Homeschooling with Barefoot x BT's Free ToolkitHomeschooling kids right now, can be challenging.

Some days just seem to flow aka my kids listen to me, others make me want to weep with stress (my children become feral).

This period feels completely different to when I homeschooled Oliver last year as we awaited a new school place for him. TOTALLY DIFFERENT. I’m now juggling two children’s different educational needs and their moods too!

Luckily, help is at hand and teacher-backed help at that.

The Barefoot programme in partnership with BT and Computing at School (CAS) has launched a free toolkit with fun, interactive and educational tech lessons so your children can continue their computing work from home.

homeschooling tips

If you didn’t already know, Barefoot gives primary school teachers the tools they need to deliver the computing curriculum in engaging and relatable ways, inspiring children to think, learn and thrive in a digital world with their programme being used in 70% of UK schools.

Their FREE toolkit provided parents/carers with safe online activities so our kids can continue to develop their digital skills at home.

The toolkit aimed at 5-11 year olds, includes –

  • 8x Learning Together Activities (activities based on teacher resources)
  • 1x Mini Missions activity (grid of 30 activities from BCS)
  • 3x Interactive Learning Games (with 3 more to follow)
  • Weekly computing at home Facebook Live classes by Dr Jon Chippindall
  • 1x Computational Thinking cheat sheet for parents, aligned to the national curriculum.

Both my boys love it and it’s alleviating the stress here too.

This is a sponsored campaign but as always, my words are honest.

    Homeschooling can be really tricky and I think a lot of mums and dads are finding it hard to try to do this and continue working too. It can be super stressful and challenging. Not just on the parents but I am sure on the children too. I love the sound of this Barefoot program though. I also found a really great website called Family Life at Home https://www.familylifeathome.co.uk/, it has loads of excellent homeschooling resources and links to educational websites, all in one place. My children love it and we often find that if we are stuck for something to do, we can visit the website and find some new ideas. Just a thought.
