History and Heritage
As well as working with schools, The
Education People and Children's University staff are committed to
supporting children, young people and their families with home
learning and enrichment opportunities.
We appreciate that this is an
uncertain time for families but we hope that these home learning
resources help you enjoy your time with your children, even in
times of social distancing, self-isolation and possible
lockdown. Making happy memories, whilst learning during this
time, will be very important to all.
These links have been given to us by
a variety of partners including The Education People Advisors,
Children's University Managers, Learning Destinations, libraries
and partners such as Wheels of Time.
This section of our website will be
updated each day so do come back every now and then to see what's
new. Do click on the subject links on the left tab for
more specific resources available to schools and families.
