Inspiring Believing Achieving 

Home Learning 

The following page has been set up to help supplement our individual class pages with more general ideas and links across the curriculum that can be applied to all classes. There will be links to resources and websites to help support amongst other things reading, PE and general fun and creative ideas. We will add new ideas gradually over the next few weeks rather than overload you all in one go. Many of these have already been widely shared on other platforms. We hope you find it easy to navigate and useful.
