Educational resources

This is the first week that children are at home instead of school due to Coronavirus.I know many parents are stressed about their children falling behind so I've pulled together some educational resources that might be useful.The Literacy Trust has created The Family Zone, a one-stop shop for parents and their kids. It's got lots of helpful resources to aid reading, writing and language development: Bitesize offers resources that are divided into subject and age categories. This website is likely to be updated in the coming few days with more content: Twinkle has given parents free access to its website for a month. It has SEN and EAL teaching resources and is divided by age categories: TED-Ed has video-based lessons (organised by age group), and a daily newsletter: BrainPop is offering free access while schools are closed to its animated movies on topics in maths, science and English: Tynker is giving kids free online coding courses during school closures: Joe Wicks, aka the Body Coach, is doing a daily PE session at 9am, which is a great way to start the day! If you missed them over the last couple of days, you can still check them out on his YouTube channel:
