A Cultural Quarantine

Continuing from Learn and Shine!

Many online resources have been made available to help support home learning. The following websites, TV programmes, podcasts and theatre performances could be useful to dip into over the next few weeks. They cover a range of areas in the curriculum and hopefully provide a lot of awe and wonder. Keep an eye out because things are changing all the time; for example, on Thursday 2 April Tate Modern announced that from 6 April you can take a free online tour of their Andy Warhol exhibition.

Why not take a virtual day out?
