Following the government’s announcement to close schools for the majority of pupils, we are working hard to ensure your child has access to quality learning resources.
With this in mind we have created 2 special online learning areas which the Staff will be updating regularly with messages, ideas and suggestions to keep everyone motivated and maintain that special family atmosphere that being at Hackthorn gives to us all. Click the links below to get started
To support you during this period, we are forwarding a FREE link to Twinkl resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership.
Setting this up is really easy to do – go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer , set up an account and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS
Please work through the resources that are relevant to your child/children’s year group. The children may record their answers in the exercise books that were issued a few days ago.
