Home Learning Supplement Reaches Over 80,000 Households

Published: 18 July 2020
The final edition of ‘Sheffield Learning Together’ went out with the Sheffield Star last week. The eleven editions saw 81,989 copies delivered to Sheffield families during the lock-down period.

Learn Sheffield worked with the Sheffield Star and partners from across the city to produce a weekly home learning supplement every Thursday in May, June and July. ‘Sheffield Learning Together’ went out with the paper each Thursday and was also available to download from our website.

Across the eleven weeks that it was in operation (from 8 May to 16 July) it was distributed to families (thanks to sponsorship) by a network of schools and partners from Voluntary Action Sheffield. The final number of copies distributed was an amazing 81,989. 

The 16 page supplement included learning activities for all age ranges, as well tips and activities  to support mental health, physical activity, healthy eating, and much more. All eleven editions of the supplement can be viewed here https://learnsheffield.co.uk/Covid-19
