Educational and Activity resources

During this tricky time in Covid Lockdown we thought it might be useful to have some additional resources to help entertain and educate young people at home.  We have listed a few links for you to try out with a brief description.  If you have any others you would like to share them please let us know and we can add them to the list.

Twinkl Go (https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go) is a great vibrant website with lots of fun games and activities for young people to do.  It caters for different age groups from 0-5, 5-7, 7-11, and11-18.  So something for all ages based on the UK curriculum. You do need to sign up but this only takes a few minutes.  It also has lots of interesting blogs which adults might find useful if they have to educate children at home.  It is a great resource if you need a little break in between lessons or for a few minutes of fun education screen time in the evening or at weekends.
