WWT home learning hub

With another lockdown in full swing, we know how hard teachers are working to provide high-quality remote learning whilst retaining an element of fun. We hope that our home learning hub could be of help, having been designed to support both teachers and parents with key parts of the science and geography curriculum. Why not take a look and see whether you could incorporate some elements into your home learning schedule?

On the hub, you will find a full learning programme, covering all science and geography topics relating to nature and wildlife at KS1 and KS2. There is also a range of shorter fun activities and quizzes that can be dipped into at any time. These include our very popular ‘make it activities’ with simple instructional videos showing how to make everything from a mini pond to a water cycle in a jar!

The resources can be accessed at: www.wwt.org.uk/family-activities
