Freebies and Discounts
A new scheme for home educators in Northern Ireland to share resources, these resources will travel around between families to support community and give us all access to interesting things... It will be organised through the HEdNI Facebook Group.
Our first Travelling Resource will be the Schools Pack from Historic Newspapers.
"Our free teaching packs are available in order to help students discover the cause and consequence of historical events. Hard copies are currently available to schools, universities, libraries and accredited education establishments only.
A newspaper is ideal for a history lesson. Each page is filled with stories from eyewitnesses, social history detail and topics for discussion. A newspaper is an enjoyable way to help learning and engage a pupil’s curiosity and imagination. Papers allow us to relate past events to the present day and be the starting point for debate on history and its significance today.
Many families and groups will be using the resources from http://shakespeareweek.org.uk/ in March this year... and exploring Shakespeare in families and at the various groups. The resources and 'passports to Shakespeare" are available to Home Educators if you register before February.
"Shakespeare Week is a national annual celebration giving primary school children a great first encounter with Shakespeare. Join the thousands of schools, families and organisations working together to inspire a whole generation of children through Shakespeare’s stories, language and heritage. "
Some really nice free posters and information from the British Heart Foundation.
In the classroom and at home, education is at the root of combating heart disease.
This is the place for teachers, parents and those who work with children to find out more about our free resources and training opportunities for encouraging young people to live a heart healthy lifestyle.
Our free resources cover everything from learning to read through to physical activity and education, science and PSHE.
We also have information for and about young people with heart conditions.
- Curriculum-linked classroom activities
- A water technology poster
- WaterAid's little book of teaching ideas
- Lots of stickers
Our wallcharts are aimed at teachers and students, or those with an interest in science, ecology and the environment. Each poster is printed A1 and introduces a range of topics. All wallcharts are available free of charge and are supported by additional online teaching resources.
By their nature these freebies are only offered for a limited time, but at the time of posting they appear to be available and open to home educators - please check with suppliers before you rely on the offer.
