Help with Virtual Learning

Help with Virtual Learning

The table below contains the key learning tools that we will be using in our virtual classrooms. The list will be being constantly reviewed, and if we find new pieces of software that we think the children will benefit from using they will be added. Where we think it will be especially helpful, we have provided guidance documents and demonstration videos, which we hope will help parents and pupils navigate their way around the  software being used for virtual learning.
