Following government guidance to close the school, we have compiled a list of useful online resources and activities. You can use these with your child to support their learning whilst at home. Visit our web links page for more FREE online education resources.
Whilst the work we upload is important, we encourage you and your child to learn through as many practical experiences and opportunities as you can. Please enjoy Joe Wicks' PE Lessons each day, listening to audio books, Mrs Tubbs' daily challenge (via the blog), and exploring all the different websites where your child can learn through interactive games, phonics, maths, grammar, science and reading skills.
Much loved illustrator Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom) has partnered with Nosy Crow and medical and educational experts on Coronavirus: A Book for Children. Aimed at 5-9 year olds, the book addresses tricky questions in a simple way, designed to help young readers understand what coronavirus is and why it is impacting our lives.
To ensure accessibility for all, the book has been shared online FOR FREE and can be read or downloaded via the Nosy Crow website: https://nosycrow.com/blog/free-information-book-explaining-coronavirus-children-illustrated-gruffalo-illustrator-axel-scheffler/
