Our Online School Programmes for children

We are delighted to offer parents and pupils a range of online learning tools to supplement the children's learning at school.

Years Reception to Year 2 has access to Reading Eggs and Mathseeds while Years 3-6 have access to Reading Eggspress and Mathletics. These tools can be accessed on any device that goes online e.g. laptop, tablet, iPad, Xbox, Playstation and many more.

In addition all schools in Wales have access to a wide range of online programmes through the Hwb platform. Pupils can log in to access office 365, Minecraft, J2e and many more tools. Teachers in Years 2-6 have set up Microsoft Team pages to set and collaboarte on class activities.

We encourage all parents and pupils to explore the online tools and make it part of their child's weekly learning routine. Children are automatically assessed by the online programme and set challenges and activities accordingly.
