Find a list of useful learning aids here!
Following requests from a number of pupils and parents, we have begun to compile a list of a few useful apps and websites to support learning at home. However, please bear in mind that there are thousands of Apps (many of which are free apps) which can be used to support learning. This is by no means a list of the only apps to use, nor is it a request for you to spend additional money on Apps etc. If anyone knows of any good, free educational and supportive Apps, please share these with a member of staff at Hall Green so that we can also utilise them in school.

As well as these, all children also have access to Education City. Every child is allocated an individual username and password which will give them home access to activities which have been carefully selected and assigned by their class teachers. Log here.
All pupils also have access to Sam Learning. This is a website with age related activities to support learning. The time children spend using Sam Learning is ‘logged’ in school and frequent users are rewarded. This is particularly used in upper KS2, but all pupils have individual user names and passwords allowing access. Log in here.
Pupils have access to Purple Mash. This website has lots of creative tools that can be used to support their learning in all topics. They may be set homework on here and can save their work to their own folder. Purple Mash will be used by the children during a lot of their Computing lessons at school.
