Home Resources

From Monday 23rd March our school is temporarily closed. Our children’s learning is paramount. Teachers at Woodfield have prepared resources on the learning platforms below for pupils to follow and complete.Some activities can be printed and filled in or just used as a tool to set the context of home study. We have opened communication lines to form tutors so that you, as parents, can contact tutors should you have any queries.

For any e-learning tasks please refer to the links on the pupil homepage.

Please scroll to the bottom of this page to view the email address relating to your child’s class.

Some of our resources will be zipped into year group files. If you are unsure how to unzip resources follow this link for a short tutorial.
