Learning From Home

Welcome to our Learning from home resource hub. Click the link below:

RESOURCE HUB

Please note that resources found through clicking the above link are generic and are not age or learning style specific. Your child’s individual class teacher will be in contact with you and will share links to specific resources, activities and ideas most relevant to your child.

We are not setting any expectation on families to complete a certain amount of work with their children. We appreciate that families will be under significant pressures during the enforced national school closure. The resources are designed as a guide to activities for parents, carers and pupils to access as they wish. If you have any specific questions about activities or ideas for your child please get in touch with your class teacher.

The resource hub will be updated weekly, so do check back to see what has been added.

We now have a YouTube channel with content on ideas to do at home. Subscribe to the channel to be notified when new content is added: Brookfields YouTube
