Home learning resources

I’m putting this list here for my reference as much as for anyone else to use. I made it from stuff I’ve seen on Facebook and Twitter this week, plus some zoology things recommended by a colleague. These are all resources that we haven’t had from school already. Anyway, these might be useful links to have all in one place. I’ll probably add to it over time.

If anyone is reading and has other things to recommend, please comment and I’ll add them. Thanks!
