Online Learning Links

We have a range of sites online that Whinstone subscribes to, which enables the great learning your child does at school to continue at home. Here are the links that we use in Whinstone…

Purple Mash is a very useful site, as it has creative links for any subject.  All children from Reception to Y6 have a username and login for Purple Mash.

Education City is superb for allowing your child to play on the internet safely, with a wealth of educational games.  All children from Reception to Y6 have a username and login for Purple Mash.

Times tables Rockstars is a great (very addictive!) APP/website where the children earn points to spend, when they get times tables and division sums correct.   Children will recieve a username and password in Y2 for this.   For use in Y2-Y6.

LEXIA is a computerised reading program that provides phonics instruction and encourages independent learning of basic reading skills for children who find decoding tricky.  Class teachers and Miss McNaughton (our SEND leader) assess the children who would most benefit from this instruction.  Children use it in school and can also access it from home.

LEXIA Helpsheet- provides you with the information on how to access via website or APP.
