Other useful websites to help your family stay safe online include:
One of our more popular websites in school is BBC Bitesize for KS1. We also use Espresso which you can log on to from home and Year 1's favourite website is Phonics Play. Please see Mrs Pritchard in the school office for the log in details for both websites. Woodlands Junior School also has a very good website which offers lots of resources and homework help.
