Here is the current government guidance regarding primary school children learning at home.
Information for Parents
Why have these home learning resources been created?
The activities on the website have been created as a result of the ongoing risk of schools shutting due to the Coronavirus outbreak across the UK.
We know that these resources cannot replace the quality of learning your child receives in school however, our complete focus has been on creating a set of activities that all children can access to maximise their learning whilst at home.
