There was a list on Mumsnet, and I have seen it on FB too, of on-line learning. It included Khan academy amongst others.

Now I may need it I can't find it.

Would anyone know what I am talking about and be able to help.

Thanks in advance.

Just want to add Conquer Maths to that list, it's an Aussie made resource and is subscription but it's fab and does age 4 to 18.
