If you do not have access to the Internet please let your class teacher know immediately and they will look at options during the period of isolation.

 PHASE 4

There are many links on our website to support independent learning for children across all subjects. The sites and links will allow children to explore a variety of high-quality resources to support them in researching areas of interest. These may go beyond the curriculum topics at Chesswood but will be highly valuable in engaging children in their independent learning skills and developing a love for learning. Click on the headings below to access the links and resources.
