Online Activities – Education

There seems like there is far too much information about online educational activities for kids during the Coranavirus shutdown – I am not sure where to start. So to get started I thought I would list them all below and when I give them a try, I will let you know what I think.

Let me know about any you recommend and why.

Aspire Active

There is a timetable with resource and activity links to plan your day. Includes exercise and educational activities.

Chatter Pack

This is a blog that is full of links for different resources to use at home. There is plenty to choose from here.

Times Table Rock Stars

In either paper form or online, Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. For those whose schools are signed up there is free access at the moment.

Mathletics

Enter your email for free worksheets and activities.

Twinkl

This is the resource I have used most so far – it has so many downloads and activities it is hard to know where to start. Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS to get a month’s free membership.

Readiwriter

This site will help with spellings, including testing. You can take advantage of the free trial to get you started.

Enter your email to download a home learning pack for each year in KS1 and KS2.

Kidstars

This company is based in Singapore but their Facebook page has loads of useful free downloads, particularly for EYFS.

TES

A lot of these resources are aimed at teachers but they have plenty of free downloads for parents too.

Ruth Miskin Training

Head over to You Tube for daily phonics lessons which are available for up to 24 hours.

BBC Bitesize

BBC Bitesize are now offering daily lessons and resources for all key stages. There is lots of good stuff over on their website.

Monster Phonics

This resource helping children with reading and phonics is normally aimed at teachers but has opened up some of its resources to parents for free whilst the schools are shut.

If you are looking for other ways to keep the kids entertained whilst home-schooling or self isolating head over to the Family Fun at Home section.
