Home Learning Tasks

Online Safety for 8-10 yr olds

In light of recent events, we have compiled a list of websites and online games for children to access as well as non-screen activities and learning packs. We hope you find these useful.

We are fully aware that most parents are not teachers and we do not expect parents to be teaching their children. Below are ideas and packs that are educational and that your child should be able to get on with, with as little parental teaching as possible. Thank you for the amazing job that you are all doing - we appreciate it!

Please find below the tasks set for each pupil. These have been sent out to you on ParentMail.

Pupils, please ask permission if a link requires YouTube.
