100 Things to Do


The TTS group have created beautiful home learning booklets for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 which you can download totally free without even inputting an email address. A very generous offering from them and the learning is all fun and interesting with extras such as an opportunity for the whole family to learn fingerspelling.

Twinkl provides resources and downloads for all curriculum areas. Usually their premium content requires a subscription but they are offering all resources free in the event of school closures.

Teacher’s Pet is another site offering lots of free printables for download across a wide range of subjects.

Online Learning

Teach Your Monster to Read is a wonderful game made in association with leading educational experts and follows phonic phases 1, 2 and 3 in separate games. Perfect for EYFS through to KS1. Apps are available and paid for but the online website version is always free. Your child can follow their monster around and learn without realising how much they are learning to read!

Pobble is an online writing platform. They post a free picture a day with prompts for discussion and writing.

BBC Bitesize is always free and has videos, lessons, and games covering the whole curriculum all the way up to GCSEs.

Oxford Owl provides free ebooks all the time for children of primary age.

Duolingo is a free website made for language learning. One for all the family. Not specifically made for schools and you can pick whichever language you like. An initial assessment helps to pick up your current level if you want to improve rather than start from scratch.

Handwriting practice a bit a day will be essential for infant and junior age children. Handwriting Heroes has premium content and apps but their letter formation videos are always free so will help remind children of the right formation while practicing.

Music Theory has some content always free with lessons and exercises to do at home. For all ages and musical abilities.
