We are regularly adding content to the website to support home learning and have shared some useful advice and guidance to help you create a positive learning environment.

Remember, your child has a login for TT Rockstars and for Purple Mash.

To log in to Numbots, use the same login details and password as for TT Rockstars.

Elvington Staff Videos

Staff have created videos covering a number of areas from bedtime stories; lessons on angles; the science behind handwashing; phonics; reading comprehension; Aesop’s Fables; circuit training; mathematical magic; making a cheesecake and many more… These videos will hopefully maintain a connection with your child/ren and their teacher.  In case you missed these recordings when they were first released, they are now available on this website.
