During these unprecedented times we are concerned about children visiting lots of different sites to access curriculum based activities. Please be aware that there will be bogus sites out there that will ask your child to sign in. Encourage your child to access the sites that have been uploaded to the Home Learning page or preferably monitor their internet access.
