Children have been sent home with booklets full of activities for them to complete over the closure period. Children also have logins to their Purple Mash, Times Tables Rockstars and Mathletics accounts on which teachers will regularly set some activities to supplement these booklets.
Please find below a list of some websites offering free or trial periods of their resources for use by children and parents at home. They have been broken down into different subjects but often websites do in fact cover the whole curriculum. None of these websites require payment to access so some of the obvious platforms haven’t been included but some may have premium resources that require payment. Some do require you to log in or create a free account to access their materials. This list will be regularly updated with more links as we find them.
