Back to homeschooling – 5 of the best online resources

With a further national lockdown announced, parents across the country are once again grappling with homeschooling their youngsters. We feel your pain! 

Several of the Liquid Friday team are working parents themselves, so to help you through, we’ve pulled together some of the most useful educational resources for homeschooling, or at least for keeping the little ones entertained.

We’ve chosen sites which are easy to navigate, offer activities at home which support remote teaching and keep young brains occupied for at least 30 minutes! 

Here are 5 of our favourites:

BBC Bitesize – free

Covering primary age all the way up to 16+, BBC Bitesize is split into three categories, so there is something for everyone, with content supported by activities, videos and tests.
