Free home learning resources for parents

12 January 2021

Countryside Classroom has relaunched its Home Education Hub which features a wealth of free, downloadable resources to help with teaching and learning at home.

The platform includes content relevant to all ages and curriculum subjects, focussing on food, farming and the natural environment so is ideal for parents home-schooling children of different ages.

The Hub offers resources for the more traditional subjects, as well as exciting and engaging materials to help children learn about where their food comes from and the natural world around them – even if at this difficult time, when access to the outdoors is limited. The resources also help parents bring to life how vital food, farming and nature is for our health and wellbeing, which has never been so important as now.

There will also be weekly blogs focusing on a range of subjects including english, maths, science and art. 

You can access these fabulous larning resources here.
