Our schools are doing a fantastic job in supporting young people through their education remotely. Many students and parents I’ve been chatting to are keen to find additional materials to explore.
There’s a whole host of new, fun resources popping up to support children of all ages with their home e-learning - and to help us parents have a breather! Here is a mix of both my children’s and student’s favourites, including some from great local organisations like New Writing North and Centre for Life.
On top of all of these, it’s always good to remember the benefits of reading, whether it’s a book or a magazine, every read increases students literacy skills and helps develop a love of reading.
