Twinkl - Contingency Work

Dear Parents,
Twinkl Educational Publishing is an online educational publishing house, producing teaching and educational materials. Like many Primary schools around the country, we at Ogbourne find Twinkl to be an invaluable resource. During this new phase of Lockdown, we encourage you and your child to explore and use these materials.
Best wishes,
Mr R.Smith

Twinkl - How to Utilise Twinkl during the Coronavirus Shutdown: A Guide for School

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/blog/how-to-utilise-twinkl-during-the-coronavirus-shutdown-a-guide-for-schools utm_source=promo&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=England_coronavirus_individuals_email&utm_content=link_to_blog

How do teachers and parents sign up for the free month?

Setting this up is really easy to do - go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.

How can schools and teachers let parents know about this offer of help?
Choose the method that works best for you. Email, text, or WhatsApp the code to parents. Share it on class blogs, school social media pages,  or publish it on your school website with a link to Twinkl, using the URL www.twinkl.co.uk/offer. Print out stickers and stick these into reading diaries or learning journals. Pop a slip of paper into book bags. We don’t mind how you do it - but we do want to help as many schools and families as we can, with your support.

How can I help parents to use Twinkl independently?
We have a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. You can direct parents towards our dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home. Or, browse this area yourself and hand-pick individual resources to share.

For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share. For
primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.

What can I do to support learning at home?
There are a number of simple ways you can curate and share content from the Twinkl website, as well as many useful areas that parents can easily use.

Using our Home Learning Packs
We have put together Home Learning Packs from Year 1 to Year 6.

Our EYFS Home Learning Packs can be found here.
Our KS1 Home Learning Packs can be found here.
Our KS2 Home Learning Packs can be found here.
Our SEND Home Learning Pack is available here.

Using Twinkl Originals
Parents may feel more comfortable and confident in using books as a starting point for learning. Our Twinkl Originals books were created to encourage a love of reading and enhance curriculum-wide learning through accompanying teacher-created resources. Each book is available in different formats - PowerPoint, eBook or audio book (available through Twinkl Go!) - and has been written using age-appropriate vocabulary and themes. Books are available for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 and each comes with ready-made resources to support writing, maths and other curriculum areas. Once you’ve found a book within the Twinkl Originals page, click to see all supporting resources. If you’re covering a particular topic at school, this is a great way to continue this learning at home.
