Home Educating is a courageous move, especially if you didn’t choose it – but lockdown landed it on you! This show helps with strategies to boost self-esteem, help with transition, encourage kids to be self-starters and how to hold your nerve when you’re feeling frustrated by slower progress than you’d hoped.

Here are some resources which are free (unless specified) during the lockdown.

Though some are free at all times. It’s not exhaustive by any means, and doesn’t include obvious ones like BBC Bitesize, but it’s a few faves from the Home Ed community. They're not full meaty curriculums, but just some fun ways to learn during this season.
