Year 1

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. 

The  Parents User Guide and general Twinkl Membership guide are both useful documents to refer to for general information about the site, our content and how to find it. 

You can also find Home Learning Packs from Year 1 to Year 6.
