BBC Learning

http://www.bbc.co.uk/learning/coursesearch/

Although this site is old and no longer updated there’s so much still available, for all subjects. It is especially good for science clips, quizzes and games.  No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.

Khan Academy

https://www.khanacademy.org

Especially good for maths and computing for all ages. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it’s mostly common material. If you join up as a ‘learner’ then all that is needed is a parent email contact and a child’s username and password. There are tuition videos for maths followed by short exercises and activities. Lots of click, drag and entering numerals- so younger children will need support with early readers and less confident or able learners may need support.
