Norwich Cathedral shares homeschool resources

Norwich Cathedral’s Schools and Families learning department has released new resources for parents and carers who are schooling their children from home.

There is a dedicated webpage: which includes activity sheets that span various curriculum areas, especially History, RE and Science. Children can take a virtual trip to Norwich Cathedral and also other parts of the world in the ‘Christianity around the world’ activity. Head of Schools and Family Learning, Janet Marshall, said: “This is a great way to engage them in some RE that they can research lots about in a geographical way too at this time at home. Perhaps they could embark on a virtual trip round the world from their homes?? We’d love to hear where they get to and what they discover about the countries and the religions! It can be extended into a world faiths project.”
Janet has contacted teachers at Norfolk schools to invite them to use the resources, which include figures such as Edith Cavell, Florence Nightingale and topics such as the Great Fire, the Green Man and medieval medicine.
Janet and her team are creating new content, which includes a new film which includes Budge the Cat. Janet said, “I am going to start on some Tudors as we have a lot connected to Anne Boleyn’s family in the Cathedral – watch this space!”
Families are encouraged to tweet creative work or questions to @cathedraledu  or to email Janet on
