DDs teacher recommended Twinkl, she's missed quite a bit of school and we're using some of the resources on there to help catch up. We have Oxford Reading Tree, what else could we look at? What's useful? She's 7, and I know nothing about teaching! Recommendations please!

Twinkl is great
What specifically do you need help with ?
iPad apps ?

Amazon sell nice early comprehension books. scholastic resources are good. games will help

DD has hearing and comprehension problems, and is rather behind in both literacy and maths. All I've been doing is finding out what she's going to be taught and then doing an overview of it beforehand so it's not all brand new when she sees it in class.
She seems to learn better in an unstructured environment so I leave materials around and let her do them without pressure.

We've got Mr Thorne phonics but she's not getting on with it really and doesn't enjoy reading.
