Home Learning

Due to school closures, home learning packs will be added to this page. Please check daily for updates.

David Walliams free daily audio stories. Now, every day at 11am, David Walliams, author of The Boy in The Dress and Gangsta Granny, will be sharing an audio story from one of his best-selling World’s Worst Children short story collections.

Whether your children are already firm fans of the author or not, this is a sure way to add some fun and laughter to their mornings. The daily treat is nostalgically named ‘Elevenses’, and children and grown-ups can tune in for a tale elaborately told by the TV presenter, actor and comedian. And, yes, he does all the voices.

You can listen to David Walliams’ daily short stories at any time, with each being released at 11.00am from 24 March to 23 April. Visit his website for activities, clips, books and more.
