Free primary home learning resources for parents during school closures

All of the home learning resources below are FREE. This list is continually updated so check back often. The latest additions are in orange. Some are free documents; others are subscriptions that are free at the moment. These companies have shared their resources for free during school closures. Please be aware that some may charge after a certain date or after your free subscription is finished. Resources are organised by year group and subject, but you can also use resources from a previous year group as a source of revision of previous learning for your child.

If you know of any resources worth adding, please get in contact with @MorgsEd on Twitter or leave a comment below. Huge thank you to all the teachers who have already shared their pre-made lists and resources.
