Useful Websites (home learning)

With many children and young people not attending school we understand that these are challenging times for families and carers and you may be wanting to access online resources to help your child to continue to learn and keep busy whilst they are at home with you.

We have put together a list of websites and activities that you may find useful to do with your children; some educational and some just for fun. We all know how difficult it can be to keep children entertained but we hope these may go some way to helping keep little minds busy.
