Subscription sites offering free access:

Below are some of the educational websites who are kindly offering free access during any School Closures.  This is an option for those children and parents who wish to keep educating at home.  These websites are not only educational but lots of fun and a good way to keep busy.  These sites normally charge a lot of money and we appreciate their generosity allowing learning to continue during this time.

Emile Education (all areas, all ages)

This is a multi-award winning app and online program that covers the UK national primary curriculum for numeracy and SPaG with some phonics thrown in. The content is suitable for 4-12 year olds.

It is has a smart system that determines the player’s ability (via a Rating Game) and then allows them to play games and compete at their own level. 

Teachers can track progress and assign specific games or questions. 

Emile makes use of the latest games-based learning approaches and engages students so that they answer thousands of questions. 

Emile works seamlessly on mobiles, tablets, laptops and computers. 

To access Emile go to our web site www.emile-education.com and download the app for your windows 7, 8, 10, android or iOS device. (Emile is also available through the App stores as “Learning with Emile”.)
