Dear Parents/Carers,

We have collated a number of links that you can access for home learning, if you want additional ideas to supplement work set by school.

One website, Twinkl, provides a huge amount of resources for teachers. These resources are not usually available for free, but Twinkle has sent a message saying they will give free membership to parents for a limited time. This means that you can sign up to Twinkl and access their resources, using the code CVDTWINKLEHELPS, on the website
