Zap that Gap!
This year more than ever, its important that we can zap the gaps in our children’s learning so that we can ensure that they can be the best that they can be.
Below are a selection of resources which can be used by parents at home to help “zap any gaps” children may have in their learning. Your child’s class teacher will always be able to sign post you to the right resources, so feel free to either email or call them for more advice. There are also additional resources to be found on the Home Learning section and Supporting Parents with Self Isolation and Home Learning section of our website.
