Should things change, Parents may like to avail of this offer from Twinkl for free access to Educational resources.
As the Coronavirus spreads, we’re aware that more schools are closing and pupils’ learning is being disrupted. Parents, carers and teachers are looking for ways to ensure the continuity of education during school closures so that no children miss out on valuable learning time.
To support you during this period, Twinkl is offering every teacher in United Kingdom access to all Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge. We’re also extending this to every parent and carer in your school so your pupils can still have access to high-quality learning during any periods of disruption.
Setting this up is really easy to do - go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS
We’d like your support to get this message out. Please let your wider school and leadership team know about this opportunity so that you can all share it with your school community.
Please also share this code with parents and share the link above on your website so parents know where to activate their code.
We’ve also put together some helpful guidance to outline a few ideas for how you can support parents and carers during school closures, ensure high quality learning continues and support teachers, parents and carers to make the most from this offer of help.
If you are an existing Twinkl subscriber on Core or Extra you will be able to use this code to upgrade your current membership using the same link as above.
You can also visit our website - www.twinkl.co.uk
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the Coronavirus outbreak and we hope that this will go some way towards helping.

Both KS2 and KS3 pupils visited the Museum in Armagh to extend their learning within the subjects of World Around Us and Environment and Society. The pupils attended the workshop, Playing through Time where they were given the opportunity to handle and play with old and new toys. The workshop invited the pupils to examine the materials that toys in the past were made from compared to today. Pupils handled tinplate toys, wooden toys, teddy bears and dolls made from a variety of materials as well as clockwork/windup toys. At the end of the interactive workshop they had the choice to make either a peg doll or peg plane to take home.
