English @ Home
On this page you can find resources planned to be used in home. All families are different and all will find their own path through the school closures. There is no expectation from us other than wanting to support families at this difficult time.

- Reading Rocks Blog has morphed into a Virtual Library
- The Book of Hopes - a free book for children from the Literacy Trust

English as an Additional Language - EAL
Some children who speak English as their second language may benefit from these learning packs from Flash Academy.
If you are very new to English this pack is for you!
Most Kingsmead children with English as an additional language will benefit from this pack.
Some older ones may even like the High School pack. May be useful for older brothers and sisters at high school.
