Updated UK Home Education resources list

I have just updated my UK Home Education resources list. 

Again, please note that this is not exhaustive. These are products we use rather than everything that is available. Having said that, please do feel free to add items in the comments.

The new items are

Shakespeare Week-this supports an annual Shakespeare week aimed at primary aged children but has a list of useful resources for teaching younger children about the Bard.

CIMT is the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. They produce a free maths curriculum called Mathematics Enhancement Programme. In reality, this isn't quite free as workbooks need to either be printed or purchased. 

Poetry Line has poems by various modern poets including some clips of poets reciting their own poetry.

Centre for Literacy in Primary Education is mainly aimed at teachers but has some useful book lists.

Prim-Ed produces National Curriculum related resources for the primary years.

Toe by Toe is the website for the UK manual of the same name. This is a manual for teaching struggling readers to read. It is a no frills approach which is designed to be used by parents with their children.

Again, please comment with your favourite UK resources-I'm always on the look out for more ideas.

  1. I'll be checking out the Shakespeare week. We're doing a Shakespeare summer this summer and I'm sure this will come in handy. Thanks for updating and for all the work you tirelessly do to help other homeschoolers.

    1. Thank you, Claire. If you are thinking of going to Stratford do print out the Shakespeare passport as there is a good offer code for entry to houses connected with Shakespeare in Stratford.
