Home Learning

    On this page you will find loads of resources, some of which school subscribes to, for you and your child to activate their learning from the comfort of their own home!  We have tried to arrange them in a way that makes it easy to understand – some of them you will need to create an account (all of them are free), and some of them you may have to use an existing username and password e.g. TT Rockstars. All usernames and passwords have been sent home or emailed out.

    For more Home Learning appropriate to your child's year group, please go to Our Learning and select your child's year group. On each year's page a weekly plan ('Learning Grid') has been put together by your child's teacher and can be used as a timetable for your child's learning. They will be updated throughout the time we're closed, so do keep coming back to our website to check. 

    Home Learning Bulletins with extra activities suggested by Derby City Council are uploaded to this page and emailed to parents on PMX every Monday.
