Hi there.

With England going into Lockdown 3.0 a few hours ago, I’ve noticed low cost or free resources pop up so I’ve started collecting them together. If they do have a cost or a promo code to make it free for instance I’ve included them where possible along with any dates that they expire for instance.

Twinkl really handy. (We used lots in Lockdown 1 to top up alongside the work set by school). School closure packs. Here.

    Wow! What an awesome collection of resources for parents and guardians, this is so great.

    I didn’t know about some of these, thank you for collecting them for us all in one place. So happy to see my list of places to travel digitally included too! Amazing post.
