Websites to support learning
At this unprecedented time we encourage our families to ensure that you are taking the time to spend time doing things that allow you to enjoy each other's company and things at home that you might not usually get time to do - cooking, playing board games, building lego, painting pictures, being storytellers, reading with and to each other, making crafts, making huts from blankets, hopscotch, skipping, gardening . . . the list is endless!
Currently our classes have specific links and activities available to them through our class pages (see on the 'Learning At Weston' drop down above), however if you are looking for other links of interest there are a number of links below to some really valuable websites.
Please feel free to email Mrs Senior - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you have some suggestions too!
