Home / Holiday Learning Activities 


During the holidays, Google classrooms will continue to be accessible however they will not be monitored by the teachers during this time.

The teaching staff have put together lots of additional activities for you which can be accessed by clicking on your year group. In addition, all the website links below will remain.



We hope that you find some of these links useful. Please check the suitability for your children. Many have chat/comments sections which may not be age appropriate and some access Youtube.

Learn about Bikes!

Many of us are going out on our bikes more, so it is a good time to learn how they work and how to look after them!

ALSO, this answers that age old question, should a tyre be more like an apple or an orange? It’s also a great demo showing how to check bike tyres are pumped up properly, and how to pump them up if not. Please feel free to share this link with families.

Thank you,

Mrs Bingham, Parley Bike Champion, on behalf of Sustrans School Officers for Dorset.
