During this period of time where your child is unable to attend school we have put together a useful list of Online Learning Resources to continue to support your child's learning from home. Alongside this your child will have also brought home their Guided Reading packs with 2x books and comprehension questions, as well as a selection of fun Literacy, Mathematics and Phonics tasks.

In addition to this the websites listed below are frequently used within our classroom so your child will be familiar with many of the games and interactive resources.

We look forward to seeing all of our Fantastic Flamingos on their return to school.
