I'm thinking of pulling my DD out of school for a while if they don't close anyway due to CV.

Can anyone recommend any resources for year one please? Younger would be ok too as she has SEN. We have a Twinkl account, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds but if anyone knows of anything else I would be very grateful.

Thank you

School closures will no doubt come, for any parents worrying this list was put together by the home ed community 💗 feel free to share.

FREE online education resources

A non-exhaustive list that might help those affected by school closures due to coronavirus, compiled by home educators.
Feel free to share.

Khan Academy
Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it's mostly common material.

BBC Learning
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.

Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).

For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher level material.

Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.

Learn computer programming skills - fun and free.
