The University of Cambridge has curated a selection of online resources and activities to help children learn at home. The wide range of activities have been pulled together by The Cambridge Museums, the Botanic Gardens, the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University and non-school institutions and initiatives such as the Millennium Maths Project. With museums closed many including the Fitzwilliam Museum, The Polar Museum and the Museum of Zoology are replacing their family programmes with online activities which bring topics to life through real-life case studies, virtual stories, colouring, craft, worksheets and other interactive resources. The Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences has a ‘Virtual Microscope’, which tells the story of the common rock types in the UK and how they form, as well as an online exhibition about ‘Wonderchicken’, the oldest and best-preserved bird fossil which was found in 2000. The Faculty of Education at Cambridge University, one of the largest centres for educational research and teacher training in the UK, also offers simple ways for parents or carers to support children’s education, regardless of their expertise. Five education experts from the University have provided their tips, free resources and advice on how to make the most of home-schooling in lockdown, including the use of TV, radio and different types of play.
