Additional resources

The Department of Education has compiled a comprehensive list of digital resources to support learning from home. These resources are listed under curriculum areas and are suitable for independent offline learning.

We suggest your child read each day for at least half an hour, either independently to themselves, to an adult or older sibling or, if appropriate, have a book read to them by an adult.

Below is an additional list of resources and suggestions to help support your child’s learning from home.

Tips to support your child at home


Timetable or schedule

Use the timetables provided if possible to establish a daily routine. Display their timetable somewhere accessible and refer your child to it regularly.

Encourage your child to have routine breaks

Students need to be active, eat food and drink water. Taking care of themselves is important and will help them learn.

Set up a learning environment

Create a safe, quiet and comfortable learning space, free of distractions.
