Many kids are currently off School due to Coronavirus and it’s uncertain how long for. This means we are all now looking for home learning resources to carry on their education at home (not just for them but for our own sanity too!).
Personally, I had no idea where to turn to for online resources, luckily however I was given a few links and so have put them all together in this one list for us all to use.
Please note, some of these are free and some you have to pay for however many of them are offering some if not all resources for free during this time when schools are closed.
Here is my list of home learning resources for school kids…
BrainPOP helps you and your curious learners stay informed and on-track with free access during school closures.
Some days we have really struggled with the work the school has set. Instead, I have bought some workbooks off Amazon that some of the other school Mums recommended. The boys have found them much more enjoyable and manageable. They come in various subjects and age levels.
