that children can access from home. We want to support families, teachers and nurseries during this challenging time and ensure that young Londoners still feel connected to the incredible people, places and culture of their city. We have focussed on London-specific offers, which add to the national list of online education resources published by the Department for Education.
You can search by age range, subject, key stage and organisation to find what you need. We know this can be a busy time, so we also asked organisations to estimate the level of adult supervision required:
• Low: child-led activity
• Medium: some adult input needed
• High: adult-led activity
Many of the organisations listed have a wealth of educational expertise, but as with any provision, it is at your discretion to decide whether a resource is suitable for your children/class.
