Mathematics

nrich

Our friends in Cambridge at nrich maths offer an excellent array of problems (with solutions!) and teaching/learning notes.

UCL ScratchMaths

The team at UCL ScratchMaths have put together a superb combination of maths ideas and an introduction to coding.  Aimed at pupils in Years 5 and 6, it's also a great intro for Year 7 pupils who haven't explored coding in Scratch before.  Highly recommended!

Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching

The Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching has an impressive collection of links to other learning sites.  Well worth exploring.

English Literature

Check out The Sarcastic Schoolteacher's amazing Youtube channel for some inspiring insights and awesome analysis of English Literature.  Another highly recommended offering.

Computing

Mr Fraser.org

Mr Fraser  Is a teacher of Computing whose site has been a useful resource to us for a long time; a handy "go to" for times when six students in a class want help on different topics and there's only one teacher in the room!  Take a dig around - his Programming Resources page has a load of further links which you might find handy.

Music / Music Technology

Music Tech Teacher

A "goodwill" site set-up by a Birmingham (Alabama) music teacher, this site offers an amazing range of resources for introductory Music Tech, practical music making, and more general music theory ...
Some really great stuff on that site.

Composing With Sounds

For some different approaches to making music with your computer and a microphone, head over to our friends at Composing With Sounds for an introduction to the mysteries of musique concrète.

Primary School Music

When the ABRSM teams up with Classic FM and Decca Classics, you can be sure the results are something worth looking at (and listening to!).  Some great stuff here for EYFS, KS1 and KS2: Classical 100 Primary.

Sensory Learning

Rhyming Multisensory Stories

A wonderful site dedicated to storytelling through the senses, with some superb onward links as well.  Rhyming Musltisensory Stories.

eSafety

The Internet and World Wide web can be wonderful tools for learning and communication - indeed, they have changed our lives in the last 25 years (writing as someone who is older than that!).  But, as with many things that have changed our lives for the better, the Web also has a darker and dirtier side.  It is vital that your learner (and you) stay safe out there surfing the Web.  Here are a few pointers to good resources for teaching and learning about Web safety.

"SWGfL are a not for profit charity ensuring everyone can benefit from technology free from harm.  Forming 1/3 of the UK Safer Internet Centre, our experts advise schools, public bodies and industry on appropriate actions to take in regards to safeguarding and advancing positive online safety policies."

Examinations

One question home educating parents often ask concerns how home ducated children can take GCSE and A Level exams.  Many FE colleges will allow "external candidates" to sit exams at their centres.  There are also exam centres specially for home educating families.  For example, Tutors And Exams run centres in Coventry, Bolton, Wimbledon and Doncaster where home educated children can take examinations:
