Additional support for home learning

Morning all,

Hope you are all safe and well.  In school, we have noticed that Education City isn’t working so wanted to update you and also pass on details of other sites that may be useful for home learning in case sites suggested for your children are not working.

Classroom Secrets have produced some worksheets designed to keep pupils busy during any school closures. They are designed to be printed off, but they may also be used ‘on-screen’ with pupils writing their answers in their exercise books and parents checking them using the answers provided! There is a link on this page to each year group with plenty of work to do! No password is required.

Classroom Secrets

Twinkl is offering every teacher in United Kingdom access to all Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge. They are also extending this to every parent and carer in the school so the pupils can still have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption.

Setting this up is really easy to do – go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS
