Subscription sites offering free access

Below are some of the educational websites who are kindly offering free access during any school closures.  This is an option for those children and parents who wish to keep educating at home.  These websites are not only educational but lots of fun and a good way to keep busy.  These sites normally charge a lot of money and we appreciate their generosity, allowing learning to continue during this time.

Emile  (4-12)

All  children in Y1 to Y6 now have an individual login  for this site.  To access  details go to discussion page 'Curriculum - New website for us to try'.

Emile provides interactive, trackable learning activities for spelling, grammar and maths (broken down into different topics). To begin, choose a topic and play a 'rating game'.  This will make sure that the practice games you are given are set at the right level of challenge.

Numberblocks- EYFS and Y1

Numberblocks is a pre-school BBC television series aimed at introducing children to early number.

Snappy animation and loveable characters combine with engaging storylines to gently introduce concepts of number to support early mathematical understanding. The NCETM materials help children to bring the numbers and ideas to life in the world around them.
