KS2+ - FREE Structured core curriculum workbooks etc.

Back in the autumn we came up with a simple, mostly free core curriculum for folks new to Home Education in KS3. Now we've had a look around the web and tried to come up with a similar "starter pack" for new Home Educators of children aged 7+. Where possible we've given an indicative age range but please remember this really is a rough guide only - our children are so individual!

This selection is only designed to give you a flavour for what's out there - and there really is so much to choose from. Hopefully if we achieve one thing it's in helping you see that Home Education does not have to cost a fortune as nowadays there are so very many free resources.

In our Face Book group we take a closer look at more specialised learning resources for children with special needs. It's a great place to find out what works and what doesn't from other parents. We also include discounts for home educators when available on some specialist learning software packages etc. Do join us! 

Many thanks to Lynne Wilkinson for helping us compile such a useful selection of FREE resources!
