Learning from home: Some links for teachers and parents

Dear all,

I’ve put together links to some RE resources, websites and animations that might help you find things to use for home study and in school over the coming period.

I will continue to share things as I find them.

Only use them is they are useful!

Take good care of yourselves.


Ten:Ten have shared a short prayer service for schools. The first slide refers to school closure but subsequent slides will be relevant throughout this period. 


Though not specifically Catholic the National Association of Teachers of Religious Education have lots of resources for all ages. Their website can be found here: http://www.natre.org.uk/about-natre/free-resources-for-you-and-your-pupils/
