KS3 Digital Learning

We know that many parents are keen to support and structure learning in this difficult period, but it can be hard to know where to start.  Teachers are uploading activities and resources for students on SMHW, so please check there first. 

However, that may not be enough for all students.  Computer programmes can be a good way to learn new content, revise content you have already studied or learn something which interests you.  We have listed below some Apps and websites which are useful for one or many subjects.
