Please use the schools URL https://ukhosted44.renlearn.co.uk/6700180/ to take you through to the site. Here your child can use their usual school username and password to access the quizzes.
 
If your child would like to quiz on a book they have read from home that is not one of our school scheme, they simply need to type in the book's title into the search bar to see if it has a quiz attached.
