Home Learning Resources
During the coming weeks, this page will be updated to provide resources and links for you to use at home. Remember, one of the key skills in your child's learning is to read regularly so if you have access to books at home this will help them to stay engaged with learning. Can you please tell as many people as you can about this section of the website so our children can be made aware of these resources and have access to them. Remember to ask your children to visit the 'Children' page and keep an eye out for the 'Home Learning Projects' that you can access from the Parents drop down menu. Thank you!
