London Learning at Home is a new Mayor of London initiative that brings together free learning and cultural offers that children can access from home. Young Londoners can use to online performances, quizzes, activities and much more to still feel connected to the incredible people, places and culture of their city. You can search by age range (0 - 18 years), subject, key stage and organisation to find what you need. We know this can be a busy time, so we also asked organisations to estimate the level of adult supervision required.
