There are some great FREE online resources emerging under lockdown, aimed at children being homeschooled.  Here are a few we have spotted so far:

KidsCAN workbooklet on climate change for Y5&6:

Our very own downloadable workbook on climate change for Year 5 & 6 kids, based on SATs literacy revision. http://kidsclimateaction.org

Wild Days from Earthwatch:

Daily structured activities and video content to guide you through around an hour of outdoor learning that you can do in your own green space. For children aged 4-11. www.wild-days.org

Earth School from TedEd:

30 quests for kids around the world to celebrate, explore and connect with nature. Topics include the food we eat, biomimicry in transport’ (did you know a Japanese bullet train’s design is based on an owl, a penguin and a kingfisher?!), and climate change explained using a giant game of Tetris. With short videos, quizzes and even the opportunity to write your own quiz on any topic, my daughter LOVES this resource. https://ed.ted.com/earth-school
