Dr Frost as mentioned above to
Corbet maths too
elctutoring.co.uk/ - basically a free structured portal made to help with the current school closures with a daily timetable of lessons, topics and activities. Includes a live video assembly with teachers every morning. Click Go Into School, choose a year group (4, 5 or 6), pick a day and then make a free account and then you're good to go.

"....through this we aim to build a provision that offers a daily curriculum to students. The curriculum will cover subjects taught in school. At the same time, ELC's virtual school will also look to help build confidence, develop new skills and above all believe that they are capable of continuous achievement and progress.

We are conscious that resources can be difficult to find/print/organise and so our platform is designed to keep everything in one place. Everything required for a lesson will be accessed directly through the site."
