Special circumstances 2020
This page has been set up as a starting point to provide online learning opportunities for any children who may currently be being educated at home. The page will develop over the coming days, and we hope you are able to make use of the links and resources as they are added.
There is a list here of learning websites that may be useful as a starting point. Please also make use of the resources that we already have on this website.
If you click on the 'curriculum' tab, you will find under maths links to the mad minutes questions, calculations policies, Numbots, Timetable rockstars, interactive maths learning and maths vocabulary. Click on the English link to access useful websites for literacy. By clicking on the 'About us' tab you can find the online learning tab with access to spellings.
There are some documents below that you may like to download for your child to work on at home.
