Year 4 Westbrook primary

With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during any potential school closures. 

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have provided links to a range of content for your child that can be completed independently or with adult support.

For independent learning and games, we recommend using Classroom Secrets Kids.  Packed with fun and engaging content, this online learning platform will guarantee to keep your child learning independently.  Parents will need to register and create a free account for each child in the household before accessing these resources.  Registration is easy and explained clearly on the site.

Free Computing Resources

Home Learning will not be set over the two week holiday. It will resume on Monday 8th June. During this time, please feel free to access the activities on the year group ‘Learning at Home’ pages.
