- THENUK
- MuddlePuddle for people EHEing under-8s

- Joyfully Rejoycing is a really good site for autonomous living and learning
- AHED is a campaigning organisation.

Can I add twinkl primary resources as well, great for EYFS and under 8s. I've used some great Olympic resources from there. They have a phonics app too which is great.

I have just started homeschooling my daughter (I worked as a primary school teacher for 5 years) and some of these links are great for getting in contact with other HE groups and learning about the legal aspects :-)
I'm constantly looking for educational sites, preferably free, that I can use with my daughter and would like to share them with other parents who are home educating.

- Primary Leap This site is free and covers lots of topics including literacy, numeracy, science, geography, history and lots of theme worksheets too.

- Kidszone This site is great for maths worksheets and also provides lesson plans.

- JumpStart This site covers lots of subjects and also has online games.

Those are just some of my favs, hope you like them! smile

There are several blogs on the mumsnet blogs which can shed light on how other home educators do it. Some are autonomous and some are structured. We are semi structured as you are welcome to see on my blog(Homeschoolprestwich)

'A little Bit Of Structure' is another home educating website which offers support to those home ed parents who are a little bit structured.

Thanks
