Websites to Explore

We will be adding websites to this list as we find them. Please be aware not all websites will be suitable for your child. Talk to your child’s teacher to find out what stage your child is currently learning at and this will guide you to the most relevant sections of these websites. If you have any suggestions for this page, please email them to Sophie.evitts@brackenfield.derbyshire.sch.uk.

A good website offering advice is: https://www.educationalappstore.com/; please note-some apps on this site are paid for apps. 

Here are some websites we use in school. 

Website: Picture News assemblies 

What is it? There are weekly assemblies for you to watch with your family. 

Website: www.vimeo.com/channels/picturenews

Website: YouTube

What is it? YouTube is a video sharing service where users can watch, like, share, comment and upload their own videos. The video service can be accessed on PCs, laptops, tablets and via mobile phones. You can download a YouTube Kids which limits the content to only family friendly videos.

Being active is essential during this time, it is great for our physical health, but also for our emotional health. When we exercise it increases endorphins in our body (happy hormones), and triggers positive feelings in the body.   Why not try The body Coaches PE lessons, they are 30 minutes activity, that you can do in your house or in the garden, these sessions are live on YouTube everyday at 9 am (sign in and comment your child might get a shout out!) they are great for the whole family to do together, and really get your day started.  If you miss the (9 am session you can get previous days sessions on  the YouTube channel too.
