Home Learning Links

 Please see below for some English resources which can be accessed at home. Some of these are resources which teachers use with the children in school and some are interactives which are currently available for free to parents as a result of the ongoing situation with Covid-19.

Please be mindful of your child accessing resources which are appropriate for their year group. A summary of the year group key objectives can be found via our non-negotiables in the links below. Consolidation of previous year group work is encouraged and we continually revisit things in school.
