Pupil Resources

At Essendine Primary School, we’re always looking for ways to extend our students’ learning. That’s why, as part of our school improvement programme, we are now using CENTURY – a ground-breaking online learning platform. This will be the primary source of homework for Key Stage 2 pupils

For Year 5/6 pupils, they can access First News iHub, which is the online version of the children's newspaper.  On this program, your child can read articles and answer comprehension questions to deepen their learning.  

As extra reading practise, children can also access a resource called Read Theory.  This website gives specific reading tasks to each child depending on their level.  This resource is to be used as well as weekly homework.

We also have an Essendine Lexia Learning portal which focuses on improving reading skills. Pupils are given a unique login and can access the site below:

Raintree is an online library of Childrens ebooks and can be accessed here:

Previous SATs Papers can be accessed here:

Finally, the LGFL learning content is accessible here:
