As we adjust to school closure and learning from home, we would like to share some links to websites that you may find helpful in the coming weeks. Teachers will also be posting links to websites as part of the home learning on class blogs that is specific to the learning that day or week.
New things are appearing all the time and we keep adding to this list. There is a HUGE amount out there so we have tried to focus on Gaelic related resources and a few others we really like.
Each child has a password for Giglets (online books in Gaelic and English) and for Sumdog (online maths games) that is attached to their jotter in their learning pack. You can visit their websites here:
