Story Time -The Very Quiet Cricket

A fantastic video of Amanda Jeffrey reading "The Very Quiet Cricket" for all of our primary aged children.

Watch, listen, and most importantly - enjoy!


Attention Autism with Libby Duggan

Watch Libby Duggan, in her garden in the glorious sunshine, giving an example of an Attention Autism session.  Attention Autism is an intervention model designed by Gina Davies, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist.  It aims to develop natural and spontaneous communication through the use of visually based and highly motivating activities.  Gina's primary objective is that the sessions are fun and "offer an irresistable invitation to learn"!  More information about Attention Autism, and Gina Davies herself, can be found at www.ginadavies.co.uk .

This strategy is extremely popular across our school, and we are delighted that Libby has recorded this to share with you all.

Are you ready?  Let's go!

David Walliams

Now, every day at 11am, David Walliams, author of The Boy in The Dress and Gangsta Granny, will be sharing an audio story from one of his best-selling World's Worst Children short story collections.

Whether your children are already firm fans of the author or not, this is a sure way to add some fun and laughter to their mornings. The daily treat is nostalgically named 'Elevenses', and children and grown-ups can tune in for a tale elaborately told by the TV presenter, actor and comedian. And, yes, he does all the voices.



Joe Wicks

"I am holding LIVE PE lessons at 9am Monday to Friday on my YouTube channel for children of all ages... Parents are going to be under pressure next week and for 30 minutes a day I can take over and inspire and energise the kids to get active, bounce around and have fun. You can even join in with the kids... This is going to help millions of children and parents feel happier for 30 minutes and beyond everyday." - Joe Wicks, The nation's PE teacher!




"For as long as schools are closed, we're open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.

All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.

Explore the collection, select a title and start listening.

It's that easy."

Home Learning Websites & Resources

Please find below a list of some of the websites offering free or trial periods of their resources.

They have been broken down into different subjects but often websites do in fact cover the whole curriculum.
