Our home learning packs have been compiled by the Young People’s Trust for the Environment to support parents and carers whilst their children are at home during the Covid-19 lockdown.

We will be producing a new pack each week, to be released every Friday for the duration of the lockdown.  Home Learning Packs will include suggestions for activities you can do alongside your children, as well as those that they can do independently, whilst you are working from home.

We will attempt to suggest activities which require no special materials other than those you may find around the house. It may be possible to pick up some resources during your occasional shop for essentials but please do not aim to shop specifically for listed supplies!  We will also attempt to minimise the need to print out any materials. 

We’d love to hear your suggestions for making the packs more useful for you, or your children’s ideas for future topics. You can follow us on Facebook at
https://www.facebook.com/WeAreYPTE/  on Twitter @YPTE or on Instagram @weareypte. You can share your pictures with us using #yptelearning

In your pack each week:

  • Open ended project ideas and research topics
  • Activities to explore independently or together 
  • Games to play
  • Ideas for science experiments
  • Art and craft ideas
  • Links to other learning resources
  • A use each week for toilet roll tubes…
