Welcome to the Learning at Home with your children pages, on these pages we provide links to some excellent resources not only to enable your children to continue learning but also to give you the skills you need to provide support.
There is also a section for free online tours and these are practical learning experiences for children that can help teach them whilst exploring museums, art galleries and famous places of interest around the world.
We would really like your feedback on these resources and also if you know of others then let us know.
