If your child has forgotten your username and/or password, for any of the Home Learning resources, please ask your child's teacher or contact Mrs Wicks in the office.

To access any of these resources visit the relevant area within the Children section.



Espresso, from Discovery Education, is an online cross-curricular service that provides video-rich resources to schools throughout the UK. It contains thousands of videos and multimedia activities, as well as a weekly news service — all designed by teaching professionals.

We use Espresso in school to help motivate, engage and support learning in the classroom. Now your child can continue to enjoy what they have been doing at school, and you can be involved in their learning at home.



IXL, from IXL Learning, is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited Maths and English practice problems in thousands of skills - all of which are aligned to the national curriculum. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!

In addition to making learning exciting, IXL is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The program is adaptive and will adjust based on your child's demonstrated understanding of the material. All of your child's results will be saved, so you can monitor his or her progress anytime by clicking on the Analytics tab at the top of the page.


Purple Mash


Purple Mash, from 2Simple, is a creative educational website for children. It is a is a cross-curricular resource covering Art to Science and all subjects in between. 

Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. 

We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. 


Times Table Rock Stars

When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy is important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. 

Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help your child master the times tables!  To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!


World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they've spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise and practise and practise.

And this is where you come in. For your child to be fully motivated and for them to get the best out of the practice, they need your help. Without your praise and your reminders, without you sitting down next to them or checking their work, practising times tables will not feel important to your child.

Research shows that daily practise is the best strategy for children to learn these important facts.  Short bursts of daily practise are much more effective than spending hours once a week.
