WEBSITES FOR HOME LEARNING
Free Parental Access to Twinkl (KS1 and KS2)
Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer. This is the quickest and easiest way for parents to get set up. Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS.
There are a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. There is also a dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home.
For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share.
For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.
You can also find Home Learning Packs from Year 1 to Year 6.

WORK FROM MISS WELLS
If you could get the ingredients could you make some playdough together?
Here is a simple recipe:
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
- Food coloring
- 1 cup flour
- Combine water, oil, salt, cream of tartar, and food coloring in a saucepan and heat until warm.
- Remove from heat and add flour.
- Stir, then knead until smooth. The cream of tartar makes this dough last 6 months or longer, so resist the temptation to omit this ingredient if you don't have it on hand.
- Store this dough in an airtight container or a Ziploc freezer bag.
