Home Learning - Covid-19
We have put together an online learning zone to help you and your family learn from home during the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic.
In the event of a Bubble closure or whole school closure, children have been issued with their Microsoft Teams login. Please keep this safe and await further information. www.teams.microsoft.com
As a school, we are encouraging pupils to use IXL to complete their age appropriate Maths and English tasks. They can also use PurpleMash, Oak Academy and White Rose Maths (links below).
- Log in to Purple Mash, here - https://www.purplemash.com/sch/thegood-nn2 .
- Login to IXL, here - www.ixl.com/signin/olicatschools.
Children can also practice their times tables via TT Rockstars, this is something they have been using at school and should also have a log in for this. Log in here - https://ttrockstars.com/.
If you do not have a login for the above learning platforms, please contact the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are some useful links to external websites that are also offering fantastic resources during this time.
