Home Learning Websites
This post contains a list of sites which can be accessed at home to support your children in continuing to learn at home during any isolation. Some of these sites require log-ins which will be given to the children to use at home. If your child is already at home, these can be emailed out.
We have created a range of learning packs for the children to access if there is a long-term school closure. However, we are aware that there are a number of families who have been asked to self-isolate or are choosing to do so. To ensure that your children can continue to make progress we have created a list of sites which they can access at home for free. Some of these require a login which we have created for them. We are sending logins separately.
Your children will need support in logging on to these websites as usernames and password are case-sensitive and must be typed accurately. KS2 children have all been on these sites at school.
