Very easy to use, UK curriculum linked daily resources for Early Years to Year 10. Five lessons released each week for each year group so you can do one a day. A video explains the concept.
Great free maths games from MathsFrame. If you'd like their worksheets and extra curriculum support you can also register for just £10 for a year.
Need some help with supporting your child learning maths at home? National Numeracy has produced a whole website to help called Family Maths Toolkit. It has lots of guidance about how to help your child and what they will be learning in school at their age. They have also provided for free a set of 'Everyday Maths' activities for ages 4-11. If you aren't confident in Maths yourself, the main National Numeracy website has lots of resources to improve your maths too!
White Rose Maths has helpfully produced a range of work booklets for parents and children to use over the summer or during next year. These booklets can be found on Amazon for the Kindle or downloaded from the website. There are between 5 and 12 booklets for each year from Y1 to Y6 divided into terms and topics.
All kinds of making. “...a free, easy-to-use app for 3D design, electronics, and coding. It’s for teachers, kids, hobbyists, and designers...”
This is a great block coding website made by the famous MIT in America. It is free, quite straight forward to use, easy to set up an account and there are lots of suggested projects online. Your child may well be using it in school.
Steve Spangler is my absolutely favourite Science Presenter (and this is my specialist area as I'm one too!). He has a great presentation style and is fun to watch plus he has a huge library of experiments you can do at home with reliable instructions and clear scientific explanations. Exciting science for children from about 5 to 16 plus adults will want to get in on the action.
