Free education resources for young people
The extraordinary situation we currently find ourselves in has affected all our lives, particularly young people, the vast majority of whom now find themselves being home schooled. In order to assist home educators, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has made its extensive range of exciting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) activities and resources available, free to all children and parents.
These resources provide home-learning teaching resources and activities for primary and secondary schoolchildren, including lesson plans, handouts and videos. They aim to ensure children can continue to be engaged and kept busy learning while their school is closed. The IET is a registered charity and one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community with over 169,000 members worldwide in 150 countries. As part of its charitable mission, it offers a wide range of STEM teaching resources and activities for those teaching STEM subjects to young people aged 4-19 years.
The education materials can be accessed at:
- Primary: https://education.theiet.org/home-learning-resources-key-stage-1-and-2/
- Secondary: https://education.theiet.org/home-learning-resources-key-stage-3-and-4/
The Premier League Primary Stars team have also been working to adapt their online education resources, currently used by over 40,000 primary school teachers in over 16,000 primary schools, to make them available to parents and families, with no need for registration. Everyone across the UK can access these free educational resources via the PLPrimaryStars.com website.
Primary Stars resources aim to inspire children to learn and stay active and can help add structure to their day at home. These online resources cover English, Maths, Physical Activity and Health and Wellbeing for five to 11-year-olds. The education videos and learning packs feature Premier League stars and mascots and there are also games and activities to help keep learning fun, enjoyable and active!
Well worth a look!
