Homeschooling ideas and free resources for families in Medway
In this 90 second read, we share a useful list of free internet resources which might prove VERY useful as parents and carers in Medway start homeschooling.
Out of all this uncertainty and anxiety has come plenty of positives.
The recent news that schools in the U.K. were to shut for the foreseeable future was met with a wave of companies and organisations offering up learning resources for free.
For every instance of selfishness, there have been plenty more stories of community spirit and kindness.
Here's a list of some websites people have been generously sharing which will keep the younger members of our community in Medway entertained, interested and motivated. Useful for adults too.
Especially useful for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system, but it's mostly common material.
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No T.V. licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.
Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).
For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher-level material.
Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.
