Distance learning for parents during school closure

Dear Parents or Carers,

In light of current events concerning the Coronavirus and distanced learning, we have put together a small pack of different activities that children could use at home. The activities are suggestions of things that you could do with the children should schools close.  We have made these available in case people have no or limited access to the internet.

There are wide and varied resources that are available online and below are some suggested links to websites that you may want to investigate with your child. The children have access and login accounts, with school, on sites like HWB, Bug club (ACTIVELEARNPRIMARY) and TTRockstars that may be a valuable source when learning from home.
Some of these have free downloads that can be used on tablet devices.
