Additional Home Learning & Activities

BLM Resources from Newham


There are two main sources for home learning supported by the government:

150 new lessons every week! There are daily lessons for homeschooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more.

The homeschooling lessons have been created with teachers and other educational experts. They feature a mix of videos, animations, practice activities, quizzes and games

The Oak National Academy has been devised by teachers, for teachers and is backed by the Department for Education. It will provide over 180 one-hour lessons a week from teachers across different subjects and year groups, from early years up to year 10.

Learn@Home – Google Home Learning

A resource for families with children of different ages & areas of interest. As schools around the world close their buildings and families find themselves at home, we want to ensure that learning together continues. So we’re partnering with learning creators to bring parents & families resources and activities. These resources are not meant to replace homework assigned by teachers, but meant to complement that work.
