Festival Theme for 2021

The 2021 Family Learning Festival theme is Play, Imagine, Learn.

This year's theme aims to inspire a love of learning through play and imagination. We’ve put together some activity ideas to get started including resources and activities from Campaign for Learning and national organisations. 


Play, Imagine, Learn... Out and About 

  • Create a miniature book with The British Library, inspired by outdoor adventures 

  • Learn about science with outdoor activities from the British Science Association (and ones families can do at home and in the kitchen!)

  • Lego Foundation has lots of play activities to stimulate imagination and learning to do outdoors (as well as indoors)

  • Nature scavanger hunts to feed the imagination from The Woodland Trust

Play, Imagine, Learn... at Home 


Play, Imagine, Learn...and Feel Great


  • Support financial wellbeing and help children learn about money through play with activities from the Campaign for Learning's Love Learning about Money partnership progamme

  • NatWest MoneySense has fun activities, games and videos for all ages to help children learn about money

  • Partnership for Children has lots of activities to support children’s mental and emotional wellbeing

  • Barclays LifeSkills has free resources for families to manage stress and support wellbeing at home as well as develop money skills
