Apps and Resources

There are a number of apps which we encourage pupils to use, particularly Bug Club, Pixl Maths and MyMaths.  These can all be found on the school's elearning page.

Twinkl, a commercial provider of learning resources and worksheets, are generously giving parents free access to their website for a month, whilst schools are closing.  To beneift from this, please visit the website below, and create your own account using your email address and the offer code: CVDTWINKLHELPS

Some of you might remember Mrs Glasgow, who used to be a Year 3 teacher at King's Wood.  She very kindly shared this document with lots of good resources for all ages, across the curriculum.


Below is a list of other educational websites which you may wish to encourage your child to use:

Khan Academy

Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it's mostly common material.


BBC Learning

This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.



Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).



For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher level material.



Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.
