Free Home Learning Packs are being offered to all by Plazoom.
The following details are taken from an email that arrived today:
“Teachers – we know you are facing extraordinarily challenging times at the moment, and we want to help. These specially compiled learning packs for Year 1, Year 2, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6 are FREE to download, so you can share them with colleagues and parents.
Each pack represents enough literacy work for five mornings, requiring minimal adult support. Answer sheets are included where relevant, and we’ll be adding more packs over the coming weeks.
Thank you, from all of us, for everything you do; and please, look after yourselves, too.” (Plazoom)
It seems that more resources may be made available over the coming weeks and I am sure that parents would be very pleased to access such resources enabling them to help their children without too much preparation or thought. The packs may inspire parents of good ways of working with their children.
