COVID19 educational resources

We appear to be living in some interesting times!
This page is providing a bank of resources helpful for those looking for educational activities to do whilst staying home and staying safe.
If you have any suggested additions please email them to me at:

The resources are loosely grouped into those aimed at people with additional educational needs, those specific to learning about COVID 19 and the changes it is implementing in our lives and those aimed at students who attend mainstream schools.
