Below are some useful links to learning packs, games, ideas and activities to do with your child. 


New Resources: The following link will take you to Knowsley Local Offer website with lots of great ideas and information on the COVID 19 tab. These resources are from the Knowsley SEND team but they could be useful even if your child is not SEND. We advise you check out the resources first to ensure age appropriateness.


White Rose Maths

White Rose Maths have changed their policy regarding access to work meaning that the resources that were previously free are now part of the premium service. In order to keep consistently learning at home, the school has decided to pay for the resources. However, this means that the only place to access the work is on this class page where we will upload all of the weekly lessons. 

We will also be supplementing this curriculum work with Classroom Secrets resources which you can use to tackle further topics with your child. This will be available below to download.
