So many children are feeling worried and anxious right now, this could help alleviate some of their fears. It has received some wonderful feedback.

As a school we subscribe to interactive learning programmes to aid and improve your child's learning: Busy Things, an interactive platform that covers lots of areas of the curriculum, Time Tables Rockstars and mathletics, an interactive game to practice times tables/maths on and Spellodrome, an interactive spelling resource.

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.
