Homeschooling Resources for Ages 4-7
May 29, 2020
To help keep education going through this time, Charlotte Gater our Head of Curriculum has collated her 10 favourite free homeschooling resources for you to use with your child.
Maddie Moate brings science to life every weekday at 11am. Each week has a different theme including Brilliant Bodies, Dino Week and Mission Space.
BBC Bitesize lessons
Covering wide-ranging topics from ‘Creating Lists in Sentences’ to ‘How to be a Good Friend’. Everything is helpfully broken into year groups and lots of experts are involved. I can’t wait for the David Attenborough geography lessons. You can also catch BBC Bitesize Daily on BBC iPlayer every day.
Mid Morning Maths with Bobby Seagull
Mid Morning Maths with Bobby Seagull ran for 8 weeks through the Explore Learning Facebook page during our first lockdown. Every Monday (ages 4-7), Wednesday (ages 7-11) and Friday (ages 11-14) at 10am a new topic was covered. You can now find all of Bobby’s lessons right here on our website, with a matching worksheet to accompany each one.
