FUSE Online - Open to All!
Under normal circumstances a group of Forest pupils takes part in the FUSE Theatre. The Rural Arts team have asked us to let everyone know about the work they've been doing during lockdown:
We are running a FUSE YouTube channel, with videos uploaded weekly by two of our artists. These videos are pre-recorded, and are made permanently available to anyone who wants to follow along whenever they like, whatever FUSE group they may be from - or even those who have not joined FUSE before.
This is the link to the YouTube videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLrT23mFAJs_0JYs2xZPiAw

The HelpKidzLearn Team
We wanted to get in touch following the government’s announcement that schools across the UK will be closing from tomorrow as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This will be a time of great upheaval and uncertainty, and it’s vital that we all do whatever we can to help.
Many children do not currently have access to educational software at home, and this will be particularly important for learners who usually benefit from additional reading and writing support when at school.
Therefore, Crick Software would like to offer every school free access for their pupils and teachers to use on their home devices. Choose from:
CLICKER for primary schools – works on iPad, Chromebook, Windows & Mac.
DOCSPLUS for secondary schools – works on Chromebook, Windows & Mac.
