Twinkl is also allowing free access to parents during this period to support you in your child’s continued education, please see information below explaining how to set this up.

Schools across the globe are responding to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. In some cases schools have closed or are making preparations for a potential closure.

At Twinkl, our mission is to help those who teach and we are therefore taking steps to support continued learning at home, by offering the teachers and parents of children in schools which are closed, or facing closure, free access to all Twinkl resources for a period of one month in the first instance. 

How do parents sign up for the free month?

Setting this up is really easy to do - go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code that you have been sent by Twinkl. 

How can I help parents to use Twinkl independently?

We have a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. You can direct parents towards our dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home. Or, browse this area yourself and hand-pick individual resources to share. 

For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share. 

For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area. 

For parents with secondary-aged children (for ages 11 to 16), take a look at the Beyond area of the website. Resources are available for English, Maths and Science, as well as languages, art, humanities and other curriculum areas. Lots to keep older children occupied. 

Our Parents User Guide and general Twinkl Membership guide are both useful documents to refer to for general information about the site, our content and how to find it.

Homework grid

Below you will find your child's class homework task grid containing lots of different challenges. These are based around all of the different areas of the school curriculum (such as Maths, Art, PSHCE and PE) and are inspired by our current class topic areas. Each area of the curriculum has three different tasks that vary both in difficulty and the amount of time they are likely to take.

 

There are three difficulty levels:

1: Strengthen your learning

2: Deepen your learning

3: Take the challenge

By offering a wide range of challenges, we hope that your child can choose a task which inspires them, whilst also fitting into your busy home lives. 

 

Recording your homework:

Once your child has completed their task, they can colour/cross off/tick in the box on the grid to show that it has been completed. For some tasks, this is all that is required. For other tasks, recording may be required. We would love to see your child’s hard work and show it off to the rest of the class! Bring us a picture of your completed task (this may be the best way to show us any difficult to move models that you have built or games that you have played!)
