Resources – Home Learning

See our ‘Home Learning’ galleries each week, here!

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:-

Year Group Resources

Please find some fantastic online reading resources below; particularly useful now that we can’t provide books to you from our school library.

Internet resources

There are a number of useful websites, which your child could access to support their learning:

  • The TES pull-out guide 100 fiction books to read before leaving primary school  is a useful general resource.
  • Discovery Education’s Espresso site holds resources that are suitable for EYFS right up to Year 6. Please go to and click ‘Log in’ (top right) and click ‘Espresso’. Log in with the username: student355
  • The password to the Espresso website will be sent to parents via ParentMail/text message/paper copy on 18.03.20.


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 ( and in particular the ‘Discover’ section  which we think will inspire children to learn more about their world.

The Science Museum also contains lots of informative and fun activities for children. These by can be accessed via the ‘See and Do’ section – 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.
