We have pulled together some general learning resources for pupils to do whilst they are at home. Those displaying an icon are ones we regularly use in school and our children should be familiar with. We will add additional resources on a regular basis so keep coming back to this page to see what is new. All children have logins for: Purple Mash, Bug Club, My Maths and Times Tables.
Some of these resources are electronic and interactive - games that can be played and learning that can be done online. Other learning activities here are PDFs that can be printed and completed at home. All of the resources are guaranteed to keep children's learning progressing at this challenging time.
