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: https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/

BBC 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: https://bbc.co.uk/bitesize

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: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/

TED-Ed has video-based lessons (organised by age group), and a daily newsletter: https://ed.ted.com/

BrainPop is offering free access while schools are closed to its animated movies on topics in maths, science and English: https://brainpop.com

Tynker is giving kids free online coding courses during school closures: https://www.tynker.com/

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: https://youtu.be/Rz0go1pTda8
