Distance Learning Resources
Resilience and Hope
The current St Paul’s Cathedral rose out of the ashes of the Great Fire of London and survived the Blitz.
Its stones are saturated with stories of resilience and it stands as a beacon of hope for our nation.
All of our Distance Learning resources are framed around these twin themes of resilience and hope. There are resources for all Key Stages, many of them curriculum connected. They include history, maths & science, religious stories & symbolism, art, and literacy, and many of the activities encourage creativity and reflective or empathetic thinking.
