Released 06 April 2020: a free information book explaining the coronavirus to children, illustrated by Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler

Twinkl is currently offering every parent at our school a free membership for one month from today (Monday 16th March 2020) so that families can access their high-quality learning content that covers a variety of subjects, and it’s really easy to set up: just visit www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.  You can find age-appropriate lessons and games for your child.


Scoop it’s for children who are passionate (or about to be passionate!) about reading, who want to know what’s going on in the world, who have a terrific sense of humour, and who love the idea of writing for a magazine and entering creative competitions. You can download our free Feast of Words and Pictures for Kids here.

Here is a poster for you to view and download for Supporting Your very own Readers at Home

The following links are grouped by subject, and are sites frequently used by staff in school to help prepare their lessons.
