Home Learning!



During the current school closures, we will continue to inform you of different websites and resources that you can use at home.


More and more subscription-based services are being offered free-of-charge at this time and we will continue to tell you about these as we hear about them, but please pay careful attention to the terms and conditions of these sites, especially as their free period comes to an end.


Your child has a login for Google Classroom, where we will post more specific tasks and activities should you wish to engage with them.


Here is a list of useful links to websites for online games and ideas for activities at home. Please note that this is a shared list of resources for children across our school and therefore not all resources will be appropriate for all ages.

I will upload each week's learning below. They are merely ideas, linked to what we have been learning about in class. The work is not compulsory, but in order for the children to maintain a sense of routine and of course, keep their academic education going, they should try and complete a range of these activities if they are not able to attend school for a prolonged period.
