Home learning

We appreciate that these are unprecedented times, below are some suggestions to support your time at home.  It is not a list to follow and some will fit your children and some will not, but hopefully they will be useful! The document at the bottom has several websites as well as those detailed below.  We will continue to update this as we discover more resources to support your home learning.  Remember to also spend time as a family, go for a walk or take a virtual tour of museums via Google Arts and Culture.  You could play board games, bake, learn an instrument!  Reading is a great way to spend some time, World Book Online has just made 3,000 ebooks and audiobooks available free for children.
