Shoolastics also gives money to your local school towards books which is more than what Amazon will do. (y) 🏻 Heat added. I just hope they publish the rest of the series.
Thanks for posting. Ordered all 4 for a birthday present
Anyone with a Kids+ subscription or Kindle Unlimited can also access the Kindle in Motion version of the Philosophers Stone for free. It's a good way to see what you'll be getting in the hardback: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073QVF5DD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_MbS-Fb62WKHKY
The paperback versions only have a select few of the illustrations, definitely go for the hardbacks (y)
Has anyone had experience with the paperback vs hardbacks (which I believe this deal is for)? The paperbacks on Amazon are even cheaper but don't want to get those if they're no good

There is a BBC adaptation of this too available for free on BBC iplayer. It's not bad but the main character is a bit wooden.
He’s stick man, he’s stick man, he’s stick man that’s he, just spreading some love to the HUKD tree
Stick man lives in the family tree Using HUKD to get resources for free One day he woke early with his mind full of fog For all this homeschooling had become such a slog "Stay home!" shouted Boris, "At home you must stick For if you go outside You'll surely get sick" "Wash hands, cover face make space" - and then "Wash hands, cover face make space" again "I'm not staying home! Why can't you see? I'm bored and I'm fed up, feeling lonely A stick man like me needs variety I can't stay at home in the family tree!" And that's how Stick man caught covid :(

Thanks copying and pasting went out of sync somwhere!
Not quite right Pre-Kindergarten = Reception (4-5 years) K1 (Kingdergarten) - Year 1 UK (5-6 years) 1st Grade - Year 2 UK (6-7 years) 2nd Grade - Year 3 UK (7-8 years) 3rd Grade - Year 4 UK (8-9 years) 4th Grade - Year 5 UK (9-10 years) 5th Grade - Year 6 UK (10-11 years) 6th Grade - Year 7 UK (11-12 years) Source: http://www.free-for-kids.com/uk-us-education-systems.shtml
It's worth adding the following US to UK conversions for schooling age: Pre-K1 (Pre-Kingdergarten) - UK Years Reception (4-5 years) K1 (Kingdergarten) - Year 1 UK (5-6 years) 1st Grade - Year 2 UK (6-7 years) 2nd Grade - Year 3 UK (7-8 years) 3rd Grade - Year 4 UK (8-9 years) 4th Grade - Year 5 UK (9-10 years) 5th Grade - Year 6 UK (10-11 years) 6th Grade - Year 7 UK (11-12 years)
Just don't give em the reading ones then. problem solved. Mathematics is universal. So should science be. But there are some UK ones too (We're using phonicsplay but our kids are very young) besides, it wasn't the US government that produced this one either. My kids are having so much free schooling it's crazy. They start the morning with PE what that long haired fellah on youtube then they do piano lessons, later on guitar lessons. They're going to come out of this having learned two musical instruments :) But yeah, sadly as a parent i'm also sick of the "zeee" and "fall" and all the other americanisms that plague youtube etc. But the content is there you just have to look for it! Good luck.
Or should I say hear, hear

Online Resource Bank (Free home learning pack including worksheets) @ ScholasticFREE£0.01
Hello, first post, Scholastic are offering a free pack for home learning from early years to year 6
thanks for the list, What about printout lesson and work sheets?
Saved for later. I think I'm going to be back here quite a bit.
And this: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/teach-your-monster-to-read-app-temporarily-free-at-itunes-3423133 Also free on other platforms
Thanks for this list, appreciate the effort! I've just looked at a BBC news article and it mentions Sir Linkalot (a spelling app) has announced it will be free for the duration of the Coronavirus outbreak, but I can only find a version that has a free one week trial. Anyone else have a better clue what they are doing than me? lol https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-51960865
(y) Fantastic resource listing, parvatik. Thank you for compiling it. (y) (party)
