In the event of academy closure, we endeavour to create as little disruption to our pupils’ learning as possible. With that in mind, we would like to share the following resources with you:-
There are a number of useful websites, which your child could access to support their learning:
The British Red Cross has many resources available, including the Power of Kindness Calendar! These activities help primary learners develop empathy with others, learn to help others, develop their resilience and gain many other life skills. Just click here or on their logo to go to the website.
David Walliams is reading from one of books online, each day from 11am. Just click here or on the picture to go to his website and search ‘elevenses’.
Learning via Museums
A number of the major museums have excellent children’s zones within their website.
We would recommend the Natural History Museum’s site (nhm.ac.uk) and in particular the ‘Discover’ section https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover.html which we think will inspire children to learn more about their world.
The Science Museum https://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/ also contains lots of informative and fun activities for children. These by can be accessed via the ‘See and Do’ section – https://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/see-and-do but please do check that the materials selected are aimed at KS1, as the website does provide resources for older pupils which will not be suitable.
Please continue to check our‘Newsletters & Letters to Parents’ page, as well as our‘Resources – Home Learning’ pages. As you know, we are all facing extraordinary challenges at this time and the situation is placing pressure on all parts of society. Our staff have been doing all they can to keep our Academies open, or […]
