Learning at home

General learning

 

Helpful resource list provided by the EPSS - very extensive list of helpful sites covering all aspects of the curriculum as well as help for parents in other areas of home life. 

 

Premier League Primary Stars

www.plprimarystars.com

Some of Year 5 and 6 children were taking part in English and maths sessions with Jake from NCFC Community Sports Foundation. He was using some of the resources from Premier League Primary Stars programme during his sessions. Jake has created some ‘classes’ on  which will allow any Nebula pupil to sign in to the website by creating a log in as a pupil. All the children need to do is click on Register (which is in the top right corner of the main home page) and then sign up as a pupil. The ‘class code’ they would then need is ZNS5DD and this will give them access to some English, Maths, PSHE and PE resources from a device at home.
