Learning From Home

 

As part of Ghyllgrove's effort to offer learning opportunities whilst children are absent from school; the following websites can be used to download resources and print or view at home:

 

LGfL - London Grid for Learning

Ghyllgrove is now in partnership with LGfL - a national grid of support for teaching and learning. In support of continuing meaningful educational activities, access to the majority of LGfL Learning Resources will be changed over the next month to be open access (ie. requiring no log in) for members of the LGfL community.

Children at Ghyllgrove do not currently have a login as the partnership is brand-new but, as stated; LGfL has opened their resources to launch for free and without a login at home.
